Sailing Through Sundays on The JC: Happy Valentine's Day!

Hearts and flowers to Kevin Kidney for supplying today’s special Valentine’s Day image. What a cruise this would be! See more vintage (and current) Jungle Cruise photos on my regular website.

Vintage Valentine's are great, weird wording though...Shouldn't it be "for" you?

I thought the same thing as William. "After" almost makes it sound like a Valentine from a stalker. What a cool item though! I'm assuming there were more Disneyland themed Valentines made?

Prepositions change more frequently than other words in a language, because their use is mostly arbitrary.

100 years ago "after" would be rather common. 50 years ago (about when this card was made), it would be distinctly old fashioned, but used because of the comic situation of chasing "after" the boat. Today, the usage is extinct in US English.

Thanks Kevin!

Gosh they're happy go lucky swine aren't they? They can't get off the boat or he'll eat 'em, yet they're smiling like mad! Must be very sure of their boat and fuel supply... or maybe it's just that they're sure they'd float. :)
