keepin' grandma in the dark

Oh that Louise...






Eagle River, Wisconsin
Aug. 16, 1938

Dear Cousin,
Don't know whether or not you have heard that I am vacationing in northern Wis. so will drop you a line. Came a week ago Sunday with Stiles from Dav(enport). Last week we were near a lake about 18 mi so. of Superior. Sunday we bathed in Lake Sup. This week we are near a lake about 24 mi. north of Rhinelander. We plan to start home early Sun. a.m. It has been quite cool up here. Have been sleeping under blankets and have had fire every a.m. and evening. How is Iowa weather? If Grandma doesn't know I'm up here, better not tell her until I get home. With love, Louise. The scenery is beautiful. Especially the moonlight on the water.

Sounds like Grandma would not approve of her and this "Stiles" rogue from Davenport!

or...Grandma expects to know the where abouts of the kids all the time....

or, if Grandma is like my MIL, who has parkinsons related demensia, it would confuse her...

Love it. Maybe they were skinny-dipping!!!

grandma has probably kept her in the dark about some of grandma's activities over the years too -:)
