Barry’s Attitude Now

Nov. 6 – 1964

Dear David and Bonnie –

I called United yesterday and their round trip fare from here to Boston is $106- so the enclosed check for $212.00 should get you here and back.

This afternoon I am going to take Mrs. Myers to the office for a check-up. She said she was feeling so weak and thought she needed some attention. This morning I had to help with a program at the Presbyterian Church – World Community Day – in which all three – Presbyterian, Christian & Methodist churches participated.

The workmen came yesterday and got about half of the terrace removed. They had another job this morning so didn’t get back here. I would rather not be here when the air hammer is at work.

1964-11-06-gry-p-2[page 2] We are still having glorious fall weather. There was a heavy frost this morning and heavy fog when I left home at 9 o’clock. These heavy frosts seem to retard the grass growth so Dad hasn’t had to mow for several weeks.

When Dad came home at noon he asked me if I had mailed you a check, so I can say yes the next time he asks. I thought I had better get it in the mail now.

What do you think of Barry’s attitude now? I wish he would go back to his “heaven” and stay there and forget about the Republican party. I am sure there are a number of high ranking Republicans who feel the same way. Did you hear him say he had his “heaven” meaning his home in Phoenix to go back to?

Love Mother

One thought on “Barry’s Attitude Now

    Amazing…i.e., the flight to Indiana from Boston. I have no recollection of that whatever.

    “I would rather not be here when the air hammer is at work.” Ya, we know the feeling when they’re doing street work here in Manhattan. 😦

    “What do you think of Barry’s attitude now? I wish he would go back to his “heaven” and stay there and forget about the Republican party.” And we could wish the same today, i.e., that DT would just go back to Trump Tower and stay there forever.
