Hello darling;

Well here it is Thursday afternoon dear and as yet I have not had any mail since last Saturday. I think that the mail is being held up though because the weather has not been very good lately but I’ve certainly been looking forward to a letter very much though.
I hope that you are feeling OK dear and I am so thankful that you went to the doctor on Saturday like you said you would but I don’t think you would lose your nerve and that is why I was so anxious to receive your letter dear and now my heart is so full as I now know that you are doing OK and that we have so much to look forward to.
Well dear I have not done very much at all since I last wrote you. I’m on duty watch this week and can’t get off the station anyways. I’ve been to a couple of shows this week but I’ve really been taking things easy for my Christmas and New Years leave and darling you cannot be looking forward to it any more than I am because after seeing those lovely pictures that you finally sent down, I want to get home more than ever and they were certainly lovely pictures. I have them pinned up in my locker dear and I see you first thing in the morning and the last thing at night and it certainly keeps my morale up to know that I’ve got such a sweet lovable and nice looking wife waiting at home for me and darling I love you more than anything else in this world so please take real good care of yourself.
Well Bob Hobbs got a posting overseas on Tuesday and he is on his embarkation leave now so he should be pretty close to home right now. He is tickled pink, but you don’t have to worry about me darling because he put in for an overseas posting about 8 months ago and they are the only ones who are getting them.
We have not heard anymore as yet on whether we are going to get Christmas or New Years leave but you can count on me getting home anyway dear for a couple of days at least because I still have those 4 days of annual leave left, but I think we will get 5 days myself.
I don’t know what to do about those underwear for your Pop. I can’t get a box for them on the station and I can’t get off the station to get one so I’m really stuck this week anyway. Norm took some pictures the other day but he sent them home to be developed so when they come back I’ll try and get some home to you darling.
I have not had a letter from my folks for over a week or so, so tell them to start cracking at it eh?!
I hope that Beverley and your Mom and Pop are all fine and tell your Pop that I wouldn’t mind one of his cocktails around Christmas or New Years so he has better get in shape with a real good one.
What are we going to do about Christmas gifts and cards dear? I think that if you think you are able for it you could buy the gifts dear. I can buy Air Force Cards down here and I could send them to anybody that you wish and if you think it would be alright I could say they are from us. I’ll wait until I hear from you dear so let me know what you think.
Gee it will be fun when this is over and we are together again and we have a Christmas tree for our babies dear. I could dress up like Santa Claus, no kidding though darling I have an awful lot of good times to make up to you dear and I am going to dedicate the rest of my life to make you the happiest little wife and mother in this world and so honey loving you more than I could ever put down on paper.
Your very loving husband,
