Gee here it is 9:30 P.M., already, so I had better get on the ball and write, Guess what? this morning I thought I would get some sleep and I’ll be darned if they didn’t come and wake us up to go to a class, Majors orders, it only lasted an hour but it sure did make us mad tho, after walking guard last night, anyway after the class I tried to go back to sleep, and couldn’t so I got to work and ironed out my khakis, not bad either. Honey we have to get up at 4:30 again, only we are going on a 25 mile hike, I don’t doubt if I dropped out cause I’m not use to this stuff anymore, since you got through with me ha, ha, anyway nut I’ll let you know how I made out.
Today, or I should say this afternoon the boys had to go out for 4 hrs on something to do with camouflage, and I was ordered to go up to Bnt. Hq. so when I got up there they put me to work painting signs officers names, they go out side of their quarter, 37 of the, boy what a job! anyway I’m my own boss. I guess I’ll have to work tomorrow on them too.
The sgt. let me take his car to go get some ice cream tonight cause our post exchange didn’t have any, so we came back with 20 pints, I took a few of the boys with me and when we got there, did we ever drink the cokes, boy it felt like it was coming out of my ears, they sure tasted good tho I guess I drank about 5 of them
Darling have I told you yet? well I love you, gee nut I guess I’m still in a daze cause sometimes I can’t understand or can’t seem to hear the sgt. when he speaks to me, he’s always kiddin me about you. You know something honey, I didn’t get a letter from you today, although I know you wrote, its probably just the mail. and honey if you don’t happen to get a letter from me, you’ll know I’m pretty busy, cause sometimes we may go out on a night hike and I’ll be unable to write.
Well darling I’ll have to close now cause I should hi the hay. Oh! Guess what happened? I got mad tonight after chow, cause I had to work on the gun, and it wasn’t my fault either, any way I’m O.K. now.
Well sleep tight darling, and don’t forget that theres a guy back here that is crazy about you (that’s me)
Love and Kisses
Say hello to Lil and Pop. Also Nancy, hope she makes out O.K. with Jimmy I mean.
(I Love You)
