I’m sorry it’s so late. I’ll have to hurry to get this in the mail before 8:30. I didn’t realize it was so late. Mrs. Burnett came by today & Dot was downtown so she came over to our house. Then we went over to Dot’s about 5 o’clock. Dot still wasn’t home so I fixed supper & we all were talking so much, the time just slipped by.
Well, how did you like that game today (3-2 favor Cards)? It was really something, wasn’t it? By the way, honey, who are you rooting for? The Browns, I guess. I am too, cause they’ve never won a Pennant & are really fighting hard! It seems kinda funny to root against the Cards, tho, doesn’t it? Oh well, I root for the Browns one day & the Cards the next – either way, St. Louis can’t lose this year!
I went to the Dentist this morning & had my teeth cleaned. Dr. Winterer couldn’t get over what good condition my gums & teeth were in! He told me the last time I was there that my gums would probably start bleeding a little – but they never have at all! He said my teeth & gums were in perfect condition & it sure made me feel good! I guess it’s due to the vitamins I’m taking. If my teeth are in such good shape – you can imagine what good teeth & bones Butch will probably have, cause if a baby doesn’t get enough Calcium while the mother is pregnant, the baby takes it from the mother’s teeth & bones. That’s why so many women have trouble with their teeth when they’re pregnant. But I guess we won’t have to worry about that. It didn’t hurt at all when Dr. W. cleaned my teeth & I tho’t sure it would. I decided to clean house tomorrow – cause Mrs. Burnett was here anyway, & it was 1 o’clock before I got home from the Dentist. I ironed & did a few other things while she was here. I tho’t I’d wait til Sat. or Mon. to go see Dr. Riordan. He’s coming back tomorrow but I know it will be a “mad-house” the first day & I have so many things I want to ask him & settle with him. Then, too, I’ll know after Helen gets here if A. Effie is going to Frisco & I can tell Dr. Riordan that. Helen wrote Dot today, they are leaving Sat. morning around 9 o’clock instead of noon, so they will get here about 2 or 3 oclock Sat. aft.
Well, I didn’t get a letter from my sweetheart today but I’ll get 2 tomorrow. That usually happens when you mail your letter from Oakland. Altho, I can’t understand it – I got your Sat. letter yesterday (Wed.) & that’s the one that’s usually late. ???
I’m so glad you saw a good game Sat. I always try to get the score Sat. nite, of the games you see, honey. Sure wish I could have been there, I’m sorry you had to go alone. Do the fellows that have to work Sat. & Sundays get a day off during the week? That sure is tough if they have to work all the time.
If I come out there, I sure hope you don’t have to work on Sat. & Sun.
It’s too bad Robke had to miss the easy day’s work out at that fellow’s house. I hope you got to go, tho – & had 2 nice meals again, darling.
A. Ruth was out last nite & I guess she is going to try living at our house while I’m gone, it’s not settled yet, tho. I feel kinda sorry for her – you know, she doesn’t know anything about firing a furnace, or letting the air out of the radiator every so often. It’s going to be a lot of extra work for her, too. We were just wondering who will carry the ashes out? Pop isn’t living around here anymore & Mike doesn’t come up here so much anymore, either. There are so many things to think about – I’ll let you know what we decide, honey.
Gee, I hope I can get some gas stamps. It would be swell if Bea could go with me to the Dr. Is the Navy Hospital very far from Albany? It’s sure nice Bea & Vic have their car out there. Did you see Bea or Vic lately, honey?
Well, sweetheart, I guess that’s it for now. I miss you so much, honey. Gee, I wish you could be here when Helen comes up. All the fun will be missing for me, even with them here, – without you! I love you, Frank, more than I could ever say! I’ll be so glad when we are together again! I’m sure it won’t be long now. Please take good care of yourself, honey, & God be with you always.
All our love & kisses,
XXX Jean & Butch XXXX
They are really fixing the store up downstairs. They papered yesterday – & I think Pop put a bath-tub in & had the toilet moved upstairs. The people are going to live in the back. I don’t know much about it but I guess Helen or Mom will tell you more.
Bye again, darling.
Jean & Butch
(It’s the Browns turn to win tomorrow!) Hope you can listen to the game, honey.
