5/21/94Hi Mom & Dad!
All plans are made ––for Mom to come & go by helicopter (7-10 minute ride) vs 4 hours on the horse! In order to coordinate we moved up hiking 1 day earlier – helicopter runs only on Fridays / Sundays. Actually that works out better for rest of us w/ work schedules - etc. I'm really looking forward to the hike & time at the bottom. Spoke w/ Catherine & she is happy you both will be able to make the experience! We will all fill a bag to go w/ Mom down & back up! Maybe we should chip in on the air-fare!
The enclosed are a home made item – can you tell what they are made from? Something you eat – quite often! Do you want the recipe?
We have a group of scouts here today – 1 of them getting Eagle (sp?) Scout – really doing lots – landscaping & park benches that are bolted into concrete – last two sets stolen!
I would have called back but in the mail came telephone bill – let's just say it was bigger than Christmas month. Sid & I are both capable of [upward arrow] phone bills. We actually don't mind – I'll just cut back a day or two. HA!
Went to the pool again today – after eating out w/ my friend Margaret Raps – her husband died last September while I was in NYC.
Spoke to Sid who is happy to be in Northampton – has been taking walks there – It would be an interesting town to walk in. Sara lives w/in walking distance of Smith College.
I've been cleaning out closets – trying to locate the quilt that Elizabeth Johnson gave us the year she died. Haven't found it yet – but have found lots – some I had forgotten about. We haven't thrown out much!
Our church had a special music program – college singing group complete w/ orchestra from Amarillo Texas – about 40 total in the group. It was a night of play-off games for Phx Suns Basketball – only 11 people there and 2 of them were parents of one of the students. I had intended to leave early – had not had any supper before I left. But I didn't have the nerve to walk out!
Mom – how does it eel to be w/out cast & able to take a bath? Have you been able to drive? Just let me know if you want G'ma's light wheel chair in Colorado. Might bring it for Aunt Mary or whoever.
I broke my glasses – trash can lid hit me. Had been thinking about getting new ones – just about 2 years. I go to the place that has DES contract but they also take $ paying customers. I think exam/glasses cost me $50 last time! Such a deal! Now that my glasses are in 4 pieces, I'm motivated to get new ones! Do have extra pair – about 5 years old! These old eyes have changed!
Oh – I saw Wells Combo for $2.49 in the Fry's Store. Yeah!
Gotta go –––
Much love, Roberta
