June 4, 1967 The Daisies, The Recital, The Commencement Talk and The Girlfriend

Dear Mother & Daddy,

"The weather turned nice again yesterday and everyone was so happy. Ann went to the prom last night and the kids were so glad it wasn't raining. She wore a white lace dress she has had a long time and looked real sweet. Her date brought her daisies and they had a real nice time even if she was limping around a bit.

Her feet were treated again yesterday and I don't know how much longer it will take. One foot is about well but she goes once a week. The doctor puts on an acid paste and bandages the feet. She doesn't have any trouble wearing her shoes but the bandages get awfully black before the week is over.

Ann played real nicely in the recital last Sunday. Thelma (Craddock) Whittinghill's daughter also played. She & another girl take from another teacher but were permitted to play in this recital. We talked a long time. She has six children and they all take music lessons.

I finished Ann's sewing yesterday and then had to hem up a white robe for her to wear during baccalaureate & commencement. She is to be a marshal--they lead the graduates in.

Our new minister is to be installed tomorrow afternoon but we won't be able to stay for the reception. We have to go to another one.

I haven't had to go out much this week but went to a funeral yesterday. B gave a commencement talk in Brimfield, Illinois last night & I ironed while he was gone but had to finish today.

We'll meet Bob in Chicago Tuesday afternoon. He's bringing a girlfriend with him so I've been trying to get the house & food ready for them. They had asked the girl's mother before they asked me so I couldn't say "no" very well.

The car is green with a black top. It is very pretty. Bob was so excited when I wrote & told him we'd bought it that he wrote three times that week--and sent them all airmail.

I want to do some crewel embroidery one of these days, too. One of our women professors has a big upholstered chair covered in linen that she embroidered. It is just beautiful.

Memorial day was an awful day here. It rained hard all day and the wind blew a lot. B & Ann were both home but had school on Monday and Wednesday so we couldn't very well come to Richland. I don't know when we'll get to come.

I hope you both are fine."

                         Lots of love,
