I'm not sure of which week you're visiting in Texas. If you're gone the letter will be waiting for you.
Barb is busy with the TV remote. Reason: Nascar racing, men's skating world's finals, Pittsburgh hockey & tennis. As of now I'm watching Nascar racing but at 2:30 I'll change to golf to see how Tiger Woods is doing. He climbed to 2nd place after a slow start.
Last Mon it was just Hollertzs, Bensons, and me. We had a great time; Five Forks is a nice place & the buffet very good. It was a beautiful day for a drive.
Fri. aft. Barb & I went to Jamestown. I got a card for Arlene Hornstrom's birthday & I wrote a note to enclose in her card. I found a short sleeved sweater at Sears that I liked. We almost didn't' go into Sears but I wanted to use the rest room. As we entered Barb looked at blouses & found 2 she liked. I looked around & thanks to another customer who was looking at the sweater, I noticed it. They were on piles on a shelf, not out where you could really see them. I really like it & bot it.
Viola Seaquist told me today she will be 90 this year. She still drives in Warren & is in church every Sun. & active. It's not bad to be going on 90 if you are active & have your mind.
Forgot to say Bensons have a new Dodge van. It is so nice & rides well. Navy blue. This summer they'll stay home. It is hard for Pat to walk. The past few summers they went to Sweden; then Norway: & last summer Germany. Also an Alaskan cruise.
When Dale went back to work on Thurs. he had to check a transmission on a new van. He got it out & the reason was a bad part. He had to put it back together so they could get credit from the Co. Then he had to take a transmission out of another new van & put it in the first van. When they order & get a new transmission he'll have to put it back into the 2nd van.
Once when we went to Synod at Greenville, Warren H. got us to skip the aft. session & we went to Sharon & had lunch at the Quaker Steak & Lube. An interesting place to eat but we didn't have time for any other sightseeing.
Dale said I could use his computer but I don't have much desire yet. He is still learning about the computer himself. But I don't think the E Book would interest me. I like to sit in different places to read like the front porch in the summer. And i like to walk to the library & look thru the books. Sometimes I even find a new author. It sounds like quite a process to learn & conquer.
I got a new jigsaw puzzle I'm working on. It's calling me now!
Mon AM. It's really snowing. Barb will mail.
