And dont pay any attention to that bitch Mickey she is sure nuts, and ben on raising hell with Aurthur. I will admit Ive been on parties but Ive certainly did any thing out of the way besides darling no one could take your place. Well darling I’ve just finished supper and I’ve got a couple of hours to kill we go up at 8.30 and we wont be back until around 5 A.M. the weather is none too good so I suppose we will have one hell of a rough trip? And I’m sleepy now, I’ll be a wreck by 5 A.M. I get a 48 next weekend after this one I think I’ll spend it in Vancouver (why I dont know) A bunch of us were out to a place called the chalet last nite and had some beer of course I got pleasantly drunk they have lots of beer there and its only 4 miles from the station. I will sure be happy when the 19th of may rolls around and I can come home again. Well my love I must dash off to the briefing room and get the dope for the trip (you should see me making coffee and frying steaks in an aircraft talk about your small kitchenettes I’ll finish this tomorrow so goodbye for now!
