Letter from Ruth to Anne: April 1, 1978

Dear Anne,

Your call was such a pleasure! We want to hear of you, how you are. Yet you hear little from us! Frances seems hopeful of self and sister – much of the time. But, like me, she hits bottom at times. Patt and Laverne seem all right.

Just now, and for several months, I have a toe – doesn't hurt – that is losing its nail. This handicaps me in many ways; at least it is the cause of trouble – lack of exercise in walking – so much needed. Of course, I must move slowly to protect the nail. The toe could hurt!

What a pleasant Easter Day you had before you! I suspect you had a world of blooms. In Dothan, the azaleas and camellias, usually so pretty, were lacking in blooms. Dothan has a celebration at Easter usually.

Here, jonquils, daffodils, and narcissus have been blooming; also early spirea. Many of the spirea shrubs are still in full bloom. Several red bud trees on these grounds are blooming. No azalea blooms yet. There are many camellia blooms here and down home. Those are very large.

Tell Lois I am writing her.

Love to all –

Aunt Ruth
