Mon. evening [Jan 1984]
Dear Harold & Jean
We are back in L.W. safe & working. Took down the Christmas tree & boxed up the ornaments to-day. Seems as if it takes quite a time to get back to normal routine.We had a nice time with Sid & Roberta & all the family as they came & went. By this time I expect there are different reports about the wedding. I have told no one. But we heard from Roberta that Mrs. Moore in P. [Phoenix] wrote to Mrs. M. in New V. about attending & Mrs. F.M [Fannie Moore] read the letter to the Sun. S. class. It would have been interesting to have heard the comments & letter.
Rec'd your note to-day & card last week, so will sign & return to-morrow. It seems as if there are cards & cards to sign. They might save that money for a better cause. Paper & postage.
There has been several church meetings to attend & Wed evening there is to be an evening dinner at the church. The attendance is fairly good at service. The air was quite cool Sun but nice to-day. John & Fran brought us 2 qts of beautiful strawb. they picked for us Fri. There are plenty in the fields. It seems as if the owners run water in ditches that save them during a cold spell while we were gone & before we left. We are getting good oranges.
I am going to bed on time for a change so will sign off.
