Dear Folks,

I wish somebody would tell the man in charge that this is the dry season and it's supposed to be hot and dry. It was cloudy all day yesterday and it rained a little. It's cloudy again this morning and cool.

Yesterday was a rather dull day. I had to work yesterday evening. I made the mistake of walking over to the hanger about 6 pm. 038 was sitting there with six avionics problems. That wouldn't have been so bad but the maintenance officer was there too. So I worked till about 8 pm and fixed most of the stuff.

That's the news around here. Nothing new. I think I got 2 letters yesterday. I'm going to mail off another lesson to the USAFI course this morning. I finally got it written up on good paper. It has been done for about a week. It just took that long to get around to it.
