November 23, 1973Dear Family –
Hi! I've been studying for the last hour so decided I better take a break! HA! I've been reading about the Puritans and how they thought the Quakers were a form of the devil!! It's for my deviance class - we've really had lots of interesting readings for that class!! I'm enjoying the class - even if I'm not doing so hot in it grade-wise! (Ho, Hum!!)
Have I got news!! First off – Burdine's is having a contest "showing the true spirit of caring" - the contest started last week and will last for four weeks. There is a winner each week and then on of those four (the top winner) will get $100.00!! So guess what? I won for last week!! I got a box of candy and a centerpiece for winning the weekly prize. Everyone thought it was funny that I should win a box of candy. The Hortons are all enjoying it. It was wrapped up & everything!!
The winner is picked mostly by the other employees – but also by the personnel dept. I guess they asked so many customers. needless to say - I'm quite happy about winning! I'd love to win that $100.00 -- but I feel lucky just to have won the first week!!
All day today we were so busy – (at work) - they day sure went fast! Tomorrow I work from 9:10 till 6:10 and I imagine it will be another busy day!
It was good talking to you all last night. John – how did the drivers license go? Did you drive the new car so the state highway patrol man could listen to the tape player?? (HA!)
I don't think I told you all that I got my hair cut again - it feels good to have it short again!
We had a really nice Thanksgiving – except that Uncle Bill's brother was sick, and that was too bad. We all ate out at the club-house of the trailer park where they live. I stayed W.W. completely. I'm bound to lose five more pounds!!
My last psychology test was the worst one yet. Now there is only the final left. I guess my days of getting good grades are over. I knew it wouldn't last forever! (HA!)
Rob is really getting excited about "his big trip." So is Cris – we usually hear from him every few days. (by phone!)
Aunt Mary sure appreciated the Malaria pills. She divided them all up and sent Marianne & Diane enough to get them started; then Rob or Cris will take them up the rest. Rob had all his shots all-ready.
Ralph Nader is going to speak at F.A.U. this Wednesday night. That's the night I have class at 7:00 – but Dorothy & I are planning on leaving at 8:00 and going to hear him. Dorothy lives in West Palm Beach and is also a Criminal Justice major.
I just now got done eating by bed-time pudding –– rasberry [sic] coconut tonight. Also just had a half of grapefruit! Am sure glad they (& oranges) have really come in season – as they sure are much better tasting. (AND CHEAPER!!)
Well – I've got to get to bed.
P.S. Sure hope you found a fat picture of me – as I said before I need it for W.W.
