My darlings, Son & Daughter,

It isn't too bad, but I still hate bothering you & wouldn't but unfortunately it comes the same time as my quarterly Insurance & until I get my bank statement I'm a bit wary. I'm very grateful anyway

It's dark now at 4.30 pm & very dreary today. Kit died during the night & Peggy thinks Mercy won't be far behind. Kit & she were great friends & Mercy took to her bed 2 wks ago. Well Kit was 96 & Mercy 93, so what! We have another new resident with elephantine legs & very giggly

I am thinking of you both constantly & wondering how you are coping without furniture etc.. I'm using both sides of paper to lessen the weight & will get Lynn to post this on Thursday. Did Xlong sell your car? Is your cold better John? Tess rang me on Sunday & I also had Robert & Janet & the 3 children  It was nice to see them but very tiring  The two boys teased the little girl who is a little darling, but I was glad when they went! Excuse scribble I find it a bit difficult  Tess said to tell you she's going to see La Boheme with Jenny[?]  Loads of love. Write or call soon  you know how anxious I get. As always
