Dear Dick & Dad:
Summer is on its last legs now. About another month and the weather will start to be cool.
It wont be too long until you folks start west. I know you will like the winter here in California.
Kenny and I went deer hunting last week end. When
opening day broke, I was sitting in one side of a tree on a ridge, and Kenny was on the other side. Kenny saw the dear and tryed to show him to me. It took several minutes & when I saw it was a buck I asked him to shoot it. Kenny was a little shaky and asked me to do it. We are eating venison now. I hope to take K W out again next week and let him get one.
Havent seen Elsa lately. I was going to go fishing with him this summer but didn’t seem to make it. Perhaps we can before too long
Jean & Jenny haven’t been over for several months. We will have them all over when you get here.
Dont use up all your energy Dad. We have a walnut plantation that has to be harvested this fall.
Have you had any luck on selling the place yet?
What do you think of the Election? there seems to be more interest than in any since 1932. Its pretty divided out here. You want to be sure to get here before the election & football. We have TV!! Well Ill close. Take care of yourself and let me know when you are coming.
