I wanted to let you know that I have received your letter and sure got quite a kick out of it, especially the part about naming that dog. If you’ve given him that name, you ought to get some stripes for him.
I also want to tell you that I sent you a little present in the mail today. I’m not going to tell you what it is so it will be a big surprise when you receive it.
We have been having some pretty warm weather around here lately, but I don’t think it gets quite as hot as it does back home sometimes.
I have a little radio in our room here now, but it doesn’t work. I have to take it out and get it fixed this week.
This afternoon I did my washing. Can you imagine me doing that? You should see me – wow! Now I must stop and go to eat supper.
