1976 Catherine's letter - Nov.17

 November 17, 1976
Dear Mom, Dad, & Mary Virginia,

Hi!  I feel guilty since I got another letter from you all yesterday – I hadn't answered the first one before that.  Not that we're too busy – I had just put it off.

Roberta came over last night and we were discussing what your plans might be for Thanksgiving.  We certainly hope you are going out for dinner & not having a big production at home.  The Bruces invited us out up for dinner – the day we (Gerry & I, Deedee & Roberta) had already decided to eat out so we told the Bruces we would stop by later in the day for "nibbles".  They are having some of their other relatives from S.D. for dinner.

This is going to be a good weekend for us – we're getting off work early on Friday & taking Deedee & her cousin (Diane (12 yrs-old - same as M.V.) to Disneyland.  It is a special deal sponsored by Pacific Telephone.  We each pay $5 to get in & then all the rides are free.  Diane's mother works for Pacific Telephone so we got the tickets thru her.  Then we have reservations at the Motel 6 for Friday night and on Saturday we're going to Knotts Berry Farm.

My lunch hour is over now so it's back to work for me.

5:10 P.M.
We're thinking of getting a two-bedroom apartment and renting one bedroom out to Roberta.  She seems agreeable & it would make it easier for us on the rent.  We may start looking soon as after Jan. 1st we can get our deposit back if we give notice.

Excuse the varying handwriting.  I have to write quite a bit by hand here at work.  It adds the "personal touch" so I ease the monotony with differing styles.

Let us know what your new box # is.

Love, Catherine & Gerry
