I am starting a new project, or new in the sense that I actually started work on it. When my Mom passed away in May 1997 I became custodian of the letters she and my Dad exchanged during World War II. Many years ago I made a half-hearted attempt to create audiotaped transcriptions of the letters, but that came to nothing. I am starting again because the technology found in Google Docs allows me to read the letters aloud and have the contents go straight into a document. I will place the full text of the document here in The Althing blog, adding links and comments as appropriate and sharing to a Facebook timeline…either my own or I will create a new page.
This letters contain everything from the mundane to the slightly racy. Remember that they were written by two Wisconsin teenagers in the middle of a war, and cut them a little slack.
