I Miss You !!
Write soon honey
All My Love XOX
Yo te amo
Darling Mark –
I got your sweet letter today & the pictures. Honey that is some double chin. Putting on more weight?
Honey – I got the pen today. Darling it’s a honey! I won’t have any excuses for not writing now huh? You couldn’t have gotten me anything else honey – that I could have used as much as this. I didn’t know you could still buy them. I wish I was there to give you a thousand kisses for it. Double benefit!
We didn’t do much today. My legs are still so sore I can hardly walk.
I’m on K.P. tomorrow – they finally caught up with me! Its about the best go around here now tho.
We have another inspection tomorrow of equipment, clothing & vehicles.
I told you I got two letters from Cec didn’t I! It sure was good hearing from him.
I’ve got so much mail the last two days I wonder when I’ll catch up. I’m getting letters that were sent to my old outfit – mailed last Nov.
Well honey I’d better close for tonight & get some of this stuff ready for tomorrow. I miss you more every day honey.
Goodnite now. Write soon.
X O X All My Love Johnny X O X
