Here’s the Contract

Dear David,

Here’s the contract. I hope you are in a better frame of mind than when you wrote. You sounded a little discouraged. Well, chin up and all that sort of thing.

Dad recovered from having his tooth pulled, but it did bother him a few days. He sprayed the evergreens yesterday and today it is raining. However I think all that stuff needs to do to kill bugs is hit. I hardly think a gentle rain will wash off the effect it has on the bugs.

1963-05-17-gry-p-2[page 2] I am feeling much better. In fact I washed some windows yesterday. A bird flew into the middle living room window and made such a mess it needed a good washing. I didn’t wash all the windows and since it is raining today I am glad I didn’t.

We watched the blast off and yesterday evening got to listen to the entire recovery program.

I am still listening to La Traviata. It’s beautiful.

Don’t get discouraged. You still have 4 years of school.

I will talk to Rev. F. this week-end.

Love Mother

One thought on “Here’s the Contract

    Sadly, I have no idea what contract she is referring to. Nor do I recall what I needed cheering up about.

    “A bird flew into the middle living room window and made such a mess it needed a good washing.” When a bird crashed into the window it made quite a noise.

    “I am still listening to La Traviata. It’s beautiful.” Ah, now we know what the Mother’s Day opera was. 🙂

    “Don’t get discouraged. You still have 4 years of school.” In 1963….I guess I had made my decision to go to seminary. 😦
