This was a gift from kelloggs2066 and his wife. It is a old steel-engraving from a old magazine, illustrating a story in which penguins played a critical role. The illegible title is "Fortunately some penguins arrived on the island". To quote the card:
This page came out of a 1901 edition of a Readers' Digest type book called 'Chatterbox', first published in 1872. If you carefully open the frame, the story about two German brothers stranded on a rocky islet can be read. The fortunate advent of the penguins saved their lives.
I would venture to say that it wasn't a very fortunate Advent for the penguins, but the brothers must have gotten out OK.
And I'm scared to open up the frame, lest I sneeze and wind up with a handful of century-old confetti.
So thank you, Scott and Kathy. You're very twisted people, and I love you to bits.
