Mother's letters of late have been so depressing, but I did get a laugh from this week's effort. The poor mouse. Normally in Mother's handbag would be a selection of biscuits, barley sugar, Minties and a banana. I was looking in the letter for a sentence, 'don't worry about a Mother's Day present. I need the money, so if you could spare ten dollars, that will be nice'. We'll probably give her $100.
