Marg was operated on for appendicitis last Monday 1 wk ago today Come out from under either O.K. haven’t heard from her since.
We are getting on fine with work
Got strawberries all about gathered had over 20 bu. It was a job to pick them
Corn over the 2nd time and it is looking fine.
Uncle Wills Paul & all were over Sunday they sure enjoyed strawberries
They are all well they asked so much about you.
