1984 Roberta's Letter to GHU -Nov.25
Happy Thanksgiving! I called home this afternoon but you had already gone home! I've been so COLD – here it is in high 60's - but with very chilly breeze!
We ate out today at a place called Black Angus. It's the same place we ate last year for Thanksgiving. Had the usual Thanksgiving Day meal – the only problem was I thought they were rushing us! Later found out from one of the waitresses that they had taken reservations for every table every 45 minutes! Weren't [Wouldn't] you hate to eat a big meal in less than 45 minutes!
Today the paper must have weighed about 10 pounds! All the big stores had their own advertising section! Then the rest of paper was about 75% Christmas ads! The stores will sure be crowded between now and Christmas!
We will be cutting down on our food the next few days! Tuesday Mervyn's Department store brought in a huge Thanksgiving meal for Senior Village. It was like a pot-luck – so much good food! Then last night we ate out & had a huge meal – then of course today!
The refrigerator is full of left-overs from what residents have given me.
I'll be making my plane reservations soon for the trip to Florida in January. Is there any place or something special you would like to do? I'd like to get out to the ocean & get some sun-tan. (if the weather is agreeable!)
Have a happy & safe trip to Florida!
