June 17 – 1943
Dear Daddy –
No letters today but rec’d 8 Mon. and two yesterday. The latest date was June 5. The 100⁰⁰ ck. finally came. The letter you mentioned of May 16 hasn’t come yet. It was supposed to get here in a hurry. I got a permanent this morning – and not before I needed it. I went to the shop where the Kent. Const. Co. used to be. The operator takes only one person at a time and is very good in her work. Quite a relief to get work done in a place like that after the waiting one usually has to do elsewhere. I think several people around town have changed shops for that reason.
This being Thurs. afternoon the stores are closed. That doesn’t make much difference to me because I never have time to go to town every day. I like to work in the yard after the sun isn’t so hot – I worked one side of the shrubbery in
[page 2] front of the house yesterday but the east side was still too wet – It has rained so much this week I couldn’t do much hoeing. Mark is with Mr. Zell planting potatoes this afternoon. When it gets a little cooler I am going out & cut off the spinach & plant something else – maybe sow carrots. Also pull the rest of the radishes for something else. The radishes are all going to seed.
I scanned the Democrat for news items but didn’t see anything I thought would interest you. John is out with the lawn mower doing some edges he missed yesterday. David is out in his buggy – should be going to sleep but isn’t. Mother is with him. Mother has been under the weather since the heat wave last week-end and I am having her take Bepron – in case you haven’t forgotten – it’s Beef liver & iron – I am taking it myself. I feel good but think it well to take something once in a while to keep in shape.
Had a letter from your Mother – The boys down there are about thru planting corn. I think they are up here now.
I must go out and see about David.
Love – Mother
