Just got cards ready for Andy & Eddie for St. Patrick's day. Just a letter for Mom & Dad.
Not much to write about. A week ago when Lar & Kim were here, Kim was unusually quiet & said practically nothing. No reason was given & naturally we wondered what happened. Last nite we got the ans. The week before, after they'd been here, they had a telephone call from Kim's cousin Chris who lives in Atlanta. She was in Warren & could she come over. Naturally she did & the story came out. She works, supports her mother who drinks too much & they were living with a divorced man and 1 of his 3 children. He was at least 10 yrs older than Chris - they had a fight & Chris left after finding a place for her Mom to stay. She is afraid of him. Fri. Chris left for Phila (she had flown to Pittsburgh, rented a car & drove to Wrrn) to stay with a girlfriend. The guy had Kim's telephone number & kept calling - it was on the answering machine. Once when Kim pushed the message button he wanted Chris - the 2nd time Kim a series of swearing , calling Chris a slut, etc. Naturally she was upset & it bothered her esp. since she has heard nothing from her cousin. This is the 2nd man she's lived with - he was even older. Will she ever learn. Maybe it's because her folks were divorced & they also lived with Kim's grandmother & no male influence. Kim is the one who is levelheaded. Her bro. Paul also has problems.
We've had a cooler week with snow flurries but they don't amount to anything.
Mon. nite PBS aired a program "Your Hometown" Warren. Different Warrenites video'd different areas of Wrrn. & Ch. 3 edited it into an hour's program. It was so good & got the best response - this was about the 4th "Our Town". They offered the video for a 60.00 donation & 197 families ordered it including yours truly. I'm sure you'll want to view it. I'm glad we live here.
Soon lunch time so I'll bring this to a close. Are you still planning to visit. If so, what are the dates. I like to start planning - menu planning, etc.
