1985 Roberta's Letter to GHU -Mar.8

Sunday pm
Dear Grandma,

Hi!  I've been cooking for the last 2 hours –– so I'm ready for a change!   Actually most of that time was spent preparing - made a whole bunch of marinated vegetables and a pumpkin mousse.  Both of these being "diet recipes."

Last nite at the Presb. Church we attend there was a potluck & special musical program.  It was a group based in Florida called Paradise of Praise – 40 singers ranging in age from 18 to 78 years old!  It was good music – but almost like an old time revival – not quite our style.  13 Resident of S.V. also attended.  The supper started at 6:00 pm & we got home at 11:00 pm.  We (had them in S.V. houses) kept 3 of the singers overnight.  It was a long evening – esp. for the residents – most of them are used to going to be at 8:00 pm!

Then it was also a short night – had to have the 3 singers back to the church at 6:00 AM – one girl couldn't find her alarm clock so I had to call her at 5:00 AM.  Sure hope it is a quiet night tonight – I've got to catch up on my sleep!

Sid drives the trailer over to California (near Palm Springs) tomorrow.  He will leave it there & then be back Tuesday afternoon.  After it gets fixed – I'll drive over with him to pick it up – and for a mini-vacation!

Today we had brunch at a down town hotel with our friends Rick & Dorothy Stubbs.  At on the 24th floor – a revolving restaurant.  So much good food!  So tonight had some yogurt with strawberries (59¢ a pint).  Sometimes it seems all we do is cook or eat –

Hope all is fine w/ you.

Love, Roberta
