Dear Dick & Dad:
Lois & the kids are undoubtedly on their way home by now. I just want to thank you for having them up. From what they wrote, I know they all enjoyed it.
Work has been pretty heavy again. I let up on the office work for the last part of July and did nothing but fly. When my jet training was finished & had to go back to the office. So Im about caught up now. Ill be flying part the time & pushing a pencil the rest. Id rather fly now.
By the news, Canada is the place to spend summer. The heat has certainly been terrific hasn’t it?
We have had it cool – only the last month it has been raining very heavy. – 6 inches in 5 hours several times.
There isnt very much news. I just wanted to write to let you know I was around. –
Its only about 6 months until I start home. Cant get finished soon enough to suit me, but I cant complain – I picked this business.
Take care of yourselves
