Dear Folks,

I guess I've seen my last of working in the hanger. I'm still working as headcount for the mess hall. And in between time I make use of my lawn chair.

I saw Capt Berry this morning at breakfast. He's in charge of awards. He says he thinks he has an ARCOM for me. So take it for what it's worth. I'll probably be lucky if I leave with what I came over here with.

I've got about 14 working days left and then I start clearing.

Kadramas didn't get his extension. He leaves tomorrow or Sunday.

That's the good news for today. Now the bad news -- no mail yesterday or the day before. Expecting about 6 today!
