Last Tuesday a letter from Alan was waiting for me when I got home from work. He seemed so pleased because I had written to him. I can’t remember exactly what I had said but I don’t think I meant to give him the impression he has got, that things are back to normal. He has put off giving me instructions for sweater til ‘his next letter.’
My Dear Maureen,
Went swimming this morning by Lady’s Mile Beach and it was really a morning well spent. If you are wondering what or rather how I managed to escape work, well it’s just a little thing called leave, all three days of it. Some of the Squadron lads are working down by the Water Ski Club so I had door-to-door transport there and back, so to speak. Arrived down there just after seven in a Landrover and after finding myself a neat little spot amongst the sand dunes went straight into the cool, cool water. It was wonderful. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun was more than hot as the morning drew on.
Danke fur Ihren Brief. It’s ok. I’ve just remembered I’ve got to write to my German pen friend and I thought I’d get in the mood. (for writing to my German penfriend, of course.)
Went to see the Bank Revue with Mike, Clive & Carol, Penny and Richard. It was a rotten show. Carol and Clive walked out during the second half. We went for a drink with Penny and Richard afterwards.
It was real good to hear from you again so thanks a lot for writing all them there pages. Believe me Maureen I’ve been feeling like a new man these past few days. When I received your letter it seemed like a dream or something. Anyway darling I want you to know I still and always did think that you are the tops for me.
