Dear Mom & Dad,
Thinking about you all out on the road – or maybe I should say out on the dance floor! Sid will be leaving Northampton (Mass.) on Tuesday – 25th. He hopes to get to South Bend by Thursday – 27th. Sid sure has been busy doing both big & small jobs for Sara.
I've made plans to leave for San Diego next Thursday – 27th. Will fly over on a morning flight – already have a rent-a-heap car rental & reservations at the Plaza Int. in El Cajon. That's where we were gong to stay this last Christmas – remember – before the wedding plans came up.
Have called Lois Bruce & plan to see her on Sunday. Will fly back to Phoenix on Monday – early evening so will have almost 5 complete days! Needless to say I'm looking forward to it!
Yesterday got my hair frosted – real pleased with the results – not to much blonde!! I'd been thinking about doing it for about 3 days – then one morning I called where I always go – and ZAP it was done that afternoon!
I', sending you a blouse identical to one I got for myself – thought it would be a good one for your grey suit, Mom. Hope it fits – if not – send it back.
Broadway – my all-time favorite department store having a huge sale – all the summer stuff – lots & lots of great bugs! Of course I've made a few purchases!!
Never did find anything for Wendy Jean – for her birthday. Ended up calling Catherine – sent her a check & let her do the buying. She mentioned cabbage patch doll sheets for her bed.
Last week went w/Sr. Village residents to see the movie – Sam's Son. Residents really like it – "no skin" showing. One of the better movies I've seen for awhile.
This last week went in for an eye exam – 1st time in 4 years – only cost $2.00 w/the Health Maint. Organization. Surprisingly very little change in the old eyes. The Dr. did suggest I get new glasses at my convenience since the pair I've been wearing are getting brittle.
Wow! Now Saturday pm –– got your 2 letters today – Thanks for the pictures! I'll send back the Bermuda pictures – tho glad they were sent by mistake – enjoyed seeing them!
Got the house cleaned today – not that I did it! Sr. Village is losing our cleaning gal – as stated in the newsletter Christ is leaving for Africa 1st of October for 2 year mission. Our part-time cook Wendell wants the part-time cleaning job. Today I tested him out – had him clean this house. (For 4.00 an hour!) Actually did a very good job. Think I'll give him a little bonus pay-wise!
My legs were so tired – I did do my 120 flights for C.F. and I've got a feeling I [will] feel it more tomorrow! The last five flights were really tough! As last year – lots of people – all ages – from handicapped children to little old lady types in tennis shoes!
I was so tired that I started to take a nap – but then I decided I'd rather be shopping – only bought a pair of long pants and 1 blouse. Good buys – !!
Thanks again for the letters – do appreciate & enjoy letter from home! And the pictures – it was good to have the pictures of Sid – I didn't have any of him!!
Hope you all had a great trip! And hope you can read my writing!
PS The Red & pink blouses are closet-clean-outs – might be too big for you – if so – just recycle.
