Leap Year Fun

I stay indoor today. It's Leap Year and from old Post Cards I do understand it can be dangerous out there. For Men. LOL.

You are welcome to enjoy these old Postcards (from 1908), which I scanned from a Magazine today.

Caged in for the occassion. Smart or stupid guy?

Who will swallow the bait first? "Skudaaret" means The Leap Year - 100 years ago.

What a trap - it says: Gold and green Forests. (what a temptation)

Hooked in the Park

That's it for now folks. Have a great Weekend

Oh yes, I had forgotten that men are in danger from females hunting for a husband on Leap Day... but you already are a husband so you are safe, Tor.

@: Hi you all. Leap Year Evening, according to traditions, Women could propose to men, without any risks.
But as you see at these old postcards, it was a very risky day for men - even married. LOL.

Don't worry, Tor. You're safe from me. One, you're married and two, I don't want or need marriage!

In the meantime, I hope you remained safe. Good little cartoons, too.

Take care.
