Only one chore—an enjoyable one—5 phone calls—to an enlisted man on duty in each of the 5 services. One in Okinawa, others in Turkey, W. Germany, Japan, & one at sea on a destroyer in the Indian Ocean. They were Merry Xmas calls arranged by the services. One was a last min. change—the Army call to W. Germany. It seems the outfit of the man I was to call got in a fracas in town last night & were being disciplined. The General didn’t think getting a call was quite appropriate at this time.

We’ve spent most of day opening gifts so the tree will be clear tomorrow for Dicks family & Maureen & Dennis. Tonight the annual affair—dinner at the Wicks. It’s Mary Janes turn to be Santa. It was as always a most enjoyable time—all the Wicks & Dougs bride to be. Nancy has been the marriage broker on this one. Then Nancys brother & his family & Maureen & Dennis. A good time was had by all.
