Well I got your first letter telling about hunting, on this the last day of the season. Strange as it is, this was also my first day of hunting.
Went out around the airfield here. Put up 3 or 4 pheasants but they were all out of range. I’m hunting with skeet shot #8’s, so they really have to be close if I’m going to get them. Continue reading →
How do you like this? Two letters in one day. A new second for me no doubt. Whats the occasion? Nothing except I felt like answering the letter I got from you tonite. It’s the one with the last of the pictures, I believe & also the one that was started at the second ball game.
As you know now, I listened to each & every one of those games. The boys really kidded me when I went up to see the gal in Hasselt one nite & spent most of the time listening to the ball game, which she didn’t understand & I didn’t bother to explain to her. Continue reading →
“Ise regusted.” I had a whole page written to you when I discovered I’d written it on the back of a letter I’d started to Mae about 5 days ago.
Just got through writing a line to Marshall & Celia. As it would be a month from the time of Jerries death till he’ll get my letter, I thought it would be better if I made it rather brief so I only wrote a page. There just wasn’t anything I could say. Continue reading →
Will start a line now anyway. Haven’t written for 3 or 4 days. Got the two big air mail letters with the funny papers in them today. I wouldn’t bother to do that anymore. It costs 3 times as much as the paper was worth in the first place. I get the sunday funnies sooner or later anyway. They’re usually a month & a half to two months old but they’re new to me. Sending the daily ones in a letter is o.k. but it just isn’t worth it to put out that much for stamps to send me the Sunday ones. I know, there’s my Scotch blood showing up again.
I never seem to be able to keep even with the mail situation anymore. One day I’m 3 or 4 letters ahead & the first thing I know I’m 5 or 6 behind. Owe Myrtle, Mae, Stella & Katzie letters at present. Hardly even hear from Diane anymore. Guess her man must have finally got home. With Sis moving, will have to start writing her separately again. Continue reading →
