The back noted:

Robison's 2008 Christmas Card. Inspired by Vivian's 11th grade math course.

Robison's 2009 Christmas Card was late, so we sent it in time for Groundhog Day.  Art by Vivian. Look closely at the calendar to see two politicians debating. The right one might look familiar.

We became "empty nesters" in 2014. The kilt signifies Vivian's move to Carnegie Mellon University for grad school. The running shoes denote Arch S. running cross-country at Harvey Mudd College. The dance shoes mark our return to regular ballroom dancing. Quick quick slow...

The back detailed some family and local events beginning with N: Newlyweds, New job, Neural Networks, No longer, Nevermore, New York Times, News Gazette, No kitchen. The last because of remodeling.

Our  pandemic-themed "2020 Holiday" card that came out in February 2021. 

Another schedule slip, this time for the "2021" card. Hallquark comes through by manufacturing a holiday.

I had planned on multiple colors, but in the end that seemed like pointless ornamentation, hence the black and white design.

Card shipped on schedule!

I was short of ideas for a 2023 Xmas card, hence a card for 2024 Groundhog Day. The computer is my high school's IBM 1130, one of the first computers that I learned to program.
