9/20/74Dear Family –
Hi – Nice talking to you all this week - Ruth & I moved all the "stuff" that had been in the trunk into "the cottage." So now my new address is 405½ S.E. 3rd Street, Delray Beach, FLA. I'm not sure of the zip code.
I'm to start work tomorrow at 6:30 A.M.! Which means I'll have to leave here by 6:00! I've got my clothes all laid out!
Ruth can tell you all about the cottage I rented. It needs cleaned up - but the man was there today doing some cleaning & all. It's completely furnished – the man said I could throw anything away that I didn't want but Vanessa said I best not.
You will also have to ask Ruth about Venessa & Peala's [in the last letter it looked like "Fahala" – not sure what this person's name actually is, or how it is spelled] short visit in Florida. They had about the worse or worst of luck!
I better get to bed now – if I have time I'll write more in the morning!
It's now 5:20 – I'm not awake enough to eat yet - so thought I'd write some more! HA!
Rob knows nothing more about the Marines – Aunt Mary is beginning to think that she should have enrolled Rob in school after all.
Rob & I went to Sears last night to get a cover for the car – except they didn't have any to fit it except for a bright red one!! And also they were $10.00 for the cheapest one (nylon) & they charge $3.00 now to put it on. So I'm going to try a bargain store!
We went to Uncle Bill's office yesterday – Ruth was fascinated by all the numbers coming & going on the boards.
Just got back from my first day – or rather half day at work! Everything seems to be ok – I think I'm going to like it – except found out it will be 4 weeks until I get paid – 2 week pay period and of course I start the very day the new one starts!
Thanks for your letter – do be sure & send me Serena & John's addresses. And don't forget my new address – zip code is 33444.
