The term "gooffed off" is applied to the head when it closely resembles a cue ball You wouldnt want me to look like a cue ball would you my dearest After I get my haircut Im going to study in my books till bed time

Yesterday as the story goes a soldier was stung by a sea creature called a "Spanish man of war" which resembles a jellyfish with a real long stinger Today he lies in the Infirmary partly paralysed

Frederick warned me about a season which begins about the middle of march and last throughout April in which these men of war and barracuda are very prevalent in these waters Somehow

Take a short break with our 1 minute survey, simple questions that are an enjoyable distraction.

north near home for our preflight training Somehow or other Id rather go somewhere weve never been before For instance I wouldnt mind going to Texas Louisiana or some place near the sea wouldnt you In fact I wouldnt mind going to the middle of Fla Although I imagine it will be terrifically hot down here in the summer Itd getting hotter everyday already it seems

Every part of my face is getting a tan except my nose I dont know what Ill do with it It seems like I peeled off about layers of skin now Soon Id have to have some skin grafted back on again It still peels though Oh well I guess it be ok Well dearest darling Snootie that all for today Dont work too hard and more tomorrow

All my love
