1974 Catherine's Letter to MV -Apr.12

April 12, 1974
Dear Mary,

Hi! Sorry I have taken so long to answer your last letter.  It was good to talk to you last Saturday.

We had a real bad snow storm (the worst one of the year on Tuesday & Wednesday.  The library was closed on Tuesday because of it and the schools were closed on Wednesday.  Next Monday we have the day off as it is Patriot's Day (only celebrated in Maine and Massachusetts).  The schools will be closed all week for spring vacation.

Somebody is coming to pick up the first puppy tomorrow, and then 3 more will be leaving the middle of next week.  They are now able to get in and out of their pen but they have yet to wander out of the one room in the basement.  It won't be long though and they'll be all over the house.

I hear you've been doing some cooking.  Are you taking cooking in 4-H?  I made a new kind of cookies yesterday called "Chocolate Crinkles" but X wasn't overly wild about them.

Hope to hear from you again soon.

Love, Cathy
