Goes Back, b'y   Letter to Garge

Author: UpAlong

Dearest Garge,

I 'm writing this slow 'cause I know you can't read fast.

We don't live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles of your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so they wouldn't have to change their address.

This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I 'm not sure it works so well , though. Last week I put a load in and pulled the chain. We haven't seen them since.

The weather isn't bad here. It only rained twice last week. The first time for three days and the second for four.

About that coat you wanted me to send; your Uncle Bob said it would be too heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.

Henry locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because it took him two hours to get me and your father out.

Your sister had a baby this morning. We haven't found out what it is yet, so I don't know if you are an aunt or an uncle. The baby looks just like your brother.

Your Uncle Ray Fell into a Screech vat last week. Some men tried to Pull him out, but he fought them off and drown. We had him cremated. He burned for three days.

Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pickup truck. Craig was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your two friends were in the back. They drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down.

There isn't much more news at this time. Nothing much out of the normal has happened.

Your Favorite Aunt,
Mom

PS: I was going to put in some money for you but I had already seal the envelope.
