Well let’s see… I am really looking forward to Spring this year because Father is building a barn so Penny can live with us again finally. So I’ll be able to ride her all I want! I am also looking forward to helping mother plant and tend to her spring garden. I am sorry about Sonja, ‘tis very odd that she should act the way she does! I wish the winter months would fly past because ‘tis very dreary staying inside all day stirring stews and sewing handkerchiefs. Pray tell me, how is everything and everyone downtown? I have not been down there for quite some time.
