Recently, I had a visit from a
mother and her grown son. The
reason that they came was because
I’d told them that 1 had letters that
their husband and father wrote to
me during World War 11. There
were some 60 of them written
from training camps in the U.S.
and from overseas.
During that war, I worked for a
farm organization where 90% of

some were censored and words

only two parties have come to
claim their relatives letters. I shall
keep the rest a while longer.
People complain of animals eat
ing their garden plants but one
does not know how they feel until
the same thing happens to you.
The other night we went to cover
our tomato plants and found no
thing to cover. It was dusk and af
ter searching I discovered some
one-inch stubs. I’d thought that
with a lot of cats around no rabbits
would dare venture into my gar
den. 1 was wrong.
On a happier note, our daughter
in Texas surprised me with a big
bouquet of flowers on May Day.
When she was a child living at
home, she always picked flowers
and lay them at the front door on
May first Then she knocked and
ran away to hide and watch my
surprise when I opened the door
and found no one there. It is cer
tainly nice to be remembered.
