To My Husband [“The stinker” written in ink]
On Our Anniversary

     Ain’t Love Sweet!

Printed on the inside of the card:

The day you asked me that certain query (Will Ya Marry Me?)
I used good SCENTS and said “Yes, dearie” (Smart Girl, Me!)
Your kisses still can turn the heat on (Whatta Thrill!)
You’re still the guy I’m awful sweet on! (Here’s to 100 More Anniversaries!)

Written inside the card by Alice:

I’m all yours

    They don’t make anniversary cards like that anymore. Almost all the ones I read these days are apologies for not being perfect. “We’ve had our troubles but I still love you,” seems to be the prevalent anniversary sentiment in cards these days. Who writes these things!
