That batman of mine as you can see his a swell servant. When ever I return from a hard days work he always has a nice cold bottle of real english beer, and the slippers ready. He had these two photos enlarged, and asked me to send them to you. In looking at these you’ll surely think I am on a picnic out here, but change your mind, the fourth of July fireworks are tough but so are we.
Leaving for London & Scotland soon for a rest, after stopping at a hospital for repairs.
Love to you all
