RURAL BRYANT, SD, PRESENTS:
It's rough getting old [smiley face drawn].
Made a double batch of cookies today and we have a cookie and coffee at 9 a.m, and after a nap. [another smiley face] No wonder I put on weight.
Hope Ronald has a great time while on his trip.
I still write to Ruthie real often as it must be lonesome for her alone [after Tom was taken to glory]. So glad she has the pastor & wife as friends. You put the thought in me after Bob [Pearl Ginther's husband Bob who died in the plane crash in 1947 with Art Stadem] left you. We all neglected you, and you mentioned it to me so always wrote to M. Waldow [Marie] a lot too. So now I hear from Marie.
I see it's John's birthday, and hope you see him and Jody and___? next year. Also Gloria, they are much fun.
Cora writing, Hudson's wife Resa has real [canal tooth?] problems, so sent them $100 out of the Memorial gift Cora sent [sent Cora?]. He's draining his furlough money.
Calvin returns to Brazil in July so sent him some $. Carleen left in June.
Wayne was so much fun and hope he can come again real soon.
Guess this is it for now. Love ya, Be. Rh.H. says HI.
