Dear God
I think the stapler is one of your greatest inventions!
Ruth M

Dear God
My name is Simon. That’s from the bible. I am eight and a half. We live across the street from the park. I have a dog name buster, I used to have a hamster but he got out and ran away. I am small for my age. My hobbies are swimming, bowling, my chemistry set, reading, coin collecting and tropical fish. Right now I have three kinds. Well I guess I said a Mouthful. Goodbye. Always a friend.
