December 29, 1973

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!

Hello to everyone ––

Love, Berta
