My Very Dear Folks
I’m always addressing me mail to the kids I think its about time I addressed some to you. Well to being with I’m in fine health, but getting kind of tired of this mess. How have you been mom are you still as pretty as you were when I left, it seems like a thousand years ago, does pop still threaten to buy that derby? God if I can just get back just for a little while everything would be ok.
Say Fran ou asked about the Jap. jerks as you called them, well I saw a few yesterday, and take it from me there not small, they don’t wear big glasses, and there vicious fighters. I see them every time I go out in the road but hell they can’t touch me, so don’t worry.
