Dear Folks,

Nothing new to add at this time. Still on standby. Gets kind of boring just sitting around. Went out to take a few pictures, but it's been drizzling off and on all day. The sun actually broke through the clouds this afternoon for about 30 seconds. Been trying to follow the Apollo flight on TV at the Rice Paddy Inn. The mamma-sans really like TV, "TV #1, GI, TV #1." I can see two of them sneaking a drink of beer in the hooch across from us right now. Just paid my $7 for mamma-sans. They cost us $7 a month. That's it for now.
