1941...More from George!!

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted any Grandpa George love letters. For new readers, I have love letters that my grandfather George wrote to my grandmother Fran in 1941 before they married....if you are interested it starts here.

June 14, 1941
(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.

Good night dumpling.
Guess who?

George's sweet woman...with their first 2 little dumplings...my aunt and uncle.
