Just another day of doing absolutely nothing. No mail today so it makes it tough for me to write without a letter to answer.
Went to the movie this morning but it wasn't much good - seems like nothing but "B" Pictures are coming around lately Or else shows we've seen in the states months ago.
By the way do you remember Pappas from [Treson?]? Well [pay day?] he's finished up now + is on his way home. I guess all of his crew except one guy is finished now. They're not in this Group however. Vince went over to see Pappas today, but didn't get to see him naturally so he came back early tonight.
Am back on flying states but haven't been scheduled to fly so far, probably will in a day or two though. Thirty one missions would have seemed like a lot six months ago but right now it looks entirely inadequate - wish I had the rest behind me too. Guess I'm getting to be a pansy nowadays but I certainly do a lot more sweating than ever before. Used to have spells of cocksureness but that hasn't happened for a long time, wish it would though, it really makes flying a mission much easier. It's all in a man's damned fool head but it's a toughie to overcome sometimes.
That's enough of that subject, hope I get some letters from you tomorrow. till then.
All My Love
P.S. Love to Teddy
