Dear Folks,

Yesterday was just another day. As a matter of fact it was such an ordinary day I can't remember it at all.  All I know is that now I've got 88 DTG.

I did read a book yesterday. I picked it up after lunch at work. I read it all afternoon since there wasn't anything to do. When we got through at about 9 o'clock last night I started reading again. It was a book you just couldn't put down. I stayed up till I finished it at 12:30. The name of the book was "The Great Escape." I think they made a movie about it one time.

Everybody says the dry season is here now. But it seams to me we've had more clouds lately than during the rainy season. But all we actually get are drizzles so I guess it's on it's way out.
