Mom & Dad,
Surprise! This is the number you dial to call direct to our house! We got our phone Friday. The 011 is the overseas number - 39 is for Italy - 81 is for Naples and the rest is our local exchange and number.
And our radiators are working now. At least they take the chill off of the rooms.
We enjoyed the Thanksgiving tape. How big is your lot? Have you got house plans yet? Send me a diagram. Are you planning on getting additional acreage later? Was it a good price? Is it right on the highway? I'll probably get a letter from you tomorrow telling me all this.
Have you sent in your passport applications yet? That's the Christmas present I want from you guys -- to hear you've got passports and tickets.
