May 23, 1964 The Officers, The Honorable Mention, The Recital, The Last Meeting and The Fine Group
Dear Mother & Daddy,
"We are gradually getting things done but running our legs off. B is taking the kids around today since I am having a luncheon for Pen Women officers at 1:00 today. We hope to plan next year's meetings. Bob is getting his eyes tested, he & B will get a typhoid shot, Bob wants to take his fish to a pet shop to sell, Ann has a dental appointment and an organ lesson. Everything seems to come at once. Ann, Polly & I will get our last typhoid shot next Tuesday. We can't all get together to go at the same time.
Bob got a nice certificate of honorable mention for his science project. He was pleased about it & figured out that he was one of 4% of all that entered. Did I tell you that 18,000 entered it? Seems as if it has dragged on for so long that I can't remember what I've told you.
Ann's recital last week was real nice. B took me to Peoria and we got back just in time to go to the reception Ann's teacher has for the children & parents. Then the children played.
My blue dress is almost done & is real pretty. I hope to sew some more next week.
We had our last tour meeting Wed. night. We are to be at O'Hare field in Chicago at 12:30 p.m., June 19. They didn't have the mailing addresses of the hotel finished but when we get it we'll send a copy. Everyone is getting excited. We have a fine group going. We have a doctor, dentist, minister, 3 lawyers, an architect and the rest are teachers.
This is a beautiful day but windy. The iris & peonies are beautiful but the wind ruins the iris.
B wants to find Bob a suit today. The one we ordered from Penney's didn't come. It is hard to fit Bob & find something he likes, too.
We still haven't found anyone to keep the cat. I don't know what we'll do with her. We may have to take her to a vet to keep for us for we can't just leave her outside. Pets can sure be a problem.
I guess I'd better get busy so take care of yourselves."
Lots of love,
