Treasure Chest Thursday - 1909 Postcard

Today's treasure comes from grandma Hazel's stuff. It is a postcard written to my gr-great- grandma Piggott.

It's postmarked Salt Lake City, 1909 and addressed to Mrs. E. C. Piggott; Bloomington, Idaho.  It reads:

Dear Mama
All well. I am
at Aunt Abbie's.
She sends her love
to both & was glad
to hear from you.
Am going to Aunt 
Alice's soon (today)
and have been 
in store all a.m.
having a small 
black hat trimmed
so you see I'm
busy Uncle & Annie
will be home today.  Best love, Alice

The Aunt Abbie she refers to is Abbie Piggott, sister of William Henry Piggott, Alice's father.  I haven't yet figured out who "Uncle & Annie" are.
