Roberta writes a six page letter, the first page of which is scanned below. Transcription of entire letter follows.
Dear Mom and Dad,
Thanks for your letter yesterday – Yes! I've talked to Aunt Mary and she is quite excited (anxious!) as to the upcoming trip.
In the meantime quite busy here - between day to day goings, cultural events - this week the play "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" - residents should not have any trouble hearing it - with all the yelling and screaming in it! Last week Symphony with classical guitar - didn't excite me much!
Next Monday one of our famous SV [Senior Village] fashion shows! We are pushing to get lots of coverage!
Could you please put in 2 hear/ear covers I left in Ohio - 1 new 1 red/white, 1 for me, 1 for Aunt Mary
Have you heard of movie - Fried Green Tomatoes - we are going to see it tonight. Sid has been busy getting out NARFE newsletter - Taxes next! Glad I'll be gone for that!
We did go to Church Change Conference - a lot of people went to a lot of work! Served a great lunch for $3.00. Where people paid most attention was on preacher's salary - $71,000 for Senior Pastor with 4 Associates getting $45-50,000 each.
So far we have mailed out 8 brochures - mostly just giving them to prospects that drop by or heard of SV by word of mouth. 1000 brochures may last a long time. Tho I'm to work a couple of Senior Citizens/Community fairs. See you all soon! Love, Roberta, et al
Am mailing pkg to you all for Sadie.
To Grandma: I better get back to work - the phone is ringing and I have 2 ladies not getting along!
Do hope you feel like drinking - be it water, juice or coffee or coke!
Would you like Sid or the cats to come with me in April? Perhaps I could get someone to work for me so Sid could come.
DRINK GRANDMA, it's so important!
Much love, Roberta & Sid and of course Mozart and Beethoven
If Sid comes to Ohio I'll also have to get someone to take care of the CATS.
