Dearest Mother & Dad.

Hello, Folks, yes it is I again, and as usuall not very much in the line of interest “but whats the diff.  ah”. Today has been really nice, we have had the sun shine the whole day and that’s more sun than what we have had for the last week and we sure hope it keeps like this for sometime.

This afternoon, we went for a walk to the nearest village and happened to stumble onto a café where they had ice cream and boy did it ever taste good, so good that we had four dishes each. I guess they thought at the café that we were kind of making pigs of ourselves but then we couldn’t help that, “what Say.”

In my next letter I will send you a couple of Belgium francs, the money is much the same as the French but a different colour, something the same as our money and the American’s as far as colour goes, we took a german sign from a post and the word on it is (gasalarmgerat) I guess it means gas warning. Anyway that’s what we call our tent now, of course we change the name of it, as the change of scenery comes along.

Well Mother and Dad I guess this is all for once again, hope you both are in the best of health, take care of yourselves.

Bye now
Your Ever Loving Son
