Here I am at work – w/ a broken type writer – the letters (some – not all) just won't print – can't figure out what's gone wrong!
It's hard for me to believe that this is Thanksgiving Week – when I made my airline reservations it seemed so long till November 23rd.
Yesterday I had a call from this guy who had seen my name up on the A.S.U. bulletin board for wanting a ride to go to San Diego. It was really weird – he wanted me to come over to ASU to meet him & give him the $ (30.00) – $10 of it supposedly refundable. So I told him I didn't have a car – & I would not pay ahead of time anyway. In about 15 minutes the guy calls back & told me to forget it. I wouldn't mind saving $ – but it will be nice just to fly it – since the time is so short!
It got down to 47º this morning – mighty cold! I'd like you all to bring out my lined green coat, mittens, & a scarf. Also the brown wool sweater sometime – like the one Aunt Mary gave me.
The winter visitors are sure beginning to arrive – Marion & I have been gong to the Methodist Church on the East side of town (she lives on the West side) & yesterday we got there at the same time & had to be seated in chairs at the very front of the church. There are three services 8:30, 9:45, & 11:00 – we attend the 9:45. the parking lot was full of out of state cars – and lots of Canadian cars.
After church Marion started her ballgames and I got out on my bike & went 9.4 miles – I was on the roads that I had been on w/ the car before – but it was surprising what all I saw. First I went to see the Meades' [?] new home – the bath tubs are now in. They say once the dry wall goes on – it will be a month. (Which isn't on yet.)
Mesa is rally growing – especially the West side – no high rise buildings but alot of town house type apartments being built. The freeway is almost finished now to Alma School Rd. the entrance/exit will be about 1 mile from Marions. Right now you have to go about 2 miles to get to it.
We went bowling on Saturday night – there are two places here in Mesa – one is about a mile from us – brand new – all computerized, charge $1 for shoes + $1 per game. The other alley is about 3 miles away – older – not computerized – charges 40¢ for shoes + 75¢ a game. Can you guess which one we go to? (The 2nd one!) A Saturday night ritual is to go to the Chinese restaurant – where you can eat all you want for $2.15. The food is really good – though you would be in trouble if you were looking for big pieces of meat! We've also noticed business picking up there in the last couple of weeks.
Again – I don't want the Granada brought out – winter out here may be hard on it –
We are having a party here at work – just the office people – each of us is suppose to bring in a dish on Wednesday
All for now – Have I got good news though!
