Pinkie Came Home (Gladys)

Dear Daddy – It is cloudy & raining some today. Not cold but just in between. Didn’t get my mail again today. It has been more than 2 weeks now since yours of Apr 6 came – I think I have most of the letters you had written up to that date. Maybe by the time you get this I will have heard again – I hope – Hope my letters are getting to you. We had a little excitement – Pinkie came home (for Mr. Steinbaugh’s funeral) in an Army plane. He flew over town several times – too low for any good. Mark wrote you a letter about it. Floyd & Ruth have moved to Bluffton – In case you haven’t rec’d any word about his rejection the Draft Bd said he was too nervous – now beat on your chest again and let out a Tarzan yell. I may have to take a load of band members to North Manchester Sat for the contest. John was to go with Washburns but Angus has the measles. I had D. out in the yard a long time yesterday and he got quite a tan. It is too cloudy & wet to take him out today – He is a happy little fellow most of the time – no teeth yet. I think John & Mark will have him talking long before he really does. I am to go to Ruth M’s in May and take sweet potatoe plants. She said they were anxious to see D. again. It is getting near his 2 P.M. feeding and he is getting hungry, I think. This is a band concert at the H.S. tonight and I want to go if I can find a nurse maid. John will play so I should go.

Love – Mother

    Yes, this must have been an event: “He flew over town several times – too low for any good. Mark wrote you a letter about it.” 🙂

    Never thought I would read this in any of her letters: “now beat on your chest again and let out a Tarzan yell.” 🙂
