Dear Bonnie—Glad to hear teaching suits you—I sure didn't have such a good response at first. Thanks for the swell card. It's displayed prominently. I've lately gotten acquisitive & am collecting photo PC's like an anteater collects ants: "slurp!" I think it's a phase. But fun. Pressing less hard in the teaching, enjoying it more. If I wuz rich we'd all have a weekend in someplace like this pitcher. Love, Dave

Dear Kenda & Wilson—Hope you have a wonder season—I'll be out there at my sister's—will call you. Maybe we can get together if you're in town. My New Year's news is that Claudia is coming out for a year's "trial marriage," or whatever euphemism. Gulp. Love, Dave

Dear Bonnie—Mmm, well, here at last—& r u still there? Since yr delicate desert postal I've been to England, redone my apt & car (in 1977 Cadillac green)—but still the same personality-wise—no-no NEA is gonna make ME stuck up. What're you DOIN out there? Ah, them Calif days, blurry all. Sandy Hume's comin out to NYC—staying here a couple of days—will find out all the latest. Spoke to Teaneck High School yesterday. Topic: "Carreers [sic] in Fine Artz". "There aren't any," I said. & further that there couldn't be. The vocational counselor said I was real good—can't think why. Hope yr. happy in the sun & so is Marshall [Mayer]. howdy—& MERRY CHRISTMAS, even Love, Dave

Dear Bonnie & Marshall—Are you there? Finally a punk enuf day here to get right to Christmas cards. And Happy New Year ones, too—What're you doing? Here I've redone my apt & redone my car—my life to follow soon, w/any luck. Been good year—NEA lottery winner & school gave me tenure. And my pea soup came out real good—need cozy smells on rainy days. Ah vacations—don't send me back to school, I'll confess—Love Dave
