Dear Folks,

I got burm detail again today. We finished re-building Bunker 46. Since we were about finished at 11:30 we decided to work right through lunch and then take the afternoon off. So I slept all afternoon.

Sloshed through the mud down to the club this evening to watch an Elvis Presly movie. The rains are still with us. It still thundershowers almost every day. I imagine it will last at least through October.

Can't believe tomorrow is Thursday already. The days just seem to slide by. That's why I like burm detail. It's hard work that tires you out so you lose track of time.

Didn't get any mail today. I should have a stack tomorrow, since I only got one letter yesterday.

Well, here is another one page letter for the record. 109 to go.
