Dear Folks,

No Detail this mornig so have few minutes before leaving for work. Nothing much to write about since Sat morning! I did go in town Sat evening after mess. I took my blouses and 3 shirts in town and bought new stripes & had them sewed on by a dress maker. Saved me hours of work yesterday. I went to show and then went back to camp.

Yesterday was just plain lazy. I didn’t get up until 11.00. Then I leisurely cleaned up my foot locker and got dressed in my slack suit for lunch. I went back to bed after dinner (after sitting out doors in our wooden lawn chairs for about a half an hour) – I read all the newspapers I haven’t had time to read the last two weeks and the newspaper stories. Had a grand time. After supper, I ironed two skirts & four shirts. Then got dressed and went to the show. Saw “Summer Storm” No good.

Must leave now and go to work.

Love to all of you.


P.S. Had a v-mail from Craig dated July 10th. He wanted to be remembered to all of you.
