Dear Folks,

Haven't done anything all day. Gets pretty boring just sitting around, but there just isn't that many places to go. There is a dayroom but it's never open when I go over there. I've had about 4 hotdogs and six sodas since I got up this morning.

It's another sunny day. At least the weather has been nice. Hope it stays like this for a while. I imagine it's still pretty cold where you are at.

8 pm

Didn't do any more in these last six hours than I did all morning. Had supper at the mess hall for a change. There are a couple of movies showing around the base here but I've seen all of them. Been watching TV for the last couple hours. Saw "Beverly Hillbillies", "Bewitched", and "Mission Impossible". Been watching Channel 11 - Da Nang, and Channel 13 - Chu Loi.
