Dear Mother & Daddy,
"The last two days have been just wonderful after our cold weather.

Sunday was rainy & cold all day but Ann has a real nice room and her roommate seemed nice too. We ate lunch just out of Fulton and got Ann unloaded barely in time to get to the Parents' meeting. She was all unpacked by the time we finished that so we brought back suitcases & boxes.
We stayed a few minutes with her & came on home. I think it was about 8:30 when we got here. I took Patty's cold and felt miserable Sunday afternoon so we didn't go by Roger's. We had planned toward it but my nose was running and I was sneezing so I didn't think they'd want us or need my germs.
We took Bob & Pat to the Bloomington airport on Tuesday.

Bob painted me a big picture for the living room while we were gone Sunday. It is very nice--from a picture we had taken of San Francisco. Patty said she was bored all day because she had wanted to go to Fulton with us but there wasn't room. We all rode in the front seat.
I made the cobbler with the raspberries & it was really good. That is sure a lazy dessert. I also baked some of the sweet potatoes. They were wonderful.

I have the hose turned on the evergreens so I'd better go see about it. The ground is so dry."
Lots of love,
