“Dear Jean and Jerry,
I had a slight back injury when I was thrown from a jeep. It’s not serious but I’ll get a nice rest out of it and it will be a month or six weeks til I get my mail so all your pkgs and letters will pile up.
I had a nice Xmas dinner today and am really enjoying some good sleep in a bed with sheets!!! The going has been rough lately and the next couple of months may be nastier but we are hoping for the best.
Hope you had a nice Xmas and New Years. I suppose you were all together and had fun passing the gifts around.
Remember now, I won’t be commenting on your mail as I won’t see it for awhile.
