Second Hand News (Roscoe)

Dear Mother,

No mail again today but each day there seems to be a little and one of these days it will be my time to receive.

I’m beginning to believe that every day is a little overcast and only once in ever soften there is a clear sun shining all day long. In fact there has only been one real fine day since I’ve arrived. There really hasn’t been enough sun shine for me to get the directions all straight. However it isn’t that hot sticky weather we used to have so I’m satisfied.

Our Radio news here are not as clear as at the last station. KWID is hard to get on the radio here. I don’t believe I told you but I sto sold my part of that radio to a fellow there because those things are really scarce in those parts. All of our news here come thru local stations and it’s more or less second hand.

There is no reason for spoiling two pieces of paper – So Solong Love Daddy

    ” ever soften” should read “ever so often”

    ” it isn’t that hot sticky weather we used to have so I’m satisfied.” Later, in Indiana, the new house had central air conditioning, to make those humid Indiana summers bearable. 🙂
