Dear Folks,

Made it by another day without catchin' detail. They'll get me tomorrow for sure. Never fails. At least twice a week.

Spent the day in Avionics buttoning up that set of racks we fixed yesterday. So now we can equip two planes for full cipher operation. Davis went to Vung Tau  today to check on the status of repair. He said they are finding all kinds of wiring problems. He's going to make sure they perform an operational check on them this time. We don't want them back unless they work.

 Finished another book by Dale Carnegie today and started on "Parkinson's Law" by C. Northcote Parkinson. Remember? "the bread will fall jelly in direct proportion to the value of the rug."  So eat with your eyes open.
