Dear Mom, Dad and Paulie,
All day yesterday was spent in playing monopoly. We broke up at about 9:30 PM when for the second time straight I won and bankrupt everybody else.
It’s still pretty hot here. Maybe it’s just a little hot spell but it certainly doesn’t seem like late October. Of course it is a little chilly in the morning but that doesn’t last long.
I spent all yesterday afternoon on crutches, and for the first time, the major saw me. My heart skipped and I murmured “This is it,” but he just said, “Hello,” and walked on. I don’t think what he saw registered. So, this morning I asked him for a pair of crutches and he replied with a smile, “I don’t know what you can do on crutches with that cast. I answered, “But, I’ve been doing it, Sir.” He said, “You have?” laughed and walked on. I still can’t figure that guy out.
As soon as I finish this letter I’m going to dash down to the barber shop and get prettied up.
I can’t think of anything else so,
