    Rodney

    and

    I are very

    appreciative

    of a l l that the Myrtle Point

    family did to

    make

    the urainatlon

    service

    for

    Marx L.

    so

    special .

    of the night a f t e r t h e i r return to Mexico.

    Berenice

    needed

    a t

    6 to

    study

    math

    for the

    exam.

    Yesterday,

    M*s 18th

    from

    w o u l d b e

    Mark's 44th birthday. P icture Maysel

    serving breakfast

    and

    eight

    of us all

    talking

    and asking questions and no one l istening

    i t

    seemed). The day ahead meant

    going

    into S a l t i l l o ,

    gett ing

    Berenice

    to

    her

    school

    and arranging for the math t e s t tha t bugged her

    a l l

    summer

    The

    suburban

    needed t o

    be

    unloaded,

    Mark

    needed t o pay t h e

    landlady

    the

    rent and once the

    word was

    out that they were

    home

    they

    needed to expect a l l of the people who would arr ive and have e i t h e r

    c o l d l emonade , K o o l - a i d o r i c e d

    t e a

    t o s e r v e .

    I decided t h a t if I

    wanted

    to

    enjoy

    a re run o f

    a c t i v it i e s a t

    Myrtle Point I

    had to

    wait

    and

    go v i s i t

    Berenice and

    Ana

    Silvia

    Northrup

    when

    they

    weren' t

    so

    busy.

    So I

    did. I t

    was

    great

    They

    gave me

    a very

    descr ipt ive account of where

    they s l e p t , where

    they

    went, Whowas Who i n c l u d i n g the

    S t e r r e t t family dog.

    I heard how

    well Cathy

    speaks

    Spanish and even how Mike now and then competed

    in

    t r a n s l a t i n g . Besides

    a f u l l

    acount

    of

    food:

    pizza , an

    authentic

    Mexican

    r e s t a u r a n t , hot dogs,

    b a r b e c u e . . . t h e y

    even included t e l l i n g

    me that Sheila

    Maysel Northrup^asked

    Joe

    for a bowl of cereal and

    this required a telephone cal l to get

    it

    a l l

    unscrambled

    before

    Sheila

    got

    her cereal. (They laughed and held

    their

    stomachs on that

    oneJ) Besides a wonderful time a t

    the

    beach, a t r i p into the Redwood

    conversat ions using

    their

    English

    (which should have improved

    as

    muc

    talking as

    they

    did),

    Berenice

    was especially appreciative

    of

    the^

    help Joe

    gave her

    preparing for her

    math t e s t .

    We are a l l

    rejoicing

    with

    her

    that

    she

    passed

    the

    test

    Thanks

    Joe,

    for

    your

    share

    in the

    results

    Although Rodney and I would have

    enjoyed

    being a t the Ordination servi

    for Mark L. Northrup,

    we

    look forward eventually to seeing a video

    of

    the

    s e r v i c e . Also

    if t h e r e i s still a copy o f the program we would

    l i k e

    t o have one f o r

    our album.

    Las t L o r d s

    Day

    when

    a

    5 t h

    Sunday

    service

    of

    the congregat ions was held on Rancho Altamira,

    we

    had Mark

    L

    family

    for

    dinner.

    W e got to talk about Myrtle

    Point

    and wish Rodney

    Happy

    Birthday. Magdalena

    Rodney. (His 70th).
