The stunning picture of Churchill4 facing the Channel5 has been such a joy to me! I have mounted it and keep it in my bedroom. I've noticed before that it is only his back that is sixty-five years old; his front is a husky fifty. Our backs do give us away!! I was in bed so long6 in March and April that I find it very hard to stand with my shoulders back. I am gradually getting better all the time, though I do not pick up the ten pounds I lost. Foreseeing rubber shortage, I "hoarded" corsets after Pearl Harbor. Yesterday I went to the shop carrying four pair to have them taken in one inch on each side!My dear love to you all Willie Mr. R.
