Dear Mr. Snotherly,
I thought I would drop a line to thank
you for sending the AMCO News. I sure
did enjoy reading it. I Know I read it
through at least five times. I got a big
kick out of the way the knitters at
were dressing in "Bermudas. "
Well, I'm finishing up Jump School
thisweek. I jumped once Tuesday, once
yesterday and twice today. I've got to
make another one tomorrow and I'll g®^
my "wings" Saturday morning. I guess
you're wondering how I like jumping*
Well, I like it just fine except for one
thing. I can't figure out why there's such
a rough ending to such a smoothe ride.
I get a few more aching bones every time
Well, that's about all for now. I'n’
looking forward to the next AMCO.
