Hello Darling;

Well here it is Saturday night dear and Norm and I have just returned from doing a little bowling and a Sundae.
I remember in your last letter that you mentioned that you were starting to feel tired at night dear, now don’t over do yourself dear because it isn’t worth it and you might do yourself some harm. So don’t you work overtime if you can help it dear and please take real good care of yourself.
Well let me see what is new, not very much I’m afraid dear. Wednesday night I went to the station show and Thursday night they had the Uncle Mel’s troupe here and they were very good. That girl you used to work with was in it wearing a grass skirt, she certainly could shake it, but no better than you can dear when you want to. Friday night I saw ” Stage Door Canteen” at the station show and if you have not seen it you should dear it really is a swell picture and well worth seeing. I don’t think I’ll be doing anything tonight but play cards. We play poker in the barracks and I think that I’m up about $1.50.
Well dear I haven’t heard any more about moving so I think that it might have fallen through so I might be home for New Years after all so don’t feel too badly about it until you hear definitely from me.
I had a letter from my Mother and Pop yesterday and got all the local news, by the way tell my Mom to “give me” the addresses of all those people I’m to send cards to.
Well dear just 4 more months to go darling and I’ll be the happiest pop in the world. I’ve got the most darling wife in the world and I know I’ll have the cutest and sweetest little daughter in the world soon. Isn’t it wonderful dear our love for one another, we just seem to be made for one another and we have so much to look forward to when the war is over. In the meantime we will just have to make the best of it and I’m so glad to know that you will have something to take your time when our baby is born.
I am very anxious to hear what the doctor thought of you dear and be sure and do what he tells you and get lots of rest dear. There I go again telling you what and what not to do.
Mom says that my Aunt is really busy doing a lot of knitting, we shouldn’t have to get very much clothing, won’t it be fun dressing little Doreen together dear and I think we will take her in bed with us at 6 o’clock in the morning like the Davis’ used to do.
I forgot to tell you dear that one of the twins, you know the one that used to go around with the small girl, well she is expecting but she is only 3 months gone so it will ben a while yet.
It is really mild around here right now. Some of the boys are going around without any coats on. I guess it is pretty cold back home though.
Well dear I think that is about all for now and I’ll just close by saying I love you very much from the bottom of my heart and hoping to see you very soon honey.
Your loving husband,
