Amanuensis Monday - 1908 Postcard



This postcard comes from grandma Hazel's box of goodies and was written to my great-great grandma & grandpa Piggott from their daughter Alice.  She was my great-grandaunt.

Unfortunately I can't read the postal stamp, but the card must have been written and sent some time around Nov 1908, since their 39th anniversary was Dec 1, 1908.

It's addressed to Mr. and Mrs. W H Piggott, Bloomington, Idaho.

Dear Father & Mother,
Hearty congratulations
on the anaversary of
your 39th wedding
day. May you both
see many more &
happy ones. Hope you
are both feeling better.
Love to all Lovingly Alice

There is a little something more written up above over the green postcard print. This is my attempt to decipher it:

now the

frozen? 
Let me know if you can make it out.
