"It is warm at last and I've been making the most of it. I shampooed all the carpet one day and have worked out in the yard a lot. There is still quite a bit I want to do but I have the tomatoes out besides the petunias. The frost didn't completely kill the first tomatoes but they look so terrible I don't know whether they'll ever bloom or not. One peonie is beginning to open up and the Lilies of the Valley are blooming. They smell so good.
We went to a dinner Monday night and are going to one tonight. Tomorrow night we have our potluck supper and I take rolls. I have them made and ready to brown.
I finally got all the turkey eggs cut. I think I told you I was using a tool I use in my jewelry class and it is slow but does a good job. The eggs don't crack & break wrong so I have quite a box full of nice shells to work on.
We heard from Ann this week but still don't know any more about the Springfield job. They feel pretty sure they will get it but things can go wrong sometimes so I'm not banking on it too much until it is all settled.
You sure didn't waste any time working on my wool quilt. I wasn't in any hurry but I suppose you wanted it done before the weather got hot. I do appreciate it and will have to get busy finishing it up. Were there quite a few scraps left? I had no way to judge how many it would take and don't sew much with wool anymore since we have the double knits.
I'm glad the sweater fit. We were lucky this time. We sent B's mom house slippers and they fit too. Her package was so late and I mailed them both at the same time. It sounds pretty silly.
I am so thankful that George Wallace lived. Everyone seems to feel the same way, but they must outlaw handguns.
Bob K's mother & sister are going to Philadelphia next week to visit with the children. I wish we could go too but we don't have any idea about a vacation. We had hoped the children could all plan to go with us somewhere but that is out. Bob & Ann will probably be moving in August so we're waiting to find out what they will have to do. Maybe we can do it another time but the time is coming soon when Bob B. won't be free to take vacations. He & Pat are fine. They'll probably be here next weekend but I don't know.
I have to go to the cleaners so I'd better get going before they close. Hope you are fine."
NOTE: Even though our mom was not a Wallace fan by any stretch of the imagination, would have strong political opinions and a few choice words to say about Wallace as a political candidate, she was deeply concerned about guns in the wrong hands and fearful for the safety of all candidates. Of the Wallace shooting she would simply shake her head and say, "Another one." Watch news coverage about the shooting below:
