August 26, 1975Dear Family,
Hi! Was just thinking that I better drop you all a note now – or as slow as mail is you won't be getting it till after I get back home.
1st – I am planning on arriving via Grey hound in Columbus at 9:40 AM Sept. 2nd. Now – since I got your letter and J.B. is talking about flying out of Columbus that morning this should work out.
I should hope my big box, pillows, etc. made it to New Vienna by now. I.T. & Marion must had had car trouble – as it seems they should have made better time.
Tomorrow I'll be on the 6:30 A.M. bus to NYC – I am planning on eating breakfast at the Hudson Guild Senior Citizen club – for 25¢ they serve a full breakfast – but no meat. Only people over 60 are eligible. (I'm special!)
Mr. Ream has really been short-handed. He's had me make alot of trips to Netcong – etc. for the farm. I enjoy it – and it gets me out of the dining room more.
I want to go to China Town tomorrow & also look around Greenich (sp?) village.
Have heard from the Hortons – Joe should have gotten in today. I would like to go to Florida w/them. I've never been to Florida since 1973 when I'm NOT working or going to school. I'd like to go down – strictly tourist!
The farm had a good write up in the Newark Newspaper & as a result we've had alot of people "drop in" to see the place. It was good publicity. They interviewed Louise & she said – "I'm 72 & wear false eyelashes – they give me a lift."
Serena – will I miss seeing you – when are you leaving for school? J.B. – I'll just be missing you. As you are leaving Columbus look down for a Grey hound & think of me.
Got to go – need my sleep for my big day off tomorrow –––
