I posted late on Monday instead of my normal 6am.  Go back and read it if you missed it.

This is actually a continuation of yesterday’s letter.  He wrote three and sent them all together and due to my being on vacation I’ve decided to separate them into individual posts.

It looks like this is the last letter he’ll write before he goes to Vietnam.

Back again — Finally!

Sorry this is taking so long to get sent, but I just haven’t had time to write.  But I got a letter from you this morning (#27) so now I’m making time.  I’m going to be late for work, but I could really care less.

Maybe will be back before long.  Was going to call his dad and see if there was some way for him to get into State yet this fall.  If there is, he’ll be going back real quick like, and so will I.  I’ve had enough of this being away from you.

Sorry about that cold!  Hope it doesn’t last long.  I’ve still got mine though.  Last weekend was worth anything, like you said.  Maybe soon every weekend can be spent together.  Hope so.

As far as money to move back on — all I need is gas money, and we have enough of that left in the kitty for both of us.  I have a feeling it’s going to get used before long.

Well, it doesn’t look like this is going to get finished today either.  Sorry you haven’t been hearing from me as much as usual.  I’ll do my best to correct that real quick like, OK?  OK!  So long for now.
