1983 Roberta's letter - July 20

In 1983 HH and Jean are about to return from their Scandinavian ElderHostel trip. Transcription follows of Roberta's letter to Ohio.  I doubt there are any airlines that still pass out stationary – possibly in first class??


Dear Dad, Mom, Mary Va, & Mie Young,

Greetings from the air - wasn't planning on flying to San Diego but late yesterday after the VAN decided to act up (had just gotten it out of repair shop!) – so - plans changed!

Welcome Back to the USA – Dad & Mom.  I enjoyed the postals - they arrived on consecutive days!  Sure sounds like you all really had an enjoyable time.  Where will your next elderhostel trip take you?

Are you both over the Jetlag?  Did you try the suggested diet to eliminate – ?

The flight to San Diego is really a relaxing one – 45 minutes – as compared to 8 hours that driving time.  Able to buy a R.T. Ticket for $70.00.  Not too much more than driving!

– Now in San Diego – enjoying the cool breezes – as compared to AZ!  Will be busy today & tomorrow - then will be going out to Spring Valley on Friday nite.  [Lois Bruce lived in Spring Valley.]

I'm staying in Del Mar – a place called Winner's Circle - it's a Great Western Motel.  They have a special thru the week – 2 nites for $24.95.  Quite a nice room – pool – etc.  Seeing Jackie Phelan tomorrow & Roz (who I met in L.A. in March) on Friday - both live up North - so works out great!

Hope Mary Virginia has told her the big news – that I owe her one!

I'm so glad that Grandma is going to be travelling with us in January!  I'd like Grandma to plan on coming out to AZ either before or after the trip.

– Now Thursday AM – walked last nite down to the ocean (about ½ mile) - really got COLD walking back!  Sure felt good!

Will call when I get home – want to hear about the Europe Trip!

Much Love, Roberta

PS – Mie Young – miss your Big Suitcase – but didn't bring as much w/me for on this trip!

Remember our 95 year old resident – DORA HOOPER – from Cleveland, Tenn.  She died this last week.  – Had just had her 96th B'Day.  Went in the hospital on Friday - died Sunday.  That was the first time she had ever been in the a hospital!
