August 28, 1976Dear Family, (Tennis Pros)
Hi – Today is "carnival" day – John will be selling hot dogs / hamburgers – etc. out in the main house lawn. Louise will be telling fortunes w/ crystal ball. And I've got 3 buses to meet –– etc. ––
Yesterday was my last trip into the city – the van refused to start right in front of the senior citizen center w/ 6 seniors in it! I got 4 boys to push & we were soon off & running!
I've heard from Mary – we're still planning to head West on the 7th. So the USA map Dad gave me is coming in handy. I have a problem though – as I want to visit both the North West and South West. I'm sorry that I'll have such a little time at home – but as I said – Mary has to be in school by the 13th – so the days are numbered.
Big crowd here now – till Labor Day things will be jumping.
Got the short in the starter (VAN) fixed 1 more time – hope last time necessary!
Thanks for your letter!
