October 19, 1984Dear Mom & Dad,
Thanks for your long letter – got it yesterday – glad to get caught up on all the family news. Sounds like I better be saving some $ - for the deal I made with Mary Virginia – tho at this point I'm not sure what it was!
Yesterday we were in Mesa for the day – NARFE luncheon – that lasted 2½ hours. Long program – a Citizens Against Crime – speaker who also just happened to be selling tear gas in key chains or home containers. Lots of people ordered the stuff. Then after the program & sales pitch for tear gas there was the regular meeting – including election of officers. It was too long of a meeting - about half were semi-asleep by the end of the meeting.
I'm now down at the office – for a meeting that was suppose to start at 9:00 prompt – it's now 9:45 – and the gal who is supposed to be charge of the meeting isn't here yet – sure is frustrating! Yesterday we were to go to Mesa at 10:00 AM & someone was suppose to be at Sr. Village at 9:00 AM.
Now Tuesday AM – will write more later –
