Dear Mom + Dad
Well here goes again, every night for the last week I’ve wrote. I’ve been getting lots of mail lately, I got one from you and one from Marg to-day. I’m glad Ray’s home and I bet he’s glad he can get back to school.
Well I get a weekend this week and I don’t know what to do except go to Earl’s for supper on Sunday.
Well I’m getting along swell except my boy friend he got a letter from his girlfriend saying she was through with him and was engaged to another guy. I feel sorry for him, he’s going around with a long face now.
I just got a haircut, the first since I left Brampton and does it ever feel funny. I hope you and Marg keep sending me lots of mail because it helps keep up my morale.
We have got a nice lunch of BDR’s just like the ones at Brampton.
It seems funny calling Earl by his first name when everybody else says sir.
Well I can’t think of anything else to say except keep writing lots of letters.
Lots of love
The East End Kid
