Nov 14, 1976Dear Grandma –
Hi! Was good to talk to all the family today – but sorry I called just when dinner was ready! I'm enclosing the card from Rob – it's only 2 months late in getting to you. I cleaned up my room & found it – I just now wrote him – bet he'll be surprised to get a note from me. (especially one w/ a picture of a cat!)
When are you going to Florida? Without Rob it will be quiet at 1025 North B Street. But I'm glad Rob went away to school – it's what he needed.
I had a long letter from Aunt Mary – guess they all had a good time when Mares & family came down. I'm glad you are planning on going to the wedding. I think that maybe I'll try to make it – stay here at Christmas time – that way I could see everybody and also not lose out on any possible Christmas sales. Except for an occasional day – I really enjoy my job – I'm beginning to get alot of referrals from my customers for other people who want a set – I give them a $4.00 discount off their set then – but I'm dropping that to $3.00 and see if it affects my amount of referrals.
Today I went to church – then to my friends for lunch – we went after lunch to Coronado – it's kind of like the Palm Beach of San Diego. We went to the Del Coronado Hotel – like the Breakers – very fancy and expensive. Just to get to the island it cost 60¢ toll each way. President Nixon ate there in 1970 – I went w/ the woman whose refrigerator I cleaned out & her friend from Phoenix. I looked at the breakfast menu – ham & 2 eggs – $5.95 – we just looked around – toll $ was all we spent. People were swimming in outdoor pool. I carry sweater w/ me.
