Dear Miss Thorsen,

I hope you don’t find me too forward in writing to you out of the blue.

In my defense, I asked Harley John for his stamp of approval and he gladly gave it. He even hinted that you might not be entirely opposed to receiving a word or two from me, so here goes.

Meeting you has been one of the best things that’s happened to me in a long while, and I don’t write that because of where we are and what’s going on around on us. Truly, it was a happy day when our paths crossed, for however brief a time.

Likely you think I’m nearer to a wooden post or even a scarecrow for all the lively action I mustered on our first encounter. It’s entirely possible you think me a dunce. If that’s the case and you aren’t keen to hear from me, just let Harley John know and I’ll take your preference to heart.

However, on the slight chance you weren’t entirely put off by my lack of fascinating conversation and wit, I’d sure like to try to make a better impression next time.

At any rate, I hope this finds you well and safe, and things going just dandy there. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate the work that you do. All of us do. We’d be paddling without oars if you girls hadn’t stepped up to take on the tough task of running the switchboards. It makes my poor little head ache to think of the way you handle all the calls coming in from everywhere, and do it in both French and English. Impressive!

Harley John has told me a little about you, but I’d like to learn from you, Miss Thorsen. What did you enjoy most about growing up at Dogwood Corners? What was the hardest thing for you? What is your favorite flower? Or color? Or song?

If you want to know about me, Harley John can fill both of your ears with the story of my life. After spending the past year listening to me talk about the nut farm my family owns, my gaggle of sisters, and growing up there, he knows pert near as much about me as I do!

I won’t take up more of your time, Miss Thorsen.

Be safe and be well, and know if you choose to reply, it would make this soldier’s day.

Respectfully and sincerely,

Private Friday Fitzpatrick
