Dear Folks,

Just scared a rat out of his skin. Sent him scurrying in the opposite direction with a loud yell and a stomp of the foot. That was right after he scared me out of my skin.

I've had an exceptionally good day. The big event being that I conquered another set of radio banks. I won't attempt to explain how I did it, but I came up with a configuration using three rear banks. It worked so all I've got to do is change some mounts so they will fit in the aircraft. I'll do that tomorrow and hope they still work. These radios have the bad habit of working one day and not the next.

The post office was too crowded today to get that money order. Maybe tomorrow. Hate to cut it short but it's time for bed
