Dear Mom, Dad, Serena, John, and Mary, [Roberta was on her way to Africa]
Hi! Thanks for the letters. John, I'll type a letter back to you soon. Things have been busy.
Bruce & Beth came to visit last weekend. We all went to Grand Valley State College near Grand Rapids to hear Cheech & Chong, a rock-comedian type show. Funny but also gross.
On Monday X's mother had an extreme regression so we stayed all night with her. X took her to his aunt's on Tuesday. I guess she's getting better & will come back after we get moved back out there.
X says if it isn't too late he would like one of the following two things for Christmas. They are both rated high in Consumer Reports:
Black & Decker Sander #7410 cost about $13
or Penney's Variable Speed Drill (Catalog #3052, Retail Model #4916C) about $19
Wednesday night there was a Christmas Dinner for faculty and staff of K.College, at Saga of course. I guess that completes my cycle at K.College. From serving banquets to being served. [X and I both worked for the K College library while attending graduate school at Western Michigan Univ.]
I didn't get the job at Upjohn. So yesterday we paid our $576 to WMU which should get us through to graduation in April.
Can you get a dentist appointment for me on
Sorry I don't have anything for your birthday, Mom. You'll have to wait about two weeks.
PS. X wants to make sure you don't feel obligated to buy him any of that stuff. He doesn't want it unless you can get the exact types or models which I have written down.
I went looking for boots tonight. I want a pair of over shoe type but can't find any.
I'm writing a paper on the U.N. so I can win $50 and a 6 week trip to Geneva! See you soon.
PSS We'll be moved by the 16th.
