Sept. 30, 1974Dear Mary Virginia,
Hi! Did you know you talked to me last night? It was me that called up asking for John. I needed his address so I could send him a birthday card! Did you or Mom know it was me – I wasn't sure if you knew it was me or not!
I'm down at school now – came down w/ my girl friend who has a class tonight. I thought I'd buy the text book I need for my one class & then read it tonight; but when I went to the bookstore they were all out of the books I need. So I guess I'll just get some letters written tonight!
How is school going for you? Is it this week that you all have a day off?
We really had fun when we went to Disney World. There were a couple of new attractions since the last time we were there. Ask Ruth about the Pirates ~~~~~~~ (can't think of the whole name). We got in there boat type deal & then they went down a waterways – somehow we got in the front seat – so that was really exciting!
When we went to Disney World both Rob & I got junior tickets – do you think I look older than 17? You all will have to come down for Christmas – I've got lots of left over tickets. (both junior & adult)
When you went to Kings Island – were there any new rides? I wish we could have gone there over the summer! Maybe next summer . . . . .
I'm learning a little bit of Spanish at work. Two of the guys that work in the dishroom only speak Spanish so they have taught me a few words.
Rob is getting ready to go into the Marines. Can you imagine him w/ short hair? After Rob leaves the Hortons house will be as quiet & empty as the Uible house. HA! We're going to have 5 cars for 3 people!! If I wanted to I could drive a different car to work everyday!
Well – I better close – do write when you can. Maybe you should start writing carbon copies to all your sisters & brother!
Hello to everyone ––
