January 17, 1965 The Carfull, The Ironing, The Quill Club and The Guitar

Dear Mother & Daddy,

"We have been to Peoria today for a Pen Women's meeting.  B drove a carfull of women or we would not have gone for there was a real storm going when we got up this morning.

We have a lot of snow but the highway was good and we made the trip in the usual time.

The kids stayed at home.  Bob wanted to play basketball & go bowling and Ann wanted to go to a swimming meet.

I haven't done much of anything this week, it seems.  I did get things sorted out and put in my file cabinet and the desk cleaned up.  Then I got caught up on my ironing.  All the tablecloths & napkins we used at our New Year's dinner had to be washed.  They iron better if I take them out of the dryer at the right time so I saved them until I had time to do them right.

The first part of the week was pretty nice and B got home from Indiana before the weather started getting bad.

Ann had her first piano lesson Wednesday afternoon.  She seems to like the teacher fine.  The music looks awfully hard to me but Ann seems to think it's alright.

We had Quill club Thursday night and I went but hadn't written anything to read. I haven't written anything in so long.  There is always something else to do it seems.

Ann still doesn't have her guitar.  B wrote about it but we haven't heard at all so he's going to send them a telegram Monday.  It is real disgusting.

This isn't much letter but there just isn't anything to write.

Hope you both are fine."

                       Lots of love,



  1. I've a feeling my wife wouldn't be too pleased if Santa Clause brought her an iron - even if it was one that could spray & steam!

    Interesting, as ever.

  2. Thankfully things like irons are too heavy for Santa and the reindeer! Silk scarves and diamonds on the other hand are easily transported:-)

  3. Tell them gently, but they have animals crawling on their heads.

  4. Haha! Thanks for writing, Anonymous! I appreciate your great caption!
