About Chris

Every day, Chris gets one to three scoops closer to his dream of an ice cream-only diet. If he's not indulging his sweet tooth, Chris is using his child-like energy levels to play rubber snake pranks, converse with countless puns, and capture the world in photos as he walks. If you aspire to have a perfect Pittsburgh accent or have a passion for periodicals, he would love to talk over afternoon coffee.

    Nice cards! My grandparents had an orchard near St. Joe/Benton Harbor, called Schueneman Orchards. My uncle owns it now. I think the family first moved there in the 1950’s or so. I remember climbing in the trees with my (numerous!) cousins during apple-picking season. Fun times!

    You have found such lovely images! Old postcards can be such a wonderful insight into the past. A vintage postcard reminded us so strongly of Felicite of Flaubert’s A Simple Heart, we bought it. Have a look at this lovely old postcard and lots more here
