Dear Mom, Dad, and Grandpa;
Howdy! Wow did this weekend go fast. I seen a show last nite and one this afternoon. that is all I ever do.
I got some prices on photos. 3-5 by 7’s cost $7:50 gold tinted and $2:50 extra apiece for oil coloring. What do you think?
We go on the firing range tomorrow afternoon. I don’t even know how to load my carbine. I’ve onlly had 4 days training when I was supposed to have 4 weeks. Thats what I get for being a good worker.
I have made arrangements to come home by car. I will know for sure tomorrow. There will be 2 cars with 5 in ours. We have promised not to drink or drive excessively fast. One is a 47 ford, the other a 48 ford. At $75 a round trip, it sounds petty good. So get the tree up.
By the way, I have definitely made my mind up to just buy Marsha a gift. Will you please get it for me? There is nothing out here. I will reimburse you when I come home.
P.S. I got the watch.
