Jean writes to the Hortons and Senior Uibles in Florida on the back and inside of the birth announcement. Thought the writing on the flower card looked like mine – still have that slant and I remember walking around Swindlers trying to decide what to buy. This was most likely written on Feb. 29, 1964.
Hope you like her name – will probably call her Mary V.
Thanks so much for the beautiful white mums – they'll be pretty later too. Catherine was so proud to pick them out.
The girls had all hoped the baby would wait til the 29th & then only have a birthday every four years. I'm sure she'd appreciate it at my age but would think she was really cheated as a child.
We're all fine – eating hail hearty – the ham that I've dreamed about so long was really salty to my taste. I'm sure they think I've got dog in my room as clean as I leave my plate but the food tastes so good.
The family seems to be getting along fine at home. Mrs. Smith comes on school mornings til I come home & then Mrs. Chesnut (probably Wednesday).
Love to all, Jean
