Dear Mary Virginia,
Hi! Thank you very much for the Christmas card AND Christmas money!! You really know what I can use. I haven't spent it yet, but when I do (and I doubt if it will be too long now) I'll let you know what I buy with it!
What did you all do Christmas day? I was sure surprised to hear that you weren't up till about 7:30!! But that's about what tome I got up!
Have you been able to do any magical tricks w/ your "Hocus-Pocus" game?
Yesterday was the last day of the after-Christmas clearance sale of Christmas cards and wrapping paper, etc. Last night we boxed up what was left - which wasn't very much at all. We didn't have them before Christmas - but we sure had a job the last three days!
When do you have to go back to school? I don't have to go back till January 7th. I'm only going to be working 2 days this coming week so I'm really going to take it easy! I'm hoping the weather will cooperate w/ me and be really nice so I can do a few things outside. I haven't ridden the Pink Panther for so long – I'm not even sure if it still works or not!
When I took Grandma to get her shot at the doctor's Mrs. Zimmerman asked about you. She was the one that gave Grandma her shot - but I couldn't look. I think the shot hurt me more than it did Grandma!
Does your choir sing anyplace very soon? Aunt Mary often wonders about how you are coming along w/ your piano lessons.
Well - gotta go. Write again – don't wait till next Christmas. HA! Thanks again for the money!
