Sometime today I’ll be able [to] plant a few more potatoes – for a fellow came in and gave me two good sized ones the center of which I ate and the outside I’ll plant but I still have my fingers crossed – Yesterday my little garden was under water and potatoes rot pretty fast in warm damp soil – So much for a lesson in horticulture.
There were rumors that some mail arrived but as yet none has appeared but maybe it will gradually be sifted out and get to us we hope.
I’ve been sitting and listening and talking so I’m not sure of what might get into this letter – Nothing bad because our conversation isn’t on a low level today.
Just had a little eye to eye battle with a lizard but he left. He ran under my chair. They don’t look good but they do catch lots of flies.
Well, I’m all written dry –
