Dear Mother & Dad,
Hi! Well, here I am finally sending you Wendy's school picture along with the pictures of while you were here and one from Christmas. We thought her school picture came out
I had a nice birthday, thank you for the card and the $$. I don't have anything specific in mind right now. We have been considering buying new lamps for the living room however, I'd rather spend your money on something more for myself. It look like we will be going to Bend on February 17th so I should have a chance to do some shopping. Gerry has been sub-poenaed (sp?) in the case of one of his former employees who had surgery
I am in a really hectic phase of the bookkeeping cycle [I'll skip the boring details of this paragraph but will add that the bookkeeping classes I took while in Maine, helped me do the Elks books, and both served as preparation for doing the accounting for Best West RV.]
Wendy is happy about quite a few things. I had promised her last weekend we would go to the A & W tonight for supper. She wanted to go there for my birthday dinner but we went elsewhere. (We should have gone to A&W though -- the place where we did go had a poor salad bar, they were all out of every seafood listed on their menu, the steak was tough, the baked potatoes were like rocks, the rolls were OK). Tomorrow night we are going to see Savannah Smiles & Peter Pan at the theatre. Saturday she is invited to a birthday party in the afternoon and she is spending Saturday night with her friend Karah who lives down the street.
We have been busy at the library this week. The children started their "Read-a-thon" this week. Do you have that in Ohio? They get people to pledge money according to how many books they read. So we have been having children come in and check out large stacks of books. Reminds us of summer. I think the benefits go to March of Dimes.
Well, I better close.
Love, Catherine, Gerry & Wendy
