Choir last night for the first time - Little Eva came over to talk to me. Simply told her that Lee couldn't come back for a little while, but was coming up this weekend. Expect her either today or tomorrow, but haven't seen her yet. Wrote to Helen and to Frank - and now I must get busy. G-r-r-r! Did you recover from your “illness”? I didn't have a permanent, what would falling off roof & all!
