There are two ways to look at this war. The hopeful one is, as these girls speculate, that it’s almost over. But the other one – and far more scary – is that Germany is pretending to withdraw and lulling us to sleep so it can roar back twice as strong. Whatever the outcome, Daddy has his orders so we’re on our way to Denver. We’re staying tonight in a tourist home in Eaton, Ohio run by four spinster ladies by the name of Schwartztrau. Mommy says they don’t seem to have ever seen a baby and stared at me a lot.
