Dear Gary, Finally back in S.D. ready to get back to school. Wanted to thank you for accommodating us. Every once in a while one has to check in with one's sources and this vacation was good for that. I hope both Bonnie [Lambert] & I can see you again before you go to N.Y. Until then, Marshall

At Rob't [Robert] Cummings house to pick up the other two books of his trilogy, "A Training in the arts" (1972) and "Interruptions in landscape & logic" (1977). You'll really like them and him to [sic] if you can get the chance. his house is wonderful. A new REALLY good book, not so new actually, STRUCTURE OF ART, Jack Burnham. We can't wait to get our butts on the road. I'm going to Seattle around the 22nd of Aug. to help Mark [Mayer] move his trailer. Were [sic] renting a F-600 and rolling his truck inside the box then pulling the trailer. You're welcome to come along for the fiasco. Things still arent [sic] planned for the 3 weeker though. I'm going to have to go to D.M. [Des Moines] for a short while. My sister is moving to Oregon. That's all for now. Marsh [from Bonnie] Mark—we went to the beach & got bad sunburns—mine very close to the tush! Yesterday we were in a 2 hr. traffic jam; I came close to puking. xo BGL #2 of 2

Kiddies: Not this time... Lotsa stuff popping (although nothing big to notate, only that I no longer have the use of Beth's truck, nor Beth,—catch my drift?). I hope I can make it down in May sometime. My life runs at a casual pace approximating land speed records. M

Bonnie! Just a note to let you know that we're still all alive AND kicking. Miss ya! xxo Claudia Hey—How is big smoggy LA? And your job? We miss you—come see us—Better yet, I think I'll come see you (heh, heh) I'm coming out with Mark after the sale. It's been a real gas to fit into your tradition here! Pat. Dave's not here. Come back so I can have a day off. George White sends his love. We're sending you the "Statues w/out Hearts" album. Be looking for it. P-nut power. Tony [Godec] is back and doing fine.

[from Marshall] Breakfast here wasn't the greatest but it was the only place in the last 110 miles. Didn't get too far yesterday—a little over 400 miles so will not get to L.A. till Tuesday noon. I can't believe we're actually doing this. [from Bonnie] Nothing too eventful yet: in Redcliffe—after M took a photo—we had to BACK out of town about 2 blocks, on a sheet of ice. M swore lots! I forgot the quarter for Las Vegas slots, but I'll lend you one. Eat the pecan pie + send me the pie plate sometime. love Bonnie [from Marshall] Also save the wreath in the kitchen! Marsh

Zion was nice. Salmon is my-t-fine. Dam [sic], I sure needed the break. Snow, cold weather & lotsa cross-country skiing. Couldn't be better (except to stay for a while) Mark

dear kids: i forgot to tell you on the last postcard that connie (the girl who mixed up our pics in leviathan) wants to buy yr. photographs any prices? they did a second operation on tony [Godec] and he seems to be ok. but i shit in my pants when i heard that it can take up to a year for one to recover from this kind of thing. pray for miracles. otherwise nothing is new. my diet is bad, i fart a lot. no burping, though. later, mark
