5 Aug 1944

Dear Folks,

Just a note. It is [al]most time to go to work.

Not much of news. Marjorie & I went to town Thursday. I got my stripes [sewed] on and Marjorie got a haircut. Then we ate at the New Yorker & went to a show. “Chip off the Old Block.” We found we’d both seen it, but it was clever enough for us both to like it even better a second time. Last night we mowed & cut the lawn around the barracks. It was very natural to be using a lawn mower again and rather good. The lawn is about like ours at camp! For roughness, however.

I got my Date Dress yesterday, an 18 ½ fits perfectly except for length. It’s swell.

Am going to town tonight with Kerner & Marjorie for dinner & show.

Tomorrow afternoon & evening our detachment is having a picnic at a country estate about ten miles from Macon, private swimming pool. It sounds fun. I’m looking forward to it.

Will write again Monday if possible.

Love to all

Kay

P.S. Am enclosing a set of the stripes I’m wearing now.
