Good Morning


How is my honey—Smiling and happy as usual I hope. I’m O.K. except for being sleepy—I managed somehow to get up at 7:30 this morning—wonder how that happened. I sometimes wonder what I’ll do if for year after year I have to get up at 5:00 or 6:00 A.M. That would be terrible.

I feel pretty proud of you (always do) but more so after you told me about your trip to the Dentist and having a couple of teeth pulled—I honestly thought it would “blow over”—Ha—I got fooled. It really takes a lot of guts “intestinal fortitude” to go to a place and have them

Our rainy season is slowly starting—It rains like hell every evening now and will soon be raining all the time—Wet isn’t it?

For now

Good Morning


I Love You

I’ll love you tomorrow also.
