We finally got to Chicago on Friday of last week and came home Saturday. Bob & Pat came downtown Friday night and we all had dinner together but we didn't see them again while we were there. It was cold but I did do a little shopping. I bought some material for a quilt and a book and that's about all. The stores are sort of between seasons and don't have much of interest. Most of the windows had raincoats in them.
I also had to start cleaning up the house a bit for Travel Club came here Monday afternoon. I got to Book Club Monday morning but was late for I had to get dishes out & things ready for the afternoon. I'd hoped the day would be cloudy but it was beautifully sunny & the dirt just glistened. Who cares? It's my house. I was glad when Monday was gone. Another club met Thursday afternoon but I haven't had to go anywhere at night this week.
We are planning to come to Richland next Friday but have no idea what time we'll be there so don't fix supper for us. As far as I know, Ann & Bob will be coming to Richland Saturday. At least, they said they wanted to the last time I heard from them. We'll have to come home on Sunday, as usual.
I finally settled on a quilt pattern and have it started. The trouble is, I don't want to do anything else but you know I have to. I'll try to bring a block so you can see it. It is my bicentennial quilt (red/white/blue) and I intend to embroider my name & the date on it somewhere.
B had the root of a toenail partially removed this afternoon but it doesn't bother him yet. Maybe it won't. The Dr. has tried to cut out the sides of the nail to keep it from growing in but it hasn't worked so the root had to be worked on. We have to go to the drug store for some pills (antibiotics, I guess) & Epsom Salt so he can soak it so I'd better stop.
Hope you are fine & we'll see you sometime Friday evening."
NOTE: To make up for the lack of interesting news lately, here is a segment from "Good Night America", Geraldo Rivera's talk show on March 6, 1975. You will immediately recall all the news about the release of the Zapruder film and its graphic detail of JFK's assassination. You may not want to watch the video after the interview with Dick Gregory.
