The Life and Times of Cherry Ames - Part 8

Cherry_Ames_7

Dear Diary,

Well, it is now 1945 and I have mustered out of the Army and settled down in the South Pacific.  Rugby Hodges is my finance and we will be settling down in Tasmania as soon as his divorce from the ‘Aboriginal Princess’ is complete.  It looks like I will finally have that peace and quiet that I have longed for this past decade.    

I have had enough of the severed limbs and the paralyzed soldiers screaming for their mother when their morphine ran out.  From now on it will be scraped knees and slight fevers and the rest of the world passes us by.  

More later……
