Dear Family –
Hi! Thanks for your letter written this last Thursday – also for the check. I've applied to Florida Atlantic and should find out by May 25th if I'm accepted for their summer quarter. I'm hoping just to take 1 course during the summer. I'll let you know as soon as I find out anything definite.
I worked again today – you would never believe how empty the store is on Sundays. I really don't see how it pays to stay open. I guess during the winter season it's alot busier - but not now!!
I've been studying my Math - tonight Our 1st test is tomorrow night! Yesterday I sen to the library and got some books out on Modern Math. For tomorrow we had to do several problems in Mod 5 - a math system w/ 5 numbers (0, 1, 2, 3, & 4) I didn't get it at all at first - but now I think I do – like 2+2=4; but 2+3=0 [wouldn't that be 10?], 3+4=2, and 4+1=0!!! This Modern Math is something else!!
We haven't heard yet from Aunt Mary & Uncle Bill - but should before too long! Rob & I are getting along fine – and by the way - I'm still on my diet. My dresses are beginning to get a little bit looser. (sp?)
Mom – I'm glad you got the dress all-right.
I guess you all knew that I had taken a physical w/Grandma's doctor here in Lake Worth some weeks ago. His nurse called me this last week & told me that my blood tests showed that I'm slightly anemic. So now I've got these iron - vitamin pills to take 3 times a day! I guess all of this comes along w/ my old age!! (HA!)
Gee - won't be too long now till Serena's graduation! Are you planning o serving supper to all those people? WOW! I'll bet thinking about you - Friday is my day off this week!!
The weather here has been cool - down in the low 80's. You should hear the Floridians complain!!
John – when will you get your God & country Reward –
Mary V – are you planning on staying here in June or July when ever you all come. Maybe we'll be able to get to Disney World one day!!
I better be getting to bed - I've got to be at work early tomorrow – 9:40. (Ho, Hum!) Just work til 4:00 since I have my class tomorrow night.
Thanks again for the check - it will be put to good use – My Education – ! I'm bound to have my degree by 1975 - ok - that might be rushing it! (HA!)
