October 5, 1969 The New Man, The Virus, The Accomplishment and The Small Chairs
Dear Mother & Daddy,
"I'm behind again. The phone rang so much the last two days I didn't get my work done. We are going to a tea in a few minutes and then we're having company for supper. B has a new man in his office so we're having them & another couple. They are from Kirksville, Mo.
Ann had written only once the past week and I knew she had a cold so I called her yesterday. She had been sick and in the infirmary all week but went back to class Friday afternoon. She still sounded like she had a cold but said she was all right. The doctor said she had a virus and she'd been taking antibiotics for a sore throat & sore ear.
It has been hot here but the sunshine has been wonderful. Today it is cooler & cloudy so we expect rain. Last night we sat through most of the football game without jackets & there was a breeze too.
I have the walnut lumber stashed under our bed. I wanted to store it flat & that was the first place I thought of. It isn't as smooth as I wanted it to be but Daddy will have to see it.
Parents' weekend is Oct. 24, 25, 26 and if B can manage it we are coming to Richland the 23rd. & then drive back to Fulton the next day.
What is Charlotte making with all this stuff she's been hauling to Daddy's workshop? I still can't understand what she's doing.
Mrs. Allen quilted that Garden Path that Grandmother B made for Bob & Pat. Rosalyn thought it would be all right for it. Ann's quilt isn't finished yet but is being quilted.
My living room looks nice now. I put orange on the small chairs & it sure perked up the room. I upholstered 3 chairs this week & that is real work.
I must stop and get dressed. Hope you both are fine."
Lots of love,
