Easter in Kentland (Gladys)

1943-04-25Letter transcription:


Dear Daddy – Easter Sunday and about bed time. It rained most of the day but wasn’t cold. David is used to being out of doors and it was too cloudy to try and take him out in the buggy so I walked around in the yard with him. He was a bit disappointed when we came back so soon. I looked our garden over – there is spinach, peas, lettuce & radishes up. Bill F. said we are to have a heavy frost May 15 – The Seed Com House has a weather indicator and that is where he got his information – He says it isn’t always accurate. I didn’t go to Church today – but listened to several radio church programs. It is a little hard to manage the baby’s bath & 10 a.m. feeding. He is as regular as a clock on that 6 a.m. bottle. I hope I get some mail tomorrow. The latest I have is of Apr 6 – Just 4 letters came last week and they were Mar 27-28-29-30. I was cleaning out a place & found the v-mail you wrote to Mark Sept. 20 – 1942 J. & M. just have 3 more weeks of school. John mowed the lawn for the first time yesterday – I think several around here did their first – then it rained so the grass has a nice start. Ours isn’t so nice, but can’t buy lawn fertilizer this year so it will have to get along without. I worked on the shrubbery myself – I separated some of the larger bushes and filled in some blank spaces. If they bloom as good this year will take a picture and send.

Love – Mother

    Funny that Bill F would be predicting a hard frost in the middle of May.

    We never missed church when I was growing up, so she made up for Sundays missed because of my 10:00 a.m. feeding!
