Pretty Picture Day

Whew! That was exciting. I tried to be responsible and grade, but I could only knit like a machine gun. I tried to watch the election results, but every second where there was no change felt like a lifetime.

And today I have no time, so it's pretty picture day.

A Mainzer Cat postcard.

So-called Mainzer dressed cat postcards were published in the mid-twentieth century and have been occasionally reissued in the years since. They're characterized by their brilliant colors and very detailed scenes of dressed cats going about very human-like activities.

Grandma has dropped her ball of yarn. Can you find it for her?

Mainzer because these cartoons originated in Mainz?

Cute picture.
