Not much to write about out here but I will try anyway.
From your last letter I gather you don't know what to expect next at NAS Minneapolis, so am looking forward to news from you as to what finally took place, if anything.
Had a smoker aboard this afternoon, which was pretty good (unusual for this sort of thing to appeal to me by the way.)
Some good boxing matches, some real good songs and a little skit.
This was followed by a good supper-Turkey- ice cream-pie and all the trimmings. You know I think of Lees and the fried chicken - lemon and pecan pie - Do you still go there quite often - if you do have some for me.
Well dear, I have to get back to work for a while so will sign off today, write real soon and give me all the news.
