Monday June 15
Got up this morning about 8:30. It is kinda nice. The room and bed was swell & I had a very good night sleep.
Today we have done nothing but lie around & sleep. Sure it nice and comfortable with the heater going & all. Reminds me of the days at Kisatchie when I could go home, build a good fire, and loaf. Wish I could spend some more happy days like those were. They were really OK.
