1986 Catherine's Letter -Nov.24

Monday, November 24, 1986

Dear Mother & Dad,

Hi!  Thanks for your letter and the clippings.  I read Jane Brody's first book and I have seen her second one but haven't checked it out yet.  It looks interesting though.

We talked to Roberta last night and she said Serena is now in New Vienna.  (How's it going, Serena???)  At least a majority of the family made it to Mary V's "Touch of Burgundy".  How did the performance go?

We are going to do our Thanksgiving shopping today.  Wendy has planned our menu for us including most of the traditional foods.  I notice she left out a vegetable though so we'll have to add that.  I have Friday and Saturday off also so it will be an extra long weekend.

Gerry has been making lots of contacts but nothing has turned up yet.  It's the wrong time of year to get a job in parts so we'll just have to wait and see what develops.

Wendy has been working on her Christmas list.  She goes through the Christmas catalog several times a week, marking the things that catch her eye.  She is getting more difficult to buy things for though now that she is growing older and more "sophisticated" in her tastes.  I ordered her a copy of New Kid on the Block by Jack Prelutsky.  Are you familiar with that book?  It has a poem about homework which she loves to recite.

We have some errands to do downtown so I will close and get this in the mail.

Catherine, Gerry
& Wendy
