My darling George,
As you can see I still didn’t get any stationary, but I don’t think you will mind.
I’ve just come back from taking care of Skipper & Dan. Margie & Dan wanted to use the last chance they have of going to the show together. dan is starting to work at the Buick plant from 4 o’clock until 12:00 midnight. I don’t think he will be able to do it. He has the awful habit of falling asleep about 10 o’clock at night or even earlier.
Darling remember the times you & i went to bed at 10 o’clock & slept to 4. Remember how God would always manage to wake us up by 4:00 or 3:45. Once or twice he slipped up and I got home at 4:30.
I’ve told you before our division at work had a dance Saturday nite. Gee it sure was a success. We sold over 1000 tickets. I think they made about $500 profit. In spite of the hotel costing $225 & the band $325. They are already planning a X-mas party. Oh my darling I sure wish you & I could be together for Xmas. Do you think it is possible stinky?
I’m very sorry my darling about not having written to you for such a long time a few weeks ago. If you don’t mind I’d like to forget about the whole thing.
I was very sorry to hear you failed your exam in ECL. I can very well blame myself for that. I’ve beaten myself every nite since then.
Tomorrow is our bowling league nite. I sure hope we got ourselves in first place last week. We will find out tomorrow.
Mother is calling me now to put warm applications on her ear. I’ll have to leave you for a while my darling.
Please forgive me my sweet. I pray to God each nite that you & I can be together soon & take up our life where we left off before you went away. It will soon be six months since you have been gone & it seems like six years.
I love you my darling although sometimes I have a funny way of showing it.
God bless you & keep you safe for:
Your loving wife,
