August 12

   Today was a busy day at the office

During lunch hour, as during other

lunch hours this week I went shopping

for Mother’s birthday, but without too

much success. It gets harder to

shop each week.

   I was supposed to meet Beth and

Midge for lunch but my blisters wouldn’t

allow it. I spoke to them on the phone –

and to Cary too. All is fine

   Just as I was getting ready to

meet Mother and Dad at the Hotel

Pennsylvania we had a practice

airraid. It was terrific – during

rush hour but we needed it.

Although it was annoying it lasted

only a half hour and I met

Mother and Dad for a good dinner

without mishap.

   A letter from Dassie and a

perkish one from Floyd – arrived safely.
