Dear Daddy –

The rain seems to have cleared away – at least it is sunny this a.m. and very refreshing. Just hope it stays this way a day or so. It has rained so much and there are floods everywhere in the low lands. Got yours of May 3 & 4 with the Mothers Day greeting. Wish I could send you one of the frozen hens. You should have the seeds by now. Mark pulled up a radish and we will soon be having some. I think he will be able to do some weeding this afternoon. John is working on the lawn now and Mark is keeping David out in the buggy so he can get plenty of sunshine today. He was in all day Wed & Thurs so needs all he can get today. We have our washing hanging on the line. Mark left his watch in his pants pocket and it went thru the Bendix so I think it is probably finished. We aren’t going to Ruth’s today because it has rained so much Earl couldn’t set anything out today, but if it stays clear we plan to go tomorrow afternoon. We have a lot of work to do around here now that is has stopped raining and we can do something. To date the check you mentioned hasn’t arrived, but your letters of May 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 & 8 are still enroute. The box you mentioned before leaving Noumea never came. Maybe it will trail in but it has been more than three months since you sent it so I doubt if it gets here now. Will get some more pictures taken this week –end if it is nice day – David will be 8 mo old Sunday.

Love – Mother

    Ooooops: “Mark left his watch in his pants pocket and it went thru the Bendix so I think it is probably finished.”

    I think it’s interesting that people shared plants as much as they did, and would drive long distances to deliver them. All part of keeping up the food supply, I suppose. But flowers too.
