Tracy the Troublemaker

Remember Tracy? No, of course you don't, but I suspect he was a real character. I  have a number of postcard addressed to him. Click here for a link to the previous one, where it appears he had been trying to fix a ballgame. And here's another one below, postmarked February, 1906.  Oh, Tracy, what have you done?
Hmmm, no indication of who sent it.


  1. i agree, this tracy sounds like trouble. clearly the sender thought the message on the card was eloquent enough and declined to sign it! happy PFF!

  2. I love this card, but what is that thing he's using the squash the heart?

  3. You know, I wondered the same thing. I don't know what it is, but it reminds me of those things that workers use to level pavement. Peculiar, isn't it?

  4. Dear Christine: On the 26th I reveled in your writings and postal cards of my parents. Thank you again. My Dad would have laughed hysteri-cally at your comments on these exchanges.
    (I have seen him do it in a Laurel & Hardy, or Abbott & Costello movie.) He was quite a movie fan, but my Mom did not care about them much. He was a man ahead of his time, a great "tinker" on his farm, constructing needed helper items. He went yearly to the Delaware County Fair to go up in the earliest Piper Cub Airplanes. Not my Mom or us kids! He also had one of the first autos around and he and a neighbor, Ralph Holcomb, used to race their autos coming home from church. I always heard this story: One Sunday a Model-T tire flew off and through the air, ending up encircled around a fence post. I was told the four of them could not stop laughing. Oh, the good ole days!
