Aunt Edna part 2

Well Howdy,

Aunt Edna and the kids are doing fine, Uncle Arthur made such a hit in the choir that he goes to practice 3 times a week. We haven't had the heart to tell Aunt Edna That choir practice is only on Wednesday nights.

Milly and the seven kids are going to marry Heck Ramsey and his trailer. Her ex, Bobby-Joe, took it in stride; he told Billy McCoy that her jeans didn't fit, anyway.

Hal and the boys are still up to Sauder Crick. Mrs. Adele still sends him fifty dollars care of General Delivery up in Sauderville. She says he'll probably come home if he runs out of money.

Cousin Bill is back in school, but he got in to a big fight with his algebra teacher. Seems Miss Adams was explaining that "Pie are square." and Bill took issue with that hollering that "any damn fool knows pie are round, cornbread are square". Miss Adams sent him to the principal.

Guess that's about it for now.

Aunt Edna part 1

Well Howdy,

Uncle Arthur is now singing in the church choir ever since Edna found him in the choir loft with the new soprano.

Milly and the seven kids moved to Heck Ramsey's trailer, across the park from the old one. As she put it, "they all look like him anyway." Her husband Bobby-Joe says that now the divorce is final he may have a chance to get in her jeans, as she left a couple of pair behind.

Cousin Jeb growed a foot, and Aunt Matilda says it's a pity it didn't grow where he lost the one in the sawmill accident.

Hal and the boys ran up to Sauder Crick a week Tuesday, and ain't been heard from since. Mrs. Adele says that he'll be back oncet he runs out of cash money and promptly sent him fifty dollars care of General Delivery up in Sauderville.

Cousin Bill done dropped out of school but Aunt Ethel says he's OK as he landed in the bushes and they broke his fall. Her husband Will, has taken to wearing girly underwear, since she found bra and panties in the glove box of his pickup.
