C00002 00002 Dear Liz:
I got your post card tonight. 15 hours on the plane is a
long time. You must not have been flying all that time. In any
event, I see that you at least made it thru the first night OK. I
hope that you were able to contact Susanne, and that you two have
spent some time together. By the time you get this letter, you
should have whizzed thru Zurich and Vienna, and be happily settled in
Salzburg. I assume that the three of you are getting along fine, or
at the worst are surviving together. Hows Frommers recommedations? I
should caution you that some of his recommendations are for shit. I
remember once going into a restaurant in Brussels because it was
listed in Frommers book. Well, they must have changed managers or
owners, because they were literally serving shit to all those
unsuspecting Americanos who were there because Frommer said it was
good. So, be alert, and make your own decisions. For that matter
there are literally zillions of places not listed in Frommer which
are equal or better deals than his. Take chances, you wont go wrong.
This last weekend was Memorial Day weekend. I didnt go
anywhere. The weather has been hot the last few days, and my hay
fever has practically killed me six times over. Everyone is
suffering. I thought of going sailing to excape from the pollen, but
there hasn't been any wind.
I've heard from Craig. He mentioned that Susanne was leaving
for Italy in June. No mention of marriage plans. Either that isnt
the case, or he is not talking. I am now almost ready to go to the
East coast. At long last the arm is almost complete, and I am once
again in a position to get some return on my efforts. Tomorrow, I
will be making my formal offer to Brian Carlsyle. He is really eager
to come work at Vicarm, and I think he has the potential to be a real
leader and asset to Vicarm.
I really envy you, relaxing and sightseeing around Europe.
Just think of it. You have a whole three months to just do as you
please. And me, I just work from dawn to dusk.
Last Wednesday we has the Drakesbaad slide show at Les's
house. Everyone was there execpt you and Leona. The pictures came
out great. In case you have never seen a picture of the real you, I
am trying to get some copies made. As you are in Europe, I'll send
them to your folks to hold on to until you return. The best part of
the evening was the dessert. All the women made exotic desserts, and
we just gorged ourselves. In fact I almost didnt make it home.
I am thinking of leading a raft trip down the Stanislaus. We
will probably go sometime in June. Of course it will have to be
after I get back from the East coast.
Maybe you have a better idea of what you want to do in Europe
now that you have been there a while. I can write to Nicoles parents
in Brussels, if you like. And, you and I have friends in England.
My cousins are there, as so are Bruce and Jane Anderson among others.
I have another friend in Denmark. Although I havent wrritten to him
in many years, I am sure he would be glad to accomodate you.
Well someone just posted a notice that the computer needs
repairs and it will stop in 5 minutes. So I had better sign off now
before I loose my letter.
I miss you too.
