I haven't heard from you since you left. I hope it's only a delay in the mail and nothing else. How do you feel? If you haven't sent me the "A" book on the Plymouth please do so right away.
This has been a busy day for me. Not because we are particularly busy now but because I felt like working. I only saw six patients but I put in twenty fillings. I could just as well have made twenty sittings out of the six, but one gets tired of loafing all the time.
One of Dr. Taylor's patients, a cook, brought in four large steak sandwiches for lunch. I had one plus a bottle of milk and feel quite full still.
Last night three of us went downtown. Stopped in a bar for drinks. Turned in. Tonight I may go to a movie. They are showing "Lifeboat." Maybe I'll leave it for tomorrow night when I stand watch. It all depends on how I feel.
Everybody enjoyed the gingerbread cake (the icing was not sour). I ate the apple for breakfast plus a couple of cookies.
Excuse my rambling, but everything goes down as it comes up (I mean my thoughts).
It's just been a couple of days since you left and I can hardly wait for Saturday night.
