Christmas Letter
December, 19xx
[This one is addressed to John only (Rose must have passed away.]

Did you know that in German "Hirsch" means "deer"?  So now just for fun that is how I sign my name.  Hope you have been well.  We all are and everyone is working.  They have made Bluemound Rd a 5 lane highway this summer.  It sure has been dusty and noisey.  They also lowered the highway so that now when I stand in the yard I can only see the tops of the small cars as they go by.  They call it progress, I call it destruction or am I getting old and crochety?  

Have a wonderful Christmas Season with your family.

God Bless You!!
