It's 9:15 pm & I've got a whole stack of ironing – that I can put off – for one more day!
Thanks for your most recent letter & the plane ticket. I appreciate the ticket very much – I'll put the $ toward a trip to Florida in January 1986! Maybe Sid will make the trip too!
I called the Shadow Motel & gave them one of my plastic card #'s – so they will save the room past 6"00. I'll have time on the 13th to go to the Motel & then back to the airport to p/u Serena & Grandma.
Have made a few calls as to the rent-a-car right now have definite reservations w/ Econo Rent A Car – for a Ford Escort station wagon. The guy at the end of the 800# said Uible sounded familiar – did you all rent Econo? Thanks for the list – sure saved me lots of time! It gets me how these car rental places always try to rent you a Lincoln Town Car – or some such luxury liner!
We have had our 4th Air Conditioner go out at Sr. Village since I got back! It's always a challenge to see how bad you can make it sound – every time – so that you get fast service! This is great sun tanning weather & I've taken advantage! While in England I got a little pale!
Wish you all could see the England slides – we really did have a grand time. Sid enjoyed it much more than he ever thought he would! Actually I think he was a little uneasy about making the trip. He is much more at home 2/ the truck & trailer than with switching airplanes. In fact this was the 1st plane he had been on since 1972!! I've flown enough the last 1 & ½ years for both of us!
Mother you are welcome to give Grandma the leg warmers. I'm sorry I didn't have more time to shop in England I could have spent a full day in Herrod's – would have loved to have had tea in their tea room! I'll enclose an article I've found on Herrod's.
Finally got my fingernails cut way back. They were so long I could hardly use a push button phone – unless I went straight down w/ my nail – not my finger or my nail would hit another button! Can you believe that? It's true – be sure & tell Grandma that!
Just this last week I saw the wedding video – April 7th – while Wendy was here. The "photographer" must have thought Miss Wendy Jean was family of the bride or groom – she is in it quite alot! I've ordered a copy of it – will send it to the Morgans & hope someday you all get to see it!
Talked w/ Serena a few days ago – Said you all were coming to Chicago soon – & she was looking forward to that! I never ever have to worry about my phone bill being under the $25.00 minimum – even when I'm gone 2 weeks out of the month!
I've got a big day planned for Tuesday (6/18) Will be at the East Mesa Sr. Center to hear Anne Hamilton speak on nutrition at 11:00 AM – lunch there – then will make some visits – Vera – etc. Supper with the Stubbs & then off to the airport by 8:00 pm to pick up Sid.
George Ketchum ª my boss) went to Albany, NY the day I got back (6/4). His ticket was on United – it took him 27 hours to get there – PHX to Chicago – then to Atlanta – to Pittsburgh & on to Albany. Like he says – for the price he was in alot of planes!
Wish I could be in NYC to help Sid go thru customs – change planes – etc. – but I know he is quite capable!
Actually I don't know how he finds time to do all he does here. I was so busy one night that all of a sudden about 10:00 pm, as I was dragging the hose to hit all the hard to get spots in the yard it hit me – I had not eaten!
O went w/ Sr. Village residents last week to see the movie – Purple Rose of Cairo – it was strange! This week we are going to see Just one of the Guys. It was filmed in Phoenix! The resident do enjoy seeing the movies – especially since they are FREE!
I'm watching Schuller – young Schuller is preaching. Taped it tonight – now 10:00 pm. It's on Saturday pm 6-7 & then Sunday 8:00 pm. I enjoy having the VCR ––
Hope you all can read this – thanks again for the plane ticket!
Love –– Roberta
