A Quote from Winston Churchill

"My idea of a good dinner is, first to have good food, and after this good food has been elaborately discussed, to discuss a good topic - with me as chief conversationalist."

Winston Churchill, in Tom Mix hat (named after the American western star), near Del Monte, California, during his visit to the Monterey Peninsula. 
29th October, 1929

This postcard is postmarked in 2015 with 7 stamps.  The sender write that she had no idea if there was enough postage but she wanted to use the Churchill stamp.  (I'm guessing there was enough for two postcards!)

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965) was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. 

He won the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.
