Letter From Home

Well, it has been kind of a slow week around here - not much going on except the weather. That makes for some boring posts. Since I started my blog I don't hear from any of my family as they don't call me anymore . They usually just read it to keep up with my comin's and goin's.

However, I did receive a letter from them last week and I did want to share it with you.

Hillbilly Letter From Home

Our Dearest Sister,
We are writing this slow because we know you can't read fast.

We don't live where we did when you were home. We read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles of your home, so we moved. We 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. We are not sure about it. We put a load of clothes 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 time for four days.

About that coat you wanted us to send; your Uncle Billy 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.

Bubba locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because it took him two hours to get us and your brother out.

Your sister had a baby this morning, but I haven't found out what it is yet so I don't know if you are an aunt or uncle.

Uncle Bobby Ray fell into a whiskey vat last week. Some men tried to pull him out but he fought them off and drowned. We had him cremated, he burned for three days.

Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pickup truck. Butch was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other 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 Sisters,
Anniebell, Flossifay, Fannymae and Juniejoe

I guess some news is better than no news. Keep those cards and letters comin' I love to get mail and a phone call would be nice once in awhile.

That's it for today

Oh my goodness, Jenny. When I was a little girl my grandparents took me to meet some of those folks up in the hills and hollers of Kentucky. They called them my RELATIVES! Maybe we are related.......Debbie
