Dear Carnation, Well I arrived down here in Portland yesterday. I found out that Gary had moved to a new house. It's not the greatest house in the world, but it is alot better than before.

Some relatives are visiting from Boston and New Jersey. It's been good to see them.

I got a start on school shopping. I got a purple silk shirt for $30 at Meier and Frank and a new dress. I think it looks very good on me. Of course that is just my opinion. I can't wait to go school clothes shopping. It's one of my favorite times of the year. I've already got my list, although it made need some alterations on it.

I know this has been incredibly boring, but NOTHING is going on.
