Oh you may think this is an ordinary picture with Santa, but that wouldn’t be Vilma’s style! What’s so special about this picture? Turning the picture over, in her writing, was the line:
“Hi Jack, wish this was you impersonating Santa Claus. Love Vi”.
Oh boy, the fella who was the recipient of that picture probably felt like the luckiest guy in the world! But not so fast… I found two more of the same pictures, each with a slight variation on the back.
“Hi Larry, wish this was you impersonating Santa Claus. Love Vi”.
Well now, it seemed it was too much to have to write in each of her boyfriend’s names, there were so many you know! So a generic salutation would just have to make do:
“Hi Doll, wish this was you impersonating Santa Claus. Love Vi”.
I just about fell off my chair in a bout of delightful laughter. Who else would find it necessary to mass produce pictures for all of her boyfriends? Only Vilma of course.
