Hello Darling;

Well here it is Sunday afternoon and about time that I dropped my little wife a few lines and let you know what I am OK and what has been going around here.
I was very sorry to hear about my uncle, but as we expecting it, it was not as much of a shock. I am sorry that I could not make it to the funeral but they are not very happy affairs anyhow. I was not able to get the time off as it was not an immediate parent that passed away. I guess my Aunt will move in with Mom and Pop now. I am very glad about that part of this anyways. She will at least have someone around that she can grieve with.
Well dear I went to the hospital yesterday and they gave me some white powder to take and I really feel like my old self once again. I wonder what they gave me, but it took this darn flu away so I am not going to question the likes of the doctor.
Well things are about the same here. I was in bed by 10PM last night and tonight I will be working so I will not be doing very much.
I do not know whether I will be getting my 48 hour leave for Saturday and Sunday or Sunday or Monday so do not count on me arriving Friday afternoon, but I will be getting hoe for sure either Friday or Saturday or maybe even Sunday.
Dear, if you are downtown this week go in and get me a $2.00 bottle of that stull will you please?
You know Bert McKee, well he has been posted back to Moncton and from there he is liable to be posted anywhere on the east coast. The certainly do not last long on this station do they? I am still hoping and praying that I do not have to go overseas like the rest of my fellow Airmen from Lachine but we are still playing the waiting game.
Well dear I had a lovely time on my leave during the holidays but as usual all good things have to come to an end. The party for was lovely and it was nice to see all the family and friends. It was a shame that Marg was not able to come over with Ted but I guess that they wanted to have their very own Christmas without anybody else. We certainly have a lovely little girl dear and you know how proud I am of her. She is just like her mother, but not quite as cute. If I am hoe Monday and it is mild I think it would be a good idea to take “Toots” to the doctor for her whooping cough shot.
Well dear that is about all for now but I will be seeing you on the weekend and so until then,
All my love,
