I’m having a great Valentine’s Day so far and enjoying yummy treats my wife got me as I write this. Here’s a Valentine’s treat for all of you, circa 1909:
Caption: “Valentine Greetings”
“Well Frank this is certainly going some.”
This was written to my great-grandfather by someone unsigned person. I’d love to know what it means. I googled the antiquated expression “going some”. Apparently, it can mean “a high level of achievement”” or “that’s a stretch of the imagination”. That only adds to this Valentine mystery.
I’ll have another Valentine treat for you later today…
