Dear Josie and Mike
From Mary and George
Just to let you know our news -
I know you’ll want to know:
We’re off to join a cruise ship now
And I’ll post this as we go.
I had a dreadful cold in March
Which lasted until June,
But then we bought a lovely rug
For our new dining room.
Our clever son came top at school,
Of course with help from us.
Jim has sold our little car,
But now we have a bus.
Our dog died from a heart attack
And our cat was sprayed for fleas.
My back is getting better now
But I’ve trouble with my knees.
I think that this is all my news,
But I’ll write again next year.
It’s always nice to talk to you.
Good friends are very dear.
