1987 Catherine's Letter to GHU -Apr.5

Dear Grandma,

Hi!  Since we can't come to Florida with Roberta, the best we can do is send you a letter along with Roberta – she's faster than the mail and 22¢ cheaper (for us anyway!).

My new job is going pretty well.  I've been there 2 weeks but I've already visited the six branch libraries.  Aguila is the furthest away – 78 miles northwest of Phoenix.  I will be able to use a county car to visit these libraries and put on programs for the children.  In May I will be visiting schools to promote the summer reading programs.

Gerry got a job as parts manager for an RV dealer.  He starts tomorrow.  It is only about 2 miles from our house so he plans to walk.  I'm able to ride the bus so our transportation is well arranged.

Wendy seems to have adjusted well to Arizona life.  She loves being able to ride her bike to school and being close to Roberta & Sid is great for her.

4-6-87 Monday

Hopefully the weather in Ohio will be more spring like by the time you get there next week.  We saw a picture in the paper a couple days ago of a snow storm in Columbus.  The hottest it's been here (since we've been here and we came the end of February) is in the 80's.  That seems like summer to us!  Hopefully we'll be able to cope when summer really gets here!

Catherine, Gerry & Wendy
