Dear Folks,

I can understand now why our radio banks didn't get fixed the last time we sent them up here -- there are a bunch of hillbilly American civilians working on them. They slept on the workbench till about noon. Then reluctantly got up and went to lunch. After lunch they played ping pong till about 2 pm. Then finally for about a half hour they checked some wiring. After that hard work he had to rest for about an hour. Then he got up to go pick up his motorcycle.  He came back about 5 to pick up something he forgot and that was the last I saw of him.

I hope Davis doesn't expect me to stay here till these banks are ready. I'd be here till Christmas. Wouldn't be so bad but I don't have a hooch maid and I'm not getting any mail.

Well, till tomorrow.
