Haven’t received any mail from you today but I am writing anyway. I’ll try to write every day. Please try to write every day too, hon, even if you just sign your name.
Today, I went to work as usual. We had extra work to do today. I had 2 girls working for me. We made 200 gift hosiery boxes for Father’s Day which is this Sunday. It was terribly hot here today. I wish we were allowed to work with shorts.
Have you been working hard today? Are you still drilling, hon? What kind of work do you do? Have you ever been on K.P. since Sunday?
Don’t forget to try and call Sunday noon.
I think Mary + I are going to Iona SUnday night. As yet I don’t know who will be playing. Tomorrow night I’m going bowling with the same girls that I did before. I’m sure we’ll have a good time.
We’re all going to wear our slacks. They really are sharp looking.
Have you gone to town yet?
Have you attended any U.S.O. dances yet?
If so, how are they?
Did they have a tag-dance?
Little Sammy from Brier Hill signed up for the Merchant Marines. He’ll leave next month if he passes.
Do you know Bobby Wolfe and his boyfriend Johnny from Campbell? They both are leaving for the Navy next week. I’m telling you hon, no one is here. Red is leaving for the Army Friday.
Hon, I knew you would get to like the Army. I’m glad you did, because if you didn’t, it would seem more hard for you.
Darling, until tomorrow, I’ll be writing, and in the meantime praying. Miss you, hon. Love and kisses.
Your short stuff,
P.S. Don’t forget to tell me what WOOLAAKOEW means
