How’s my kids, fine I hope. Our cold seems to hang on but we are a lot better. Last week I worked outside racking the lawn so I have it in pretty good shape now. Sat eve I bought 65¢ worth of flower seeds so am going to plant them soon as it warms up. It sure has been cold Sun and today.
I wrote to Beany, Cliff and Dolores yesterday. I had a long letter from her. We had only a card from Beany but was so glad to hear from him. He said he hadnt gotten any mail. I wrote him two letters and Milly one and sent him three boxes. He may have gotten them by now.
Last Thurs eve I was in Monte to a Dist Convention. I installed the Dist Vice Grand. I wasnt a bit nervous either. Sun Dad and I went to church and in the evening we went to show. It was ‘The Navy Came Through’. We liked it. ‘Yankee Doodle’ is here Thurs, Fri and Sat. We sure are going to see that.
I have some very sad news for you. Bob Rooney you know the boy who got a metal for bravery was killed in action in North Africa. His parents got a telegram Sat and Timm’s got a telegram Sat. that Tommy is a Jap prisoner. You know they hadnt heard from him for over a yr till Sat. Also Bill Perry oldest boy of Dr. Perry and Sivert Halvorson is seriously wounded in Africa. Telegrams came today.
N. Dak and S. Dak and Minn guards were put into action in Africa about two weeks ago. We will hear more before this is over. I’m just sick thinking about my dear boys.
I sent you the Press today. You will read the write up about Ole Veum. He sure done something for his country.
I’m baking bread (Tues) tomorrow and I’ll send you a loaf Tues so I hope you get it Wed. Did you get the other loaf? Our letters may pass on the road as I spose you wrote to me Sun.
I gave Sniffy a bath Sat. I used Lux Flakes and he sure got snow white and then I put powder over him. He looked so nice.
Milly is sewing for the Red Cross tonite and Dad is reading funnies to Susan. Well must close and get this mailed before nine.
I love you so much. Love Mom”
