One of Those Old Fashion Winters (Gladys)

1943-01-26Letter transcription:


Dear Daddy – Clear and cold today. This must be one of those old fashion winters people talk about. Mr. Monroe is here this morning checking the furnace oiled and aired. He says everything is fine. I am on a club committee this afternoon. I would rather stay in since it is so cold but maybe it will do me more good to get away from home for a little while. I will wear my new coat and keep warm. I haven’t gone much this winter and need to get away from the house now & then. Arleen went to Laf. on the bus Sat. and when she told me I told her to let me know next time and I would take her so we may go one day this week. I don’t mind driving now because the traffic is slowed down and not much of it. There are hugh [huge] signs all along that say “Government orders drive only 35 per.” The ones I have noticed that do not keep to that are mostly out of state license. I hear David grunting and it is time for his bath – and pablum – the latter he doesn’t care much for but “mama” pokes it down him just the same. He does better than at first, however if he doesn’t get it he is hungry so has to have it. No letter today but had 3 yesterday (Jan 13-14-15). The J.A.M.A. is still coming – will talk to Dr. M. about your Co. dues. Dr M. sent you a box of goodies.

Love Mother
