We were all assigned to our work today & the paint dept received 2 painters. We’re 4 now. Spent all day printing signs. Left camp tonite at 5:30 and went to the Hollywood Canteen. It’s sure swell. Danced with Kay Francis, Deanna Durbin,  Ann Sheridan, Alexis Smith, & Olivia de Havilland. Was served coffee, sandwich, cake, & cigarettes. All free. The place was well filled but everybody was having fun. Called Mary tonite. We had heard from our son. He’ll be leaving soon for the front. I am going to find out if I can take aerial gunner. If I can I’ll join a combat outfit. No action here.

Slept late this morning and when I did wake up it was 8:15. Had to do with out breakfast. Went to the crew room & had my coffee. Then we started packing & cleaning out our old trailer and new trailer. We finished around 4:30 & then went to chow & it was pretty good. After the show I finished my plexiglass ring & it’s a beauty. Capt Culver was called to London today & is leaving in the morning, Going to bed early tonite.
