A Letter From Aunt Mom

Letter From Aunt Mom 1
Dear Billy Bob Ray,

I’m writing this slow because I know you can’t read fast.

We don’t live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles of your home, so we moved.

I won’t be able to send you the address because the last West Virginia 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. I’m not sure about it. I 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 me 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.

Big Boy locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because it took him two hours to get me and your father 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. Here is a photo taken at her wedding last week.

Letter From Aunt Mom 2

Uncle Bobby Ray fell into a whiskey vat last week. The Wilson boys across the creek tried to pull him out but he fought them off and drowned. We had him cremated, he burned for three days.

Letter From Aunt Mom 3

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 Aunt,

Mom
