December 27, 1964 Safe, Sound and Glazed with Ice

Dear Mother & Daddy,

"We're all home and safe & sound, before 3:00.  There was almost no traffic until Springfield.  Then it began to thicken but the State Police were out in force and people were being careful.

Things are glazed with ice here but the roads were all clear.

We really enjoyed being home and hope neither of you are too tired."

                  Lots of love,


NOTE:  Happy New Year!  See you in 1965!  I'm taking a few days off and then for a few weeks I am going to post every other day instead of daily so that I can update some earlier posts and get organized for the next few years!  See you back soon!


  1. Another nice Christmas posting, were you really still up at 3:00AM?!!
    Loved the Charley Brown sequrnce.

  2. Thanks for the thoughtful comments and heavens no, I"m not up at 3! I schedule the letters to automatically post at 3:00 a.m. so my West Coast readers can read them before work:-)
