Tuesday afternoon
George darling,
It’s a lovely Spring day, baby is napping near me and I’m sitting near the lot opposite the house because it’s quiet and a sunny spot. We’re both fine and so happy about your homecoming. Mom and Pop are also walking on air and are so impatient to see their favorite son.

Yesterday was a quiet day, weather turned raw in the afternoon but baby and I managed to get the fresh air and a bit of sunshine in the morning and early afternoon. There’s such a difference between the country air and the stench in the city.

Jimmie has changed quite a bit in the past 10 days and you’ll probably see a sweet little boy when you return to your kingdom. But he’s always full of mischief and maybe he takes after his Mommy a bit (when she was a baby). When I speak to anyone on the phone now, he manages to take out the kitchen chairs, push around the table and make the place look like a total mess. He’s outgrown the grocery shelves and is going in for the bigger things in life. He is still very lovable and I’m so thankful that he’s well and happy.

The folks called yesterday and they’re both well. Sam left for Seattle, Wash. to work on a defense job and maybe gone for about 7 months. Last night I called Kay and she and Anita are well but will miss Sam while he’s gone.

Mom told them about your furlough and they’re very happy for all of us. Billy Rubel called and tried to get us on the phone since Friday. He inquired about us, glad to know that all is well and sends his best to you. I didn’t mention a word about your furlough to anyone outside the family.

Addie and Ben are still around, Addie without any new classification and Ben still in 1A. Ruby Smith, Eleanor’s working partner is also in 1A, 36 yrs. old with another kid.

We just finished our lunch and it’s time for us to go outdoors again so I’ll continue with more news to-morrow.

Keep well, my beloved, all my love and devotion to you, and I still love you with all my heart. A kiss and hug from precious and love from the folks.
As always,
Florence

P.S. is it O.K. not to write after to-morrow as I don’t think you’ll get my letters?
