Thought I would catch
you up on your home
town, since you have not
been around. Maryann got
a cute new pup. Last week
Jimmy J. got locked up.
Your old friend, Jill, had baby six!
Tommy’s dog is covered in tick
bites, and remember your teacher,
Miss Sykes? She married the preacher.
Hope you make it home this year
for Christmas. Remember we love you, dear.
