June 28, 1967Dear Mother, Daddy, Roberta, Serena, John, Mary,
Hi! Today was my day off. I "amused" myself by tying 29,000 Lakeside bulletins into packages to be mailed. Out of that many 2 came to New Vienna –– John P. Joy [or Jay?] and Ernest Cochran.
Last night I went to Hoover to see a movie with Jenna. It wasn't worth seeing. I think the name of it was "Nobody Waved Goodbye." Afterwards I went to Port Clinton with a boy named Steve who works at Hoover.
I have eaten dinner twice now at Mrs. Ackerman's. I had almost forgotten what real food tasted like – especially honest-to-goodness vegetables. I use half of my meal ticket on milk. 20¢ a carton adds up pretty quickly. If it wasn't for the milk and the cottage cheese and peach salad I would probably starve to death.
Now that I work in the kitchen I can wear whatever I want to. Jenna usually wears shorts but I stick to the black and white since that is what I have the most of. Those two blouses you got fit fine but they aren't too perma-press.
Working 7 days of the week is really confusing me. There is no set pattern to determine what day it is.
Would it be best to send my money home in a check? All I've gotten so far are tips which I've used to pay for the room and also to buy my pass.
I requested 3 books from the state library yesterday. I hope I get them soon.
