Golly, honey. - how I've missed you today. Was an ooky, coldish, gray wet day - and like most of yesterday there was not much for us to do. Since we've been assigned to this craft our work has been almost negligible - and the men and I have been catching up on sleep, relaxation, and good hot food.

Most of it was pretty exciting, a lot of it pretty narsty [sic], none of it enjoyable.* For the greatest part we haven't been close enough to catch the impact
