Slept in again today and did not get up until 9:30. Wrote some letters this morning & then at 1:00 we had a briefing. It was so foggy you could not see the runway. It was a power station at Rouen, France. The visibility was so poor our Capt. decided not to go so it was called off for us and I spent the afternoon bunk fatigue. They done all right tho for they just got back and they hit the target. I wrote several letters tonite & then am going to bed early. I want to go to early mass if I can in the morning. Mandy & Elliot are leaving on their furlough tonite or tomorrow.
