"Today is B's birthday and he had your pretty card and the money yesterday or the day before. He appreciates them both and I think he plans to use the money for some sort of little gadget that he uses when he works on the cars.
Yesterday afternoon I went to look at some quilts that a woman wanted me to see. That took all afternoon but was worth it. I wish you could have seen them. Most of them were old but they had been made of lovely materials and quilted so nicely. Several were of sateen and that really makes a beautiful quilt. She is going to enter 10 of them in the show.
This is some week. I've had three groups of women here and it kept me jumping to get ready for each one. The quilters spent one morning arranging the blocks of the quilt we're making. Now I have to put it together and hope to get that done next week.
It has been raining off & on all day so I went out between showers and pulled rhubarb. It is so crisp it is hard to pull without breaking off. I have one small clump but it is enough.
Bob called as usual this week. I told him how you had been feeling and he thinks you should go to a good M.D. where you could get some blood tests and a good check-up. Dr. Myers was always good to you and Daddy but I think you need a doctor who has had more training. Why don't you go to Beulah's doctor in Camdenton? You know she would take you. It would be called diagnostic and Medicare would probably pay for it all. There is no use in your dragging around and feeling miserable if you can get something done. All of us would feel better if we knew you were getting something done. It takes awhile for medicine to work so you can't expect to feel better just overnight. Are you still taking your vitamins?
I talked to Ann this week, too. She and Bob are going to Superior, Wisconsin in May for an interview. It is a mental health clinic in a hospital and they have called Bob several times. He told them he wouldn't come until August if he got the job but they wanted him to come for the interview.
I guess I'd better stop and iron. I've tried to do it all week & have to this afternoon. I have three long robes that were used in a baptism last Sunday and there is another tomorrow. I have to press them and get them back to church. I'll have to fix communion tomorrow too. It is my last Sunday for awhile and I'm glad.
I hope you tell me in your next letter that you have been to Beulah's doctor and you are feeling better."
NOTE: What are the big commercials on TV the week of Dad's 56th birthday? Take a look.
