No letter again today but I guess you wrote Mon. & it takes, at least, 3 days to get mail from Calif. I know that’s why I haven’t heard from you. But, Frank, you ought to have sent me a wire or night letter just to let us all know you are Ok. We don’t know where Albany is – it may be hundreds of miles away from the explosion & then again it might be pretty close! Until we hear from you, you know how worried we will be. Maybe you couldn’t get to a place to send a wire but you could have sent an Air Mail letter. I sure better hear from you tomorrow, honey! A package with gum & 2 rolls of film came today, darling! And thank you so much for it! We can’t even get those kind anymore. I can really use the film, too. It was sure sweet of you to send it. I appreciate it a lot, honey!
When I came home from work, I walked over to our house to see if I had any mail & I saw Pop standing by the Drug store with Bobby. He waved & tipped his hat. I didn’t get a chance to tell him yet he’s going to be Grandpa again – maybe Mom told him – but I doubt it. I’m going to tell him & Grandpa whether they think I’m crazy or not. Ha.
Honey, I saw Kohrman in the D. store Sunday & he said he is going to be a free man sometime this week! I guess Dot really went thru with the divorce! I feel so sorry for both of them. Kohrman seemed so blue. I think Dot is crazy to do it! That’s something that will never happen to us, isn’t it, honey? We’ll love each other & be so happy the rest of our lives!
I’ve been thinking of Larry & Louise so much lately, as soon as I quit work, would like to see them. I want to talk about being Godmother for the new baby & how we are going to work it with you gone – where & when it will be – etc. Also tell them about our baby & where you are now. I don’t have any way of getting out there, tho. Kohrmann offered to take me some Sunday aft. He says he goes out there about twice a month. I tho’t it was sure nice of him but didn’t know what you would think? Of course, I wouldn’t stay late – I would come home about 5 or 5:30. It’s the only way I have of seeing them. Of course, I know Larry would pick me up after work sometime but then, how would I get home? Oh well, it isn’t important but I would like to see them before the baby is born.
I think Dan told Larry about the baby tho, – already. He said he met Larry on the elevator at work & Larry asked him if he got moved Ok & if he ever heard from you. He told Larry you were going to Calif. & then told him we were expecting a baby! Larry sure acted glad & told Dan he bet we were both happy! You know, Frank, Larry made that retreat last spring for a baby for them & he told you he also made it for you – so his prayers probably helped us too. I want to tell him that & thank him.
Well, honey, it’s getting late & we are all going to the Armo tonite. I’ll write more to this later. I love you so! Bye for now.
Gee, I wish you were here so I could kiss you good-morning! I don’t think I’d let you go to work, tho, – I’d never let you go, honey! Won’t it be wonderful to together again?
Honey, I just have a few minutes this morning – it was too late to write anymore last nite. We got home about midnight. They are starting the show earlier but the pictures were pretty long.
Forgot to tell you. Frank Mascara is home from “boots” at Farragut. I saw him in his car as I walked over to Dot’s for supper. Wonder how he liked boot camp? (Vic said Frank is an E.M. 3/c! He got his rate before he went in. Boy, that sure beats everything, don’t it?)
Still haven’t found out about Hal Rick or where he is. Hope & pray he wasn’t in that terrible explosion!
Darling, I love you & miss you so much. Take good care of yourself & God be with you always! Hurry home to us!
All our love & kisses, Jean & Butch.
