Hope you are feeling yourself again, Paul. Do you take vitamins -- think they would help?
We are having a taste of fall & it is nice. Barb is at Lynn's so I'm watching TV & decided to start a letter.
Got a card yesterday to send to Mim & it was mailed this A.M. so it won't be too late.
Barb's hair looks nice. She wondered if the front was too light but I think it looks nice. She had to pick Scott up this A.M. H e was having his hair highlighted. I was surprised at that. Barb stuck up for him making excuses. Like in Dear Abby this A.M. A 7th grade girl bemoaned the fact that she' didn't have a boyfriend when all the other girls do. She has plenty of time for dating. You aren't popular if you don't have a B.F.
Kim's friend Nancy is having problems with her 2 youngest daughters. They are dating & sleeping with losers & boys who are bad. Kim knows them from Sheffield & knows their records but Nancy doesn't believe her girls would do anything like that. Drugs included. They can have the car anytime & she knows they stay out all nite.
Kim starts school this Thurs & Fri. & school opens Mon. the 28th. Kane schools start tomorrow the 24th.
I think New York will have tax free sales for clothing starting Aug. 30th. Maybe I can find a new fall outfit. Barb finally got her email working. She called for help & they walked her thru the process. She spends a lot of time on the computer. Really happy to have one.
Soon you'll be busy with Sunday openings of the library. I'm sure a lot of people will be happy to have it available on Sundays again.
When Lar & Kim come on Thurs, we'll have our last summer meal. Hamburgers, potato salad, corn on the cob, tomatoes from the garden & they are so good & apple pie for dessert.
I like the phrase in your letter when telling how you felt when you were sick. "Oh, please don't let this happen," I silently prayed, lifting my eyes heavenward. How pious you sound!! What a laugh! Just rereading it makes me laugh.
Fri. the 26th
Wed. Barb & I went out to lunch overtown. Then to Blair's but saw nothing. We looked on the fairly new dress shop at the former Kresky -- how do you spell it -- K Marts, but they cater to a younger look &^ are expensive. Th en the library where I got 5 books: by Debbie Macomber, set in the Seattle area; Luanne Rice, Jane Feather, Nora Roberts & Barbara Delinsky. Types of books I like to read. So you know what I'm doing in my spare time. Barb got a cookbook I want to look thru. Feather & Macomber are new authors to me.
Kim is set for school. Are Andy & Ed ready to go back to school. Nothing special going on here.
