(Day after Wed)
Hi you sweet woman:-
Finally finished work a few minutes ago, and before going to bed thought I would write to my honey. I believe I promised to write some time last night. And seeing as how I don't like to go back on my word here she is.
Got home safe and sound last night at 2:30, and it seems that I wasn't in bed more then a couple of hours (3) before I was getting up again. At the present time my fanny sure is dragging. The family was up again today. I don't want you to feel bad about it, because it's my own fault, and what's more I sure do enjoy it. I was ready to see you again tonight but then I thought no I had better not. I will never see enough of you Fran honey.
Tomorrow I will be cleansing chickens and by the time you get this, I will be in Harrisburg selling them to the towns suckers, at least I hope so. Haven't heard anything from the draft board as yet, so maybe they don't want me after all.
Well honey it's 10:30 and I think I had better start for the attic as this is one night I want my good old bed. Sure wish I had a bed woman waiting for me.
