    Dear Child,

    I am writing this slow because I know that you can't read fast.

    We don't live where we did when you left home.

    Your dad read in the paper that most accidents happen within 20 miles from your
    home so we moved.

    I won't be able to send you the address, as the last family that lived here
    took the
    house numbers when they left so that they wouldn't have to change their
    address.

    This place is real nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm not sure if it
    works too well
    though.

    Last week I put a load in, pulled the chain, and haven't seen them since.

    The weather isn't too bad here., it only rained twice last week, The first
    time it rained
    for three days and the second time for four days. The coat you wanted me to send
    you, your Uncle Steve said it would be a little too heavy to send in the mail with
    the
    buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets. We got another bill
    from
    the funeral home.

    They said if we don't make the last payment on Grandma's grave, up she
    comes. John
    locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were worried because it took him two
    hours
    to get me and Shelby 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're an aunt or an uncle. If the baby is a girl, your sister is
    going to name it
    after me, she's going to call it Mom.

    Uncle Pete fell in a whiskey vat last week. Some man tried to pull him out but he
    fought them off and drowned. We had him cremated and he burned for three days.

    Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pick-up truck. Ralph 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 has happened.

    PS, I was going to send you some money but the envelope was already sealed.
