Roberta keeps the letters arriving in Grandma's mailbox. Transcription follows.
I just read in the paper how COLD it is in Ohio! Below freezing! Hope you are warm enough – no wonder the Hortons went back to Florida! Aunt Mary is like me – she gets COLD! I just got my ticket to come to Ohio in November. I arrive on Friday the 13th in about 3 weeks! Do you think it will warm up by then? Can I borrow your winter coat – unless you need it.
Sid leaves Tuesday for his trip back to South Bend, Indiana. That is where he lived and worked for 23 years! South Bend is about 2 hours from Chicago. It was the home of Studebaker automobiles. Do you remember those cars? South Bend is also the home of Notre Dame – the Catholic University.
Sid's youngest daughter and her family still live in South Bend. Judy – who you met in Arizona – you might remember what a good loud voice she has – typical for a school teacher – Judy teaches 6th grade. Mrs. Everett Penn – Mary Etta Penn was my 6th grade teacher. I'll never forget how I had the same 3rd grade teacher that Dad had – Martha Woodmansee.
Speaking of school I've been busy with my 2 classes. The reading is the hardest part – between reading slow and have a hard time remembering what I read! Sid is a BIG help – he is my official typist – helps so much!
We had pizza tonight for supper – do you think that is on my diet? With Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up should I wait until January to start my diet?
I hope you and Sadie are both doing very well. If you want a cat I bet Sadie could get you one.
Sid will be in Indiana 10 days – when he got out the suitcase the cats got upset.
Hope you are eating/drinking enough – all the vitamins and minerals you need!
Much love, Roberta
