Dear Dick and Ellen and kate and Jenny:
Hi again. This is just a brief note to thank you for making
our short stay pleasant. Both Nancy and I enjoyed our visit,
although we may have not expressed that upon leaving. I really was
suffering from "hay fever" at the time, and the effort of
concentrating on Kates bicycle was almost too much. As I guessed, by
the time we arrived in Eureke, I was feeling better. I think that
its all a matter of getting used to it. Just as with cats, if I am
around them constantly, its OK, but if I just pick them up
occaisionally, my nose and eyes are in trouble.
Our trip to the Trinity Alps was pleasant too. We went to an
area relatively close to Eureka- the Canyon Creek Lakes region, just
north of Junction City. As it was, we arrived at the starting point
about 4 pm, and were able to hike in only about 5 miles before dark.
So it was good that we didnt go up to Howard's, for I know I would be
there another hour or longer.
Nancy got poison oak- and now 10 days later she is almost
over it. I must be completely immune, for I have yet to get it from
your Petrolia greenery. In looking for some treatment for the poison
oak, we came across a medicine known as immune-oak. It seems that if
you drink a bit of this stuff a few weeks prior to going out in the
wilds, it makes you immune to poison oak. Sounds good. You ought to
buy a supply and mail some to all your expected guests.
I am sorry about taking you house building books with us.
Either you(Dicck) or I left them in the car. We noticed them in
Junction City. By then it was impractical to personally return them.
I hope you survived well without them.
Mom called from Tel Aviv. I seems that she had not yet
recieved any word from us. I assurred her that we had both written.
By now she must have heard. In any event, I gave her the quick
rundown of all the good news, so she was satisfied and happy for the
moment. She will be in London for a few days towards the end of the
month. Write a quick letter to her there. She says that whe will be
comming out to Petrolia around the the first week in August. I have
assured her that you will have everything in order by then.
Well, I'll plan another trip up to see you when she is there.
This time, I'll plan on staying a bit longer... so my nose will get
used to the climate.
