Evening Honey

How’s every little thing, Okey Dokey? Sho hope so. I’m well and hope to continue in this same state of well being for sometime to come. Then after that I expect to be even “weller.” Well—don’t you think that will be well?

I went deep sea fishing today for the first time, quite a lot of fun.—Out of 12 fellows I was the only one who managed to land one. It was a “Wahoo”—Tropical game and food fish—only 20 inches long so I’m not bragging. Just merely talking—rather writing.

I haven’t flown for a

couple of days now—laying around, reading, drinking tea and playing bridge—Pleasant war we’re having at present isn’t it? Everybody is getting restless so we’ll probably be moving before too long—altho I expect to be here a couple months, even longer.

The weather gets worse every day—I should say get (damper) wetter—less dry or sompin. Think I’ll just keep my “fanny” on the ground for a spell.—(I) Except I’ve got a new Pilot to break in.

How are you and the Infant getting along—First rate I imagine—Must give you all more to do—I’ll bet you all don’t have time to do a thing except look

[unnumbered page 3]

after the kid—Ha.

Man alive, but it is hot tonight—I’m driping and no relief in sight—I wish a breeze would start blowing.

Well Honey—I’ll leave you to your own devices now—

Think I’ll go over to the Club for a while.

Take it eazy

I Love You

Good Evening Sweetheart

I Love You

Afternoon Honey,

Think I’ll try to add a couple more letters, words or sentences to last l evenings letter. Altho to save me I don’t know what I’m going to say. My mind is a blank, Nothing excites me so there is no news.

There are a couple of guys in my tent who plan to go home anyday now—They are merely waiting on orders to return to them—You ought to hear them talk—

Purty soon all the old gang will be gone—Even some of the fellows who came in after I are getting ready to leave.—One is in my Flt. and I’ve give him easy mission now so he won’t “bust his a–“—He is a good guy

[unnumbered page 5]

and I’m glad to see him go.

I’ve got another guy I am feeding good missions to also. I’m trying to get him in a possition to go home as soon as possible,—They are both married and tired of combat.

Alford and I built a table for our tent—rather improved upon it—So now I can write letter more comfortably.

I recieved a letter from you and Bert Hawkins today—Sho I still love you and I know you love me also—

Bert said Bob Snyders mother died—It seems very peculier that no one has told me—So I don’t know whether to believe it or not.

[unnumbered page 6]

you see—Bert just casually mentioned that Bob was home on leave so he could attend his mothers funeral—So I don’t know whether it was his mother, mother in law or Grand mother. Guess I’ll have to write and find out.

Well Honey—Stay sweet

Don’t despair.—I’ll be getting back there one of these days.

I Love You
