Dearest Loved Ones:

Hello everyone, how are you? All fine I hope. I am tops and raring to go. I received your letters and pictures today. The pictures are swell and thanks a lot. I also got a letter from Edie today. So I am in good spirits. I haven’t heard from Johnny as yet and I guess I won’t see him here after all.

I’ll bet you had a nice time at Banff – eh Mimi? I sure would liked to have been there. That is one place I have never been. Oh well maybe some day.

How is my little Rose? and Ray and Barbara? Gee I’ll bet you’re growing up eh what? Edie says your shy Ray. Come on now give her a big kiss for me and also give Mom and Dad and Barbara and all the girls a big kiss and hug.

Please give Hammy my congrats on his success in the exam. That’s sure a fine start.

Is “our” garden still sprouting? I could sure go for some swell, fresh peas and corn etc. The weather here has been very poor lately and we had a blackout last nite. The airplanes put on a swell show just before dark. It was a grand reminder.

Cathy and John gave me a toilet kit holder. It sure is handy. It’s too bad Gordie didn’t finish I guess he would like to get into a transport drivers’ job. He may get it now. Yes it is nice to have fellows around, whom I used to know in civilian life and Manning Pool. They keep coming in every day. A couple who were at I.T.S. with me came in the other day. We sure were surprised and glad to see each other. Your letter was very interesting Mimi and you sure did do well on your birthday – eh what? Yes Mom, I’ll wash be-ind me ears.

Edie tells me all the good times she has at our place and it sure is nice of y’all. She really likes you all.

I haven’t seen Joe lately. I guess he is kept rather busy. Well folks – I’m in the biggest hurry and have plenty to do. So I’ll say bye-bye for now. Please say hello to everyone for me. Please write as soon as possible. It’s really nice to here from y’all.

All my love to All of you and God bless and keep you,
