This has been another routine day. My arm feels practically well this morning and I've felt 4.0 all day so the effects of the shot didn't last very long.
I began the day by seeing six patients in the morning. Then after lunch I read for a while and then worked on those gadgets I'm making.
I has been quite warm all day long with very little breeze although it is always comfortable up on the bridge. After dinner this evening I made my daily visit to the bridge and visited with the O.D. (Officer of the Day).
About 8:00 PM I went down to the wardroom for a glass of iced coffee and a game of Peek. After that Ambie, the Doctor and I stood out on deck and until just a few moments ago talked.
All the officers wonder what I can say writing daily. The only things of interest that happen can't be told and daily routine is quite uninteresting. Most of them write once or twice a week and they are all betting that I'll quit this one a day soon. Maybe I will but not yet. I can still tell you I love you and even if there is a lot of repetition you'll still know what my days consist of mostly.
Nothing more for now, my Sweet. Till tomorrow "lot---s of love"
