Dear Folks,

Struck out again today. Capt. Bevans called this morning and I told him what I need. But they didn't send it up today. It should come tomorrow along with some mail, I hope.

When you don't do anything all day it's hard to write about what you did. I just sat in front of the fan in the shop all morning. Had a cheeseburger for lunch. Did the same thing all afternoon. Had two cheeseburgers for supper. Took a shower and here I am. During the afternoon my wandering thoughts found a paper and crayon. Enclose find my thoughts for today. (Included was a sketch pad with simple drawings done with a red crayon. Maybe one of these days I'll scan them and post them here. Dr. Freud would have loved them.)
