1992 Roberta's letter to Grandma - March 22

Roberta writes a two page letter to Grandma, Gladys Hiestand Uible, in March 1992. She mentions her handwriting so I will refrain from making any comments about that. I'm sure Grandma was able to read the writing and even between the lines. Page one included below Transcription follows.

Dear Grandma,

I am very sorry to hear that you are not feeling very well – but hope by the time you get this you will be feeling much better – and wanting to eat and drink more!  I wish I could come and see you now but my ticket is not until just after Easter!  [April 19 in 1992]  Should I bring the CATS?

This is a copy of Joe's history [on the back of page 2 - see tomorrow's blog] that Sid typed for him.  I had forgotten he was born in Cincinnati.  The Hortons must have been living in Hillsboro at the time.

I remember that house they used to live in – in Hillsboro.  How the people that bought it painted it purple – or was it some other bright but ugly color?

Do tell Sadie and the folks Hi for me.  I just don't write too many letters these days.  You used to write such nice letters and your handwriting was so good!  My handwriting is so BAD – people say it is very hard to READ!  I must take after DAD – where did he get his hard-to-read handwriting from?

[Love, Roberta – We can assume there was a closing, but not in my possession . . . .]
