April 15, 1975Dear Family,
Hi1 I'm in the school library – just woke up from studying Biology. That class is something else – right now we're on mitosis and meiosis. I hate to think about what this course will do for my grade point average.
You will never guess what I've been busy doing the last 24 hours! Yesterday morning I was at the L.W. library studying and got tired studying so took a little walk . . . . . and found the 1975 edition of Summer Employment. (not sure of the exact title)
So yesterday afternoon I typed a resume, last night I addressed envelopes & wrote letters and this morning after going to Uncle Bill's office to run off copies of the resume sent out a rand total of 27 letters.
Sent them out to 12 states – all different kinds of places. 3 went to Ohio – Camp Joy - Clarksville; Lakeside Association (when did Serena get hired last year?) and Cedar Point - Sandusky. Some went to resort places – alot in the East. 2 went to Colorado, 3 here in Florida, etc.
I'm curious whether I'll hear from any of them - as it is pretty late to be just applying. Time will tell.
Sunday at Burdines I was in the Stationery department - it was good to be back there. But, you can sure tell the tourist season is over – I was able to get alot of letters written.
Alice – one of my friends here at school works out at the Fountains – that's out near the turnpike on L.W. Road – it's a condo place – but has guest house - etc. Anyway, she was telling me at lunch today that their rates – as of today dropped from $32.00 for a double to $16.
She said they were going to wait till the end of the month to go down, but decided to drop sooner because they only had 8 rooms full out of 76!!! Ask Ruth Shoemaker about the Fountains – I took her out there. THere is a beautiful golf course + swimming pool – also club-house there. Want me to make reservations for you all there? Ho-Hum!
I'm taking the bus down to school on Tuesdays & Thursdays as I said before I really enjoy it – meet all kinds of people – plus see alot of sights. It's a city bus – (out of WPB) follows Dixie H'way just till Lantana then goes West and progressively South. Doesn't get back on Dixie H'way till a few miles North of Boca Raton. So far – I've been the onlyh one that gets off at F.A.U!!
The way it looks now Rob will not be coming up North this summer – at least not for school. He has changed his major from music to health education. It's beyond me how he is making it through – as I've yet to see him study. He's quite a character.
Uncle Bill & Aunt Mary are talking about going up to see the Kintners in May – May 16th till Memorial Day. I've got a good feeling they will go because they were really taken in w/ RRK.
I've heard from Jackie Phelan quite regularly lately. Somehow she has decided to go to Oregon or Washington looking for a job after she graduates. After her trip to Africa – I wouldn't put anything past her.
I better close for now –––

Getting ready to go to Sabal Palm – I think I'm beginning to like those kids out there more.
