fleet week

The message on the back of this card, sent in 1956, reads in part: "Looks too much like a prison." That may be but the card is pretty. Both of these cards were sent by the same man to the same person in Speed, Indiana.

The message in part on this one: "Here's where I'm not going to school. Passed by it today on my motor launch trip to Newport. Tomorrow will be a long hot Sunday. Wish I were home." I bet he did.

Listening drowsily to the radio early this morning, I heard that it is Fleet Week in New York, and I immediately smiled. Hot spring weather and the boys are 'on the town'. I've been in NY and other cities during Fleet Weeks. There is something about a naval uniform, be it domestic or foreign.
