11. USN United States Navy sized paycheck coming if we ever get paid again. I'm going to draw it all out & settle up my debts with you & Vivian, and I don't want to hear any arguments. I'm still struggling along here in the radio shack waiting for that opening so I can get my promotion. I expect to get it sometime in October, but you can't ever tell. Well, I have just about run out of soap at last, and I'm sure you ran out of patience long ago, so I'll shut up for a while Will try to write again before we leave port. Love to all Jim
