October 20, 1985Dear Folks (traveling folks),
Hope this letter finds you –– and finds you well & enjoying your trip! Just remember – the next time you go – Sid & I might try to join you.
I've got a big day planned – am to meet Anne & Gene Hamilton – Apache Junction at their new church there at 10:00 AM It is a community church that they have actually helped to 'physically' build – considering the fact that she is a Catholic & he has never gone to Church – it is quite amazing for them to be so active!
Then will spend the day in East Mesa seeing some E. Mesa Senior Center people – last time I was over in E. Mesa was June 18th – the day Sid got home from England & the day of the accident with the Ohio women! It's been a busy summer!
Didn't think I properly thanked you all for the good week w/ you all in New Vienna. Always a pleasure to be at home w/ you both!
Speaking of pleasure – we are looking forward w/ great pleasure
We are planning to have the trailer there & set up for your arrival – then after you all leave in January we plan to go up for a long weekend ourselves.
The park has a heated pool – covered & spa – also square dancing!
Talked with John at the bank this past week – they will be going to New Vienna the 26th – spend the night with Grandma.
Had my 1st Nutrition Test this past week – sure felt uneasy about it. Especially since I missed the 1st test & the teacher said I didn't have to make up the test since I had such a good grasp of the material! So . . . . I really felt the pressure on to produce a good grade on this test!
How is your trip? Are you taking some good pictures? This week Sid is back in South Bend – I'm sure he is taking some good pictures!
The airport looked like a Senior Citizens center – When I took Sid to the airport Friday – the $25 fare for people over 65 are sure filling up the planes! Talked w/ Sid & he said not one single empty seat between Phx & Houston & also between Houston & Chicago – no empty seats! No meal included on the $25 fare!
How do you like the Indian food – do you find it too hot? I'm trying to lose 2 pounds myself – but it "ain't" easy! It's especially not easy when everywhere I go people try to feed me! So I'm trying to exercise more!
–– It is now Monday PM – have been busy studying Nutrition tonight – Anne Hamilton gave me lots of printed material yesterday on various subjects.
Again – anxious to hear more about THE TRIP!
