May 5, 1974Dear Family,
Hi – It's Sunday night - didn't get a chance to get a letter written today at work so thought I would now while I'm watching "the opera" on T.V. – well Aunt Mary is watching it - I've just been sitting here eating for the last half hour – 1st my pudding then an orange!
Today was a good today at work – w/ Mother's Day coming up a week from today! Now we are beginning to see alot of graduation cards & gifts (alot of CROSS pens, etc.)
This week I'll be working alot which isn't bad because I've just been working on Saturdays & Sundays ONLY!
Rob got back from the state contest (BAND) at St. Petersburg last night. He got to spend yesterday w/ Mickey Mouse. (at Disney World.) He seems to have had a really good time – though he got a 2 on his solo & the band also got a score of 2.
Tomorrow night is the Mothers-Daughters banquet down at the church. Aunt Mary is take me –
I've got my paper all done for my criminal justice class - it's the whole entire grade so I hope the prof. likes it. I did it on Motivation, Morale [or morals?] & Police Productivity – also everyone defines it differently.
Dad – do I have a job for the summer?? I would at least be able to work two months – I can provide very good references – HA! What are Serena's plans for the summer?
OH – please make a dentist appointment for me – late afternoon might be best – I don't want to miss any more work than necessary.
My girl friend Nancy has now lost 45 pounds in 13 weeks – she is really doing tremendous. She's the one that is assistant manager at Hickory Farms cheese store – she gave me a whole pound of farmers cheese this past week. I froze about half of it.
Yesterday, was trauma in real life at work! I got sick at my stomach & everything else all of a sudden. I had to come home about 2:30 p.m. The worst part of it was that I work by myself on Saturdays – except when someone relieves me for lunch & breaks. I called on of the men over from major appliances but he didn't even know how to run the cash register! But finally personnel got someone down & I came on home! By supper time – I was feel fine – it was just a temporary set-back!
Grandma – hope you are doing fine – do you weigh yourself every morning and are you still remaining steady?
I was at the beach 2 days this week – the weather here has been so nice – though we do need rain really bad.
I went to see Aunt Sarah today – she wanted to know if Grandma had made it back ok, etc. She said to tell you hello Grandma.
Well, I've got a big Social Psych exam a week from tomorrow & better look at it a little tonight.
Thanks for all the letters –
