Yesterday Susie spent the day with us. We had a good spread of chicken and pork adobo chop suey, ham (homemade), rice and pickles. For desert we had canned apples and cream. The canned applies I had bought several months before the Japanese invasion. It sure didn’t look like wartime chow. Our thoughts were with you again, mother dear, and we spoke of you many times during the day (your birthday being yesterday).
