Back from riding trains

The post from Dad is a short postcard. We got back from riding the trains to Philadelphia, with a stop in Pittsburgh and Mill Run to see Falling Water. It would have been interesting to have known Dad's reactions to this. I think my interest in buildings came from traveling with them and his comments as we would visit park headquarters at national parks or visit friends houses. He would comment on the building. For me Falling water was a unique experience combining building, nature, art all in one with the added sense of time travel back to the 30's and 40's.
In Dad's post card he speaks of Angelfood cake coming in the mail. How many of us would send a cake across country thinking it would get there and be fresh?
