Spent all day working on the ship. Pulled turret dome, removed gun guts and cleaned them along with their receivers. Was ready to put them back together again. Presto, a deluging rain getting all articles very wet. So did it all over again in the afternoon in addition to adjusting the foot charger.
While the rain was on, we stood under the plane wing for a long while. Finally, the water got too deep so we ran for the tent. Pretty soon it covered the floor there. Then we stood on an ammunition box until it was over. At that time, we waded to chow.
After dinner, we fixed things up considerably. Was replacing the turret dome when pulled my chest muscles which did me in for today.
Wrote my wife tonight and saw the picture show Dubarry Was a Lady.
Slept well considering the pulled muscles. Dreamed my darling was holding me in her arms, ah!.
