I MISS YOU!
LOVE X O X
Hello Sweetheart: -
12:30. I was called out suddenly. But I’m back again mad as hell! I’ve just been placed on guard for tonite. OH Damn. I feel like tearing this place apart! I won’t be able to come in this week-end sweetheart! I guess this would be the last chance I’d get to see you again. OH honey am I blue. I was counting so much on seeing you again. Mercy!!!
So you finally went horseback riding eh? How’s your fannie feel?
Honey – I’ve got to shower & get ready for guard mount now so I’d better close & get agoin’. I’ll try & call you tonite honey. If I can pay a guy to take my guard tonite I’ll give him his own price.
Please answer soon honey. I miss you an awful lot & always thinking of you. Bye now.
XOX All My Love
P.S. Someone borrowed my pen & forgot to return – so pencil.
