Today I got my first mail since Sat. – 6 letters. (3 from you)
Physio is just 15 minutes of whirlpool bath. That’s all they have here. I don’t know what good just a bath will do without proper exercise, but I supposed it builds morale, if nothing else.
Today I made another ½ hour talk on current events, and just anything else that came up in my mind. I got a little discussion started and it was a very informal affair. I don’t find it hard to lecture, like other fellows seem to do-uh-ing and oh-ing all the time. I usually talk straight and fill in with a few jokes and wise cracks or reasonable facsimiles thereof. At least a few men laugh, so I’m satisfied. Usually in the morning I gather a few ideas together and let it go at that. I’ll have another tomorrow probably.
I really enjoy reading about Paulie’s antics, especially the way you describe them. Sometimes I just burst out laughing. Even Herb tells me stories about Snookie.
Oh yes, I received the 2 bucks, thanx!
Don and I are going to town tonite to take some more clothes to the cleaners. Then, per usual, we’ll see a movie.
