sleet up there Sat + Sun. Thats funny I went swimming Sun afternoon at that beautiful place called Miami Beach. This is realy a beautiful city, all of it that I've seen and I've seen a good bit of it marching around. I have to look at the scenery with one eye + watch to see that nobody is watching with the other.

I found out today that Thomas Montin is down here too and in the air corp.

I'm blacker already than I was at any time last summer. I guess thats enough for the present.

So Long, Earl (I realy like it here)
