Transcript Page Four. TB~ BLUE: BONNET USS Houston-- 4- 3- 37 1000 •• 1 • .. ' 1. ....• Dear Sal, The ship is sure like a farm, Sal. A body would've thought so if he'd been aboard tha other night when tha fog flowed up from tha water and covered tha old bateaux in a haze thicker than tha one Pa's in when he wakes himself up a snorin' to tha high heavens. Pa use to tuck his chin under the covers during tha cold spell, but he had to put skid chains on that. His snorin' so lifted tha covers they most tickled him to death with their pul­sations. Well, tha fog was thick. Had to start soundin' off on tha bell, so we hit her in swing time every minute. Sort 0' closed my peepers in tha midst of it, and listened to tha clamor 0' tha harbor. Mighty like a farm, I says. Tha oompah, tha waah, and booo 0' tha fog horns sure puts ya in mind 0' somethin'. Sounds to me like geese on tha run or a big gander blowin' a war cry through six inches 0' mud. And tha bells-- like our old dinner gong ma use to beat when tha hands were a threshin' in the fields. But there's a mite too many bells at that. If a body was a think­in' they was calls to dinner he would be a turnin' in all directions and final­ly starve to death on tha high seas. You know about those fine ranch eggs you sent me, all colored in Eas­ter tint. Just was a fixin' to stow them away with usual gusto when I sees a big salt shaker in tha midst of a lotta egg shells right close to where tha chicken eggs used to be. S?~~ hungry soul smelled out my hldm place and let his feelin's run without benefit 0' clergy. Got my: s~ spicions and peepers on a rotund mdlVldual who always packs a look 0' hungar in his eyes. Hope they slaI? ped on 30 pounds 0' blubbery f~ t to hls car~ ass and he has to let hl~ fee~ coverm' g'~ untied. Someday he 11 tI IP up on hIS conscience and f~ ll . do: vn to wallow in tha misery o hIS SillS, you may lay to that.

Adam Chatterbox is signin' off. Ain't cha glad??????? Don't look for the flaws - as you go through life; And even when you find them, It is wise and kind to be somewhat blind, And look for the virtue behind them' For the cloudiest night has a tint of light Somewheres in the shadows hiding. It is better by far to look for a star Than the spots on the sun abiding. ' The world will never adjust itself To suit your whims to the letter: Some things go wrong your whole life long And the sooner you know it the bet-ter.
