I'm so glad your work is interesting you you. There's nothing like doing what you really like.
Went to Boulder Dam yesterday as I said. It was a magnificent sight. It's really amazing what men can do - + what men are doing to-day - Doesn't make much sense. Everyday this country spends enough to build several Boulder Dams - for what - to kill + other nations likewise - hard to understand.
Got more turret instruction + operation to day. This afternoon we went out to the range + shot, shot guns from turrets + also fired the .50 calibre machine gun for the first time - good gravy they sure are noisy - we stuff cotton in our ears on the range because of the noise. With these 50's if you hold the trigger for one second - it shoots 14 rounds - It's unbelievable to see that many of those big shells disappear with a link of an eye lash.
I have some real news to tell you however + hope you'll find it interesting - I want you to know + please don't worry when you hear it - even if it is a very serious thing - you've got to have a lot of courage sometimes to face the truth - even if it hurts, + this truth is that your husband is madly in love with his lovely lovely wife -
