Darling Mark –
I don’t know why I'm writing. I haven’t received any letter from you since Friday. I guess it’s because I’m thinking of you honey. Yes, I know if you don’t write you’re thinking of me.
I just came back from the P.X. – one beer - & 1 ginger ale. I’m just getting to be an ole sock!
I was out on another navigation problem today. We were up in the Nevada & Arizona mts. Kinda pretty up in those mts. At least you see something green. I hear we’re going out on another overnite problem again Wed. I think I’ll hide out in the mts. till they leave. I’ve got navigation every Mon. & Wed. & Fri.
I just finished another ginger-ale. I’ll be drunk before the nites over.
Baby I don’t know what else to say – if you wrote a letter I’d probably have something to say in return.
It’s getting dusky too honey – so I’d better check out again.
XX Keep an eye on your heart!
All My Love
