Hello Margie

Received your last letter a heck of a long time ago but seems I just couldnt get around to answering it I was pretty busy there for a while and didnt do much writing at all and then as soon as I got the chance I went home on furlough Have been back almost a week now So at least I have a halfway excuse for not writing sooner

My little gal went home with me so I didnt have a lot of time to write while there We were too busy out seeing the down and all the relatives in town Nope I didnt get married I wanted her to meet the folks first and I also wanted to see what Mother thought about her Everyone liked her very much especially Mother so everything is hunkydory

We drove through and on the way we had blowouts and three tires go flat Quite a record huh Managed to get back without the least bit of trouble though Thank goodness for that The weather at home was pretty wet It rained every single day we were home so it spoiled a lot of our plans We intended to play a lot of golf and tennis and also go horseback riding but we were cheated out of it About all we got to do was bowl and play holes of golf But at least it was a rest and a change of scenery and it was home So we didnt kick a bit

Wanted to try and get down to see you and your folks but you know how the gasoline problem is And then too the weather was so bad that we never get out of town Would have liked for you to meet my little gal but guess itll have to wait until later Therell come a day though

You said you had a cold in your last letter Sure hope youre all over it by this time and feeling right in the pink again Ive been feeling wonderful and so have the folks at home The kid brother is doing fine too He sent home a bunch of souvenirs including a big heavy German flying suit It really is a dilly Think it weighs about as much as I do

Hows the Ohio River doing by this time Has it gone down much With all the rain we had while I was home it must have gone up quite a bit I hope it didnt get as far as the flood stage Still remember the one in

By the way do you ever hear from my brother I dont very often but Mother does quite often so Im thankful for that Did you know that he had been transfered to the Third Army Guess he will be part of the occupational troops now Hes not too crazy about that as he says he has already seen too much of that country over there In one letter he said that hed almost rather go to the Pacific than stay over there for or years I think hes much better off over there than in the Pacific and hes done more than his share of fighting already

Well Margie thats about all all I have time for right now and thats just about all I know Will try to do a little better next time Tell your folks I said "Hello" and write when you can but make it soon

Your cousin
