Paris 1945

Paris 1945

“Dear J. & J.,

Got a letter from Beany today written on Feb. 23. He had been to Paris on a short leave and he and 2 other officers and a Red Cross American girl had taken pictures. He sent me one. Its just grand of him. The first thing we noticed was his dimples. He was leaving soon for his new job. He hadnt gotten mail yet but said he expected it to come soon as he got there.

Milly got a bottle of perfume from him yesterday but as yet I havent gotten mine. Milly is up to get a finger wave now. We both got a permanent (a cold wave). My hair sure is curly for onces.

Tonite I’m going to see ‘Nothing But Trouble’ with Laurel and Hardy and tomorrow nite ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’. We are all going then.

I sent you a box yesterday. Hope you get it for a Sun. treat. I miss you all so much. Dont work to hard. Am always thinking about you. Please write often. I love you.

Mother & all”

    After all Uncle Beany went thru since D Day I wish we could have seen the picture of him smiling and see his dimples.
