Well it's me again. How are tricks with you these days? I'll bet you can't guess what I did today. I finally got around to mailing you the little trinkets that I bought for you. Also the small bell that Gwen gave to me to send to you. It is for a charm bracelet if you should have one. It's not very much at all but I thought it was very nice of her. She had a letter to send to you the other day. It was about the same as our V-Mail letters (Air-Graph to them). She took it to the post office and they said that it would not go so she had to take it back and send you a regular letter.
I had this past Saturday afternoon and Sunday off so I went up to see her. There is not much to do except to take a walk or go to the movies. The scenery over here is beautiful. Of course there are always Red Cross Clubs to go to. That's where we spent Saturday evening. Sunday afternoon we went to movies and saw "Shepard of the Hills". It is a very old picture. I didn't like it so much but as I said there wasn't much else to do.
Well I've got to work again tonight. Boy this night work will kill you if you keep it up. The first night I have off, I have to do some laundry. The next night I'm off the Company Commander will probably find something to keep us all in for, then of course the next night that the CO can't find anything for us to do I'll have to work in the office. That is my workaday week. Then in my spare time, I try to get up to see GWEN R. WILKINS ( Gwendoline Rosa Wilkins). Nice name but a much nicer girl. Ha! Ha! I heard what you said and maybe you are right. I'll not say yea or nea now.
I guess I'll close for now and hope to hear from you soon again,
Lots of love and luck,
