Dear Mom and Dad,

It's Sunday morning 11:45. I'm just about to go to chow. This afternoon I hope to take a shower.

We're still in the blocking position. My buddy went to check the mail. I see him coming now. Wait—No mail yet.

I'm going to chow now, I'll finish this later.

It's 6 pm now. We had meat loaf for dinner and roast pork for supper. It reminded me of the pork at home. The only item missing was the beer. Without beer it just doesn't taste right.

The movie for tonight will start as soon as it gets dark. I think I'll go tonight. The name of it is "Confidential County". I haven't seen it so far.

I took a shower and had a complete change of clothes this afternoon. I feel like a new man.

I listened to the Hit Parade of Korea last night. The top tune is "Doggie in the Window".

That's all I can think of for today. A very dull day.
