"First Women" These ladies were not only the first women in Wahmonie, Nevada, they were business women as well and started the first gas station there. It was a rich strike in 1928, but it played out quickly. An N.E. Johnson Photo reproduced by Lawrence Publishing in Bandon Oregon
I found this postcard while RVing. Good quality for a reproduction.

To learn more about the Queen Mary their website is http://www.queenmary.com/
And to see more contributions to Postcard Friendship Friday go to http://thebestheartsarecrunchy.blogspot.com/
I have not seen the DVD linked to Amazon.com but it shows ghostly contacts made on the Queen Mary. Also on the Queen Mary site they have a Halloween graphic. I bet there is a great celebration of Halloween on board. Maybe a few ghostly visitors will come.

Had fun looking through an old album of mine with photos and souvenirs from my Camp Fire Days in the 1950's. In this picture I am a member of the Sunshine Blue Birds of Los Angeles. Look for me in the back row (3 of us at left side) I am in the middle.
The highlight of my Bluebirds and Canp Fire Girls Days was attending Camp Yallani in the San Bernardino Mountains above Redlands California. We slept outside on cots and I always worried about the bears. I remember my Mother driving me to a spot in downtown Los Angeles where I boarded a bus taking me to camp.
Reading through the brochure about Camp Yallani was a lot fun. I think it is a private camp now..Bluebirds no long exist and it is now Camp Fire and is coed. I can still hear the melody from the song Camp Yallani......
Finding this old envelope made me go looking for the album.
