Dear Marge

Received your letter a couple of a days ago & was very glad to hear from you Would have answered some but theyve been keeping me "on the ball" No rest for the wicked you know I must be plenty wicked If I dont get a furlough pretty soon I think Ill have a nervous breakdown just for meanness Ive got a new job now Im still in the office though Cant seem to get outside on the line as I want

Weve got another new CO with us now Seems we cant hold on to one for any length of time Guess maybe were too hard on them Boy this sure is a beautiful day Would be perfect for a few rounds of golf Guess Ill have to do that when I get my furlough So youre been having a lot of rain huh So the river getting pretty high Sure hope they dont have another flood

Youre sure a movie fiend arent you Have you seen "Up in Arms" yet If not dont miss it It was really good Ive been seeing quite a few movies lately so that is almost all there is to do
