Well, I suppose you are into a busy and HOT summer – did you
ever see so much summer all at once?? I am certainly glad there is
a swimming pool about two blocks away from here for our children to
enjoy – we go once in awhile but actually, for me, it’s been
too hot to even go to the pool.

Let me see, since last time I chatted with you folks – one big
event – Dana graduated from High School and now already has one
month of Beauty School in and is well on her way — we attended
piano Recital and Donnie and Keli played a duet – it was really
nice, we were quite proud of them, they played ‘Bicycle Built
For Two’ and I think that is a real jolly tune anyhow Tommie is
about completely trained (potty) now and every time I’m about
to brag about it you know what happens so I’ll just say
-he’s doing pretty good. Big news – we are to be grandparents
near the end of the year sometime – isn’t that wonderful???
Right now Eddie is taking some graduate work this summer at the
college and will teach again in the fall. Of course Kathi won’t
be teaching this fall, but it won’t be long until she will be
teaching their own little one many things. and right now we are
preparing for Keli’s Dance Recital and getting the costumes in
shape – it will be lovely I know!

Father and I have been busy just trying to keep pace with all
the offspring and getting what work done we can in this hot weather
– and I’ve been trying to do all I can to regain my health – we
have run into a few bugaboos but I guess that is par for the course
– I’m really coming along quite well and grateful for all
improvements and thank you wonderful folks for the cards and
letters you’ve sent me – I appreciate them.

I really do not have any news from letters this time to put in –
our mail has been very little these past few months and again I
urge you to send in pictures and letters to keep our magazine

That’s it for this time – do be careful in all this heat but
have a good time at your get-together’s and I’ll be writing
you next issue.

And remember – Others will follow your footsteps quicker than
your advice You will never have a friend if you must have one
without fault. You can’t get anywhere unless you start. Of all
the things you wear, your expression is the most important.
