Dear David,

Your Mother’s Day card received. I also rec’d one from Bob & Lea and a card and (two gardenias) corsage from Shirley, Mark & Becky. My corsage from last week-end (prom, etc.) is still good. I told Dad he could wear one tomorrow. He gave me a new watch. My old one flipped off my wrist one day and hit the floor. After that it wouldn’t run. I took it in to LeBeau. He said it would cost so much to repair it he recommended a new one (naturally). I also received a notice from the bank that your account was .53₵ overdrawn. I deposited $25.00 for you. I took a sunbath today. That old tank platform makes an ideal secluded spot for a sun bath. This is my first day

1961-05-13-gry-p-2[page 2] so only took about 3 or 4 mi. on each side. If this sunshine continues I should be getting a good tan by the time you come home.

Mrs. Myers had to have a tooth pulled this a.m. Since she doesn’t have anyone to give her a Mother’s Day gift and since I had received so much I took her a pretty plant. She was quite pleased but was feeling rather shaken up from the tooth pulling ordeal. Let us know where to come and get you. We are going to C.C. Tuesday to Clarence’s to hear the family history from the cousin who went to Switzerland last summer.

Love Mother

    “I took it in to LeBeau. He said it would cost so much to repair it he recommended a new one (naturally).” I remember that jewelry store.

    “That old tank platform makes an ideal secluded spot for a sun bath.” Well, she put that space to good use after the tank was gone. 🙂

    “If this sunshine continues I should be getting a good tan by the time you come home.” I think she eventually learned that exposure to the sun like that isn’t such a good idea.

    “We are going to C.C. Tuesday to Clarence’s to hear the family history from the cousin who went to Switzerland last summer.” Oh well, wouldn’t that have been a great event to attend!
