Transcript THE BLUE l} ONNET ------------ 3 Hello Shipmates!!! Here we are once more on the move. Whoever was that fellow that originally named this thing the Rambler Ship?? He sure " as right, and did you see that intin­el" y in the last issue of the BLU~ BONNET? It seems that I got back h time to go along. The letter from Ocko that was ptinted in continued form the past t', vo weeks was written at a time when it was expected your reporter ,," oull stay on the Pensacola unt: l this ship came to Mare Island for overhaul, which at that time was thought to be coming in July. That was changed when Pete Ivans, WT1c, one of our old shipmates, offered to br'ng me to Los Angeles as he came (: 0 ; n. If you had had it offered to you, I am quite sure you'd have done as I did, so here I am. Pete sent along his best regards to all the lads on the Houston. He is now on his way to new construction in the U. S. S. Rowan, at the Norfolk Navy Yard. We wish Pete a happy cruse in his new duty. " Yap Yap" Campbell sent along a warm " hello" to all his pals. Aside from sending along best wishes, all Boatswain English had to ~ ay was to tell his kid brother to write him a letter. That lad has made Cox'n, too, I see. Better wTite to that fellow, boy. Someone made the remark in Ocko's hearing that the Houston was becoming something similar to a transport, and he was right about that. However, thank your lucky stars you're not on the Vincennes headed East with over two hundred passengers aboard. That would be some fun, eh? They took along a couple of lads from the Houston­Viskovitch and Philips of the store­keepers gang, who will be paid off on the East Coast. The Commissary Department lost a good man that day, Artie Kunz, SC2c, who was paid off and is now home i. 1 == untington, Long Island, ::'- il: 1 ,'.' here, if he doesn't find work, he eXj) c~ s to set up his own butcher shop before long. Best of luck, Butch! It has been quite some time since yO'll' roving reporter has been about 1) really get t he dope on the lads : l: 1d their lasses on the Goo: 1 Ship HO: lsbn, S1 the Contribution Box in t;; e forward mess hall is once more :: 1 commission, : lnd ready and waiting for dope. Time was when we had a P' etty good esp: onage system on here {"' J:: that purpose, so let's get it going again. No matter what it is, I'll do my best to put it in print. Don't let me down. On Thursday, 18 May, I saw a coup~ e of former Houston sailors you all sho: lld remember, Sheppard, CSK, : md Herrick, CWT, at the Naval Hos­pit: ll, San Dieijo. Sheppard is no', v back LO duty at the Training Station e. o , vn there, and Herrick will be : 1. t the Hospital for some time to come, a: 1J he's sure looking fine. He told me that he felt the best he had in the last five or six years. Ship was back on board just bebre we left L1I! g - e ~ h tJ say " hello" to his fr e: 1Js tere bE [ ore we shoved off fJr ' t: 1e ::- r01' til, == C ', Ii.! :" nish his thirty : C1l'S ::: t t: 1C Trainin~ Station. Most recel tly told story on No. 1 Cigolo 11art, is thr. t he is running around acting G- man. Seems the lad , vas with Fetel's: l! l of the B Division at the Two Th: rty Club on the Pike, and being short they orJcred a bottle of beer. Pete took thc glass and Hal't the botde, and they made it last fro: n eleven til two. To keep the waitress from b_ coming suspicious, they told t; ey vere G- nen, looking for some or. e. That's an old one- and I wondcr what our HEROES will be up to Lext? O: 1e of our Marine messcooks on the Houston with shaved eyebrows. Identification withheld!!!!! ... ,. t:: I Dutt') n :-" 1 named her " Flapper" be­cause she's always having to be pain­ted, her topmast is loose, and it's hard to keep any rigging on her." * * * • A newlywed says that he expec­ted to be the master of his house, but found that he was only the pay­master. Ocko's Wayside Observations In a four o'clock shorcb'Jat hst Tuesday morning in Long Beach- ­Two Sleepy People, and Ensign Min­ter said he felt like both of them. He was accompanied by Ensign Jonson. Our two time winner All Navy Ban­tam Squeeze Belt suggested the title. Also observed; Smitty, popular " lpc" Sparktrician, looking tough and ugly on Shore Patrol one day when Borghetti and I shoresided together. Baker Barricklo taking except­ion to Runt Akeman's calling him Slim; well, maybe!! Steve Sivak, erstwhile Blue Bon­et editor, and wife, who rode with Ocko San Diego bound one day past week- Steve goes to 11th Naval Dis­trict for Shore Duty, that's three, long, lovely, years- how I envy him! Bud Adams, our No. 2 Sheriff, seems to have taken a change of heart. He was observed scrubbing down the weather deck on Sammy Fox's back in the Petty Officer's washroom. A ce~ ebration was held on occa­sion of the Engineer's washroom. Here's the announcement: - NOTICE­GRAND OPE ING Today at 1100 Line Forms To Right Meet your shipmates at " Plowboy" Piechocki's Palace. / s/ Piechock:, USN First five customers will get slice of Double Mint gum, regular sLandarJ 1 cent size, donated by Soldier Emerson.
