I haven’t really got down and bawled for a long time

Dec. 8 1950
Dear Mom, Dad, and Grandpa

If you have ever been run over by a 10 ton truck loaded with bricks, you know how I feel right now.  We had a 8 mile hike and then heard over the radio about no Christmas leaves.  I sure was looking forward to it.  I havn’t really go down and bawled for a long time, but if I do I won’t be alone.  Dome of the fellows even had their weddings set for them.  What a kick in the rear this is.

I don’t know whether or not it will be worth your while to drive out here.  I might not be able to even get out of camp.  I should find out real soon and let you know as soon as possible.

Five guys from Parkman Ohio were here today.  I gave them Opals address and told them to call her and say I said hello.  I got a letter from her today.

Well I hope your new house suits you ok.  It will be a lot better for you.  Escpecially since I’m not there to always mow the lawn amen.

I’m going to take an extra long shower – maybe holding breath for a couple of hours so if I don’t write tomorrow you know what happened,

I’ll write tomorrow
Love Karl
