Dear Folks

How are you today? I received a nice long letter from you. There isnít much news to write. Didnít hear anything definite as to what we are going to do. One thing I can say tho is I donít think we are going across.

I got seven letters today; 2 from Betty, 2 from Virginia, l from Laurence Pacha, 1 from you and 1 from Selma, also both papers.

We had our check today to see if we had everything we started out with. I had everything.

Sure wish the old sow had did better but you should have plenty of milk for them and the really should be good.

Selma said they had heard from Lloyd and he was still in Hawaii.

I think we will go to some coast and stay there for quite a while. Virginia seems to think that she has a pretty good place to work.

I feel as good as I ever felt in my life.

Selma said that it had been raining up there too and was pretty chilly and that Uncle Everett had been catching quite a few fish.

Well folks I wish I could tell you something about what I am going to do, but donít worry and Iíll write as often as I can. In the mean time you write here as always only put the A.P.O. on my address. I must write Virginia a note. I got two swell letters from her.

I donít think Iím going to send my shoes home but may send a package. Will tell you later.

Lots of Love and Luck
