What a treasure for you Eva. That certainly is a keeper!

Just curious, do you know why it was from Pam and not Pam and Audie?

No, I never asked. My theory always was that Pam was the traditionalist; and Audie didn't give a hoot about such things. I don't mean CHRISTMAS, exactly, but the destinct American tradition of sending out Cristmas cards en masse.

Very Nice...I have found Christmas Cards from the Murphy family, but this is the first
one I have seen with just Pam. Interesting 1966 item, Eva.

AHA! I thought he was up to something around that timeframe...

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=Lw ... iers&hl=en

According to this 1-1-1967 newspaper article, Murphy spent the last days of 1966 in Paris, France, taking a breather before moving onto a meeting in Algeria about a possible movie deal.

So, whatever he personally thought about Christmas cards, etc, he would probably have been up to his eyeballs in preparations for the trip at the time Pamela sent the cards out that year.

That still doesn't explain why Audie's name was not on the card also. My wife sends out Christmas cards(I don't),but she puts my name on the cards.
