Well I'm doing all the
good. went to Seattle & drank the place dry of beer. They ration
whiskey here. Why don't you send me some for a present!!! I looked around
for some 22 shells but everyone thought I was going to commit "Harry
- Karry"!!! I couldn't find any kind of a shell. Not even a shot-gun
shell. They have been "out" here since Jan. Boy this is the
country that dreams about, Snow-capped mountains, cool breeze and pretty
blue rivers running in every direction with ducks flying around like
canaries. I think after the war, I'll just take a vacation & just stay
here the rest of my life. Do you remember that patient I was telling you
about that shot himself. He went crazy last week, - can't say that
I could blame him though. Well the Marine draft is coming up this week.
Don't know whether I'm on it or not. If I am, I'll probably be sent back
to diego to go to a first aid school. I got to ride around in a Army jeep
Sun. really had lots of fun. Gaby is still here. I'm going over to see him
after a while. Boy I would like to take you fishing sometimes. I really
know how to catch crabs. I saw a guy catching some today.
Write soone & be good.
