Dear Folks,

I forgot to write a letter again this morning. We were busy building an awning outside our door. We now have a front porch. I'll have to get some pictures of it.

Yesterday I got the package of potato chips. I got two letters this morning but no pretzels. Should get them tomorrow. Not much else happening. We worked last night till about 9:30. But I had the day off today and probably tomorrow too.

I've been munching on chips all day. At the rate I'm going I'll be out of chips by the time the pretzels get here. I laid down the law though, ain't nobody eating potato chips and pretzels but me.

I'm hoping to get some orders this week. Can't be short officially till I get orders saying so.
