MRS. R.S. YEGERLEHNER
Dear Daddy –
Sat. P.M. – the boys are out in the yard playing football with Dean. John seems to get quite a thrill out of the game. Of course Mark plays it all the time he can, at school & at home. I have been out watering the new shrubbery. We haven’t had much rain so far this fall. It was very warm & sunny today. The yard is full of leaves but why rake them – the wind will blow them away. The Zells are finishing the room upstairs for their girls. Due to labor shortage they are doing the work themselves. Mr. Z. & our boys are going to get some sacks of Ind. coal & fill the hopper to see if we can use it. We will have to do something because no Va. coal is being shipped in. I heard over the radio last nite more coal strikes are being called. Everyone is indignant about such things at a time like this but as I told Mrs. Z. that doesn’t solve the problems or hasn’t so far. We have to go to Sheldon to get some meat. We haven’t used much lately – due to chicken we brought home. Had a letter from Jim today. He doesn’t know what he is going to do – thinks he will possibly be sent out – but I am beginning to think he won’t be, but again you never can tell about such things.
