Dear Folks,

We got a safe for the crypto gear but it wasn't big enough to hold everything so we still have to pull guard on the conex. Duff is there now. I go on at midnight to six tomorrow morning.

It was raining when we got up this morning. The first time it's ever rained that time of day down here since I got back from Da Nang.

Only 'worked' a half day today. Spent the afternoon just laying in the hooch. I finished that book I was reading yesterday.

Had chili con carne with rice for lunch and some kind of pork for supper. I got a package of goodies and some magazines today.

Just got back from the club. There was a band there tonight. Well, that's a quick resume' of the days activities. Going to rest about an hour before I go relieve Duff.
