Letter from Ruth to Lois: February 9, 1981

Dear Lois,

As we talked about Garrett you must indeed have felt that Rip Van Winkle had called! As it happens, I had – for the moment – been asleep for a year. It was so exciting and so good to hear your voices. I understood much of what both of you said. Another call or two and I can communicate. Those who try to talk to me have a trying time.

Garrett is a wonderful little person. Most babies are howling as they try to achieve what he has done so early. Another year and his remarks will be up with his speed in steps.

I feel fine – at the moment – have had breakfast (grits, etc.) and now a snack of chicken soup. I am cooking chicken, but intend to have collards for lunch. They are young greens, about a foot high.

I don't doubt that Garrett looks like you. Are his eyes dark? And the hair, blond? In Lisa's picture, the eyes look blue.

Love to all,

Aunt Ruth
