SAT. - Feb. 27th  (Fellowship Class Beef dinner to serve 500 people)
Dear Family: Every time we do this dinner we ALL SAY: "THIS IS THE LAST TIME ! !" Since Ray and Helen Brown head it up and he said when he brought 2 ten lb roasts to bake, This is definitely the LAST, I think they really mean it. This class has deteriorated to the TOURIST CLASS (we had 96 in S.S. last Sunday, and everyone is in their late 70's and 80's.! ! ! Makes us one of the younger members. HA ! ! ! Report in to work around 3 o'clock after I go over to church proper and practice the hymns for Sunday with the organist . . . . . it is ('Camp meeting Sunday) and the Director wanted me to play the piano with (the organist . . . that should be a riot ! ! ! I've been doing more and more piano playing instead of LESS, which I've been striving for as the joins are acting up and it's a big pain in the neck . . . literally . . ha and now my joints in the thumb are feeling the pressure . . . so it goes ! ! !
Big NEWS around here is that Rob is "In Love" . . . . Cindy B..., from Brazil, Indiana. She teaches 1st grade at his school and I think the whole school has been trying to set them up since Sept. But Rob didn't get up nerve enough to ask her out until last week. I imagine he or they are the talk of the school by now. Mares, she is a Zeta from Indiana U.
Now a run-down of my last week . . . can't remember when I last wrote. I'm getting terrible . . . . I have to keep a close note-book with every move in it ! ! ! Did I mention that we went to Norton Art Gallery last week? Interesting display of "Table Tops" from ceramics to paper dispose-alls and good exhibit of photographs of West and North West in black and white and sculptor by Graham. Heard a Symphony form Bulgaria . . . neato . . . played Bridge on Sat. nite I played for Vespers Sunday nite then went to hear a guest harpist and baritone soloists (husband and wife) at Good Shepherd . . . Played for 1/2 hr of pop music for the VIA's (they sing) at the Finnish Nursing home . . . It's better than most I've been in. Got a perm on Tuesday; Went to last Mission Study on Wed. AM. . . G'Ma enjoyed going to that (get credit for the UMW). Thurs. AM was a guest at V.A.'s Johnson to her WPB MUSIC and Drama Club . . . . it was a fun time. Wore my velvet suit with the pants and white blouse. (It looks harp and I really like it ! ! !). Yesterday, we dropped everything and Dossetts and us went to the matinee of "On The Golden Pond" and as everyone says, OMIT the profanity and it's a beautiful picutre [sic]. The scenes in it from New Hampshire remind me of Cris's place!!! The music theme was intriguing too. But I don't see the point of all the cuss words. (Tho it didn't spoil it for me)) Got home about 3:45 and we played Bridge until 5:30 . . . went out to eat, came home and played Bridge until 10 o'clock. (My game gets worse instead of better . . . just don't play enough, or take it seriously I guess)
G'Ma is fine!!! Always this time of year she is getting to us and we go crazy ! ! ! HA ! ! ! But I try to keep my temper and not talk back . . . and that's hard for me. We're thankful tho that she stays well and her mind in ALERT ! ! ! She a MARVE after you take in the nursing homes.
Your Dad [Uncle Bill to us Uibles] has gone completely NUTTY over this GOLF GAME ! ! ! He doesn't want to do anything else . . . . He probably says the same thing about me with my music and church. At least we're doing our own thing. Right ? ? ?
Love, Mary & Bill
