The Navy Way

Had my usual busy morning but was all secured by 11:15 AM. The mail man brought me a letter from you and one from Dave.
After lunch I got a boat and went over to a hospital ship to see about some prosthetic treatment for one of my patients. Then I went ashore for a few beers.
I got back to the ship at 5:45 just in time for dinner. I ate chow, visited with the skipper and here I am.
Some of my questions of yesterday are now answered. Sorry the Seder was dull. Naturally you'd expect somewhat of a fashion show at the dinner. Betty and Oscar can give each other loving glances but when I get back we'll omit the glances. Is it a deal? OK!
I'll look for the snaps you mention. I hope there are some of you in the next batch.
The movie tonight is "The Navy Way" and is supposed to be excellent (I hope).
I am really slightly high so I'd better sign off. Goodnight my Sweet until tomorrow.
Loving you always,
Your loving husband,
