"Happy Memorial Day"
Dear Mary Virginia,
Hi – Was sure nice to talk to you yesterday and am happy to know that you will be staying w/ us for a couple of weeks. Disney World - here we come!!
Tonight I was cleaning out my night-stand and I found a letter I had started to you right after I got your birthday card w/ so many "goodies"! So now - I'm not sure if I thanked you for it - OR NOT! You know, I have a terrible MEMORY!! If I never wrote you - thanking you - I'm very sorry. If I already did – I know it won't hurt to thank you twice for it!! OK – Thanks. I really liked it alot. I took it to work & showed it to some of the different people I work w/. They all thought it was so cute! Today I told them that you would be coming down for a couple of weeks – so now you will have to meet them. They are pretty nutty – but not as nutty as Rozella or Cathy in J & Dub.
Today was something at work - the electricity went off - the whole store was completely DARK!! At 1st it was kinda funny but then some people got real excited – alot of women started screaming - 2 people almost fainted & another woman kept yelling that she was going to sue (sp?) the store. I had to help all of these elderly people down the esculator (sp?) – w/ a flashlight. Of course the esculator wasn't working – After about 40 minutes the electricity came back on - boy - was I happy about that!!
I don't have to work tomorrow or Wednesday. That's almost like having a week-end off - except that it is in the middle of the week.
Gee - you are just about out of school. I'll be done w/ Math by the time you all come – but I'll be taking first aid then. (I could have used some first aid knowledge today!)
It got up to 95º today - Wow - was it HOT!!
Be sure to tell everyone Hello for me – Grandma & the family.
