Dear B & D:
After you left, I noticed the garage door was open, so I went to close it and found these screws, so thought you might like to have them when you put your bed together. Also found the knife which I will return to Sears tomorrow.
After resting a while I started the washing of sheets, etc., and before coming to the office was about half through.
I was wondering what to mail these screws in, when I found the box from the calendar which you received from LeBeau.
When I came to the office, Arvella said someone was going to “catch it”—and he did. A patient had taken a cast off because it was too hot. Dad put a tension bandage on and dismissed him. I told Arvella this was
[page 2] the wrong day for him to have done that—and she replied any day would have been the wrong day for such a thing. I heard Dad tell him he was an adult and should have known better than do what he did. I sure will be glad when we get started on vacation. I will be glad to get away for a month.
Good luck in finding an apartment.

“..I found the box from the calendar which you received from LeBeau.” Curious, LeBeau was the jeweler in Kentland. Can’t imagine that i was on his mailing list to get a calendar.
Oh this is very much my dad: “I heard Dad tell him he was an adult and should have known better than do what he did. I sure will be glad when we get started on vacation.” He had a very good bedside manner….except around stupidity. 🙂
My second year at BU….I don’t remember apartment hunting.
Did you purchase engagement or wedding rings from LeBeau?
Could have, I suppose, but I don’t remember at all. Of course, I knew him all my life.
This card actually gave me a memory pang. It was pretty strong. I must have seen this card or one very similar when I was a kid!
