Dear Buck,

Well, four eyes, how goes the battle, Got them all to write again in June?

Glad to hear that the shoes and bracelets arrived O.K. So you think that picture of me swinging the pick was a put-up job eh? I’ll have you know it takes a good man to did a slit trench faster than me.

Are you getting you peach paint on the bathroom? Peach and blue – ugh.

Glad you got the pictures for your wallet.

Hope those pictures of you in your glad rags get here soon. Jeanne has been asking to see a picture of you for a long time.

So he stood you up for the sweater dance yah yuk yah.

Glad you had a good time over at Beaus at Easter – any swimming or is it still a bit cold for that. But you cant make me use a drool cup by talking about food. The food here is so good I threw my drool cup away long ago. We even have ice cream over in England now. Its a good thing that Stans hamburgers are still on the beam. I’ve been bragging to Jeannie about them.

We didn’t do any four mile walks this time. Managed to grab a fast cab every time.

Guess thats about all the gen for now except that Jeannie and I are going to get married probably the next time I get over to Merrie England.
