Hi! We've been busy, busy, busy as I imagine you have been too. There is an unending amount of things that we need to take care of before we leave Michigan. Plus we went to visit Bruce and Beth in Joliet over the weekend (we combined business with pleasure as we also had to go to the Univ. of Illinois for some library research on New Zealand libraries) While in Joliet we discovered there was to be a Grateful Dead (that's a rock group) concert at the International Aphitheatr [sic] on Monday night so we stayed over for that and didn't get home until 3:30 A.M. Back to the library, they have a new one which is really something -- 7 floors all filled with stacks and reading areas. You have to have an I.D. to get on any floor other than the 1st. We were able to get day passes with our W.M.U. I.D.'s.

Another thing we need some info on is leases. We are going to have to rent this house (it can't be sold until X's mother dies) and we would like to have whoever rents it sign a lease.

She has offered us her assistance in finding a suitable place for us to reside at least temporarily in Sanford. We have to be somewhat picky in that we would like a place where we could have Kuman [Irish Setter], a garden and an extra bedroom for X's Mom. We're going to rent a U-Haul to get our stuff out there.
I am not using this because we are out of all other
Bruce and Beth are getting married on March 31. They are just having their immediate families. They have been going together (on and off) for 9 1/2 years so it isn't much of a surprise to their families.
When are you going to go to Florida
Love, Catherine & X
