Dear Folks,

The fall season has really started in Macon. Saturday night we went to see Noel Coward’s “Blythe Spirit” put on by the Wesleyan Drama Club. Very, very, enjoyable and well done. It was long but I was so glad that I had spunked up and gone. It seemed like quite a chore at suppertime but it was well worth it. Last night (Mon) we went to the first Community Concert which was a symphony orchestra concert and delightful. It poured all the evening and Marj decided not to go but some of us went in spite of the rain and we’re very glad we did so. I haven’t heard a symphony orchestra for years and believe me it was a treat.

Mother, I’m sorry about the flat iron – I could have sent it home long ago as the Army finally bought some for the laundry room. I just didn’t think – I’ll try to get it packed and sent tomorrow if - I can find a box and packing material. –

By the way, I haven’t a punctured ear – There is no trace of that mastoid at all. – I don’t believe that it makes any difference about ordinary flying anyway – just military pilots.

Our new Major arrived today but I haven’t even caught a glimpse of him yet. Still wondering what he’ll be like.



P.S. I’m going (tomorrow night) to see the film of Agatha Christie’s “And then there were none.” – Hope it’s as good as the book.
