Dearest Darling.-

Hello my love, here it is another day and nothing new just waiting for next weeks mail. Our squadron dance is to-nite but yours truly will be missing it we are no. one duty crew that means we take off around one or two am. and wont come back until Saturday evening late so that’s two days shot in the pants and two days nearer to coming home. they all help. We spent a lot of time playing bridge for an aura a point. and I’m getting to be quite an expert at ping-pong. It has been lovely and sunshiny all day but its beginning to cloud up now and we are probably in for a rain or hail storm? I suppose you are in Moose Jaw by now?

Hello darling.- We had our big dance last nite and our trip was cancelled so I took it in it was quite a successful affair they had the dance hall (gym) all decorated with Halloween decorations. They had lots of girls there and a very nice lunch, and served some local beer (horrible stuff) the airmen had quite a nite there must have been over eight hundred people there.

I am enclosing some snaps we took in the hut I have some more being developed so will send them later, these arent so good the boys are experimenting taking indoor pictures. I guess I had better put this in the mail darling so until to-morrow so long all my love & kisses.
