February 25, 1959 Letter Herman Shepard to His Parents

Worthington Ohio
Feb. 25, 1959

Dear Dick, Dad & Edw, [is this Dick’s brother?]

Just a line to let you know we arrived
home safe and sound. It was 1083
miles from you house to Lucilles in
Gahanna [Ohio]. We drove until 10:10 PM
Monday and covered 679 miles then
started out again at 6AM from
Yadkinville N.C. and drove the rest of
the way home arriving at Lucilles at
4:50 PM We didn’t have a bit of
trouble and the weather was all good
except on the W Va turnpike where we
had a light snow. The temperature
here this morning was 25 degrees.

We found everything here O.K.
so all I got to do now is get on the
ball and get back to work, which
shouldn’t be to bad after a nice
vacation like we had. Lucille
said that was the first real
vacation she had ever had, one
that she could remember for ever,
and we all want to thank you

[page 2]
for making it possible.

We left Ralph a bag of grape-
fruit and some oranges. of course
they wanted to know all about
you and dad and how things
were in Safety Harbor. We ate
supper at Lucilles and then
went up to Mom & Pop Krings
where we had to give them all
the news and we got home
about 11 P.M. Ralph and the
boys got along O.K. so Lucille
felt relieved about them.

I called Dick Sheridan to
night and he says every
thing at the shop is O.K. so I
suppose I still got a job.
“darn it”.

Well I’ll sign off for
now as I don’t know any
other news to write.
Love to all
Ruth & H.O.
