Dearest LeRoy + Janet:
Well I think its time for some one to [?] down and write, so here goes, Easter was here and gone so it’s a long time not to hear from you, and Janet did you get your Birthday gift?, I waited over two weeks ago, so if you didn’t get it let me know, altho[ugh] I guess there isn’t much I can do about it, as for once I didn’t insure it, any way I hope it got there and you can use it, even the basketball player to stand around and catch dust.
I have been so busy its not funny, to-day I just finished cleaning the front porch, so there is no more winter dust out there. I also washed 24 windows on both sides, so that’s it for the week, Friday and Sat. I go over to church to work, the [?] is having a rummage sale Sat, to try to raise some money, we are almost broke, I mean the [?].
I looked in the May Playboy for your work, but there wasn’t any so I didn’t get I, let me know when you have some thing in, I looked at Playboy after dark on T.V last week, but didn’t care much for Hefner’s program that night, he himself looks good, I like his longer hair. /
so we’ll see what he has on tomorrow night thats Thursday.
And our twins won to-day a tuff game 7 to 6 for the twins, so far so good for them, hope they keep it up.
Want to write Earl yet, no guess I’ll run along on this one, Earl called me Easter morning and I didn’t hear from him since but I guess its my turn to write him then, don’t you think?
We are all so busy in our own way, and time goes by so fast, maybe thats [an] excuse when we don’t write, but I think and pray for you every day.
God bless and guide you in all your doings.
Love to both of you,
Mother.
We learn [too] late how small we are how little we know.
