I have been meaning to read all of my grandmother's letters for ages, and with things so quiet this week at work (Students on Spring Break) I thought I would bring a few in with me. I am sure you will agree that I HAD to share some of my findings with you absolutely immediately. (And everyone who comes into the helpdesk says "Oooooh! Can I see?") I wish I could print every letter in it's entirety... but I will definitely scan the lot.
..." It is snowing like blazes so we may not get out at all today!
"...The old landlord at the Harrington arms is such a funny chap. He told us there was a nuddist colony just over the way! And leaning to Parkinson said 'If you look a likely lad maybe you would be interested now.' So you see, he evidently thought I looked quite settled down.
"... I will find a 'Bookie' this evening and place the bets for the National. Also for Nurse. Hope your stars foretell the truth! Darling Princess that is all my news I am afraid, only that I love you and love you and love you. I won't join the nudists, it's much too cold! God bless you my own sweet darling, a great big kiss and a very special snuglet. It would be a nice day for snuglets with the cold rain!"
"...All my love dearest darling, your very own Pat."
The thought of the 'nuddist' colony in the snow cracked me up... and I love the stars foretelling the winner for my witchy grandmother!
