First, thanks for the complements (gw scrapes feet, looks at ground, etc etc.) I had NO idea I was writing a screenplay LOL. (OPNOTE; I do believe that the 2 women who saved me from myself are now seeking counsel to sue for a major percentage/royalties, creative control, in case said screenplay gets picked up by a (conservative) producer ;-)

I was just setting out to put down some bio to explain an incident, kind of like an engineering "Trip Report". A SCREENPLAY xs???? I am amazed (LOL)...

OK, onward to the proposal.. I have to dig it out from where it resides, but I believe the DTG (Date-Time Group) is somewhere in early October, 1968, or thereabouts. I forget the filing time (DTG's show the message precedence, date,, the Zulu Time [UTC/GMY] and the month/ year, thusly, and I will use the time right now, on this post, and make it "Priority" precidence (there are Routine(R), Priority(P), Operational Immediate(O), and Flash (Z) which, of course, causes all sorts of frantic activity.) Sot if this post were a msg, the header would look something like:

PP FREEREPUBLIC
DE GWMOORE (whatever msg number it was)
P 131302Z MAY 05
FM GWMOORE
TO XSMOMMY
ROBERT A COOK PE
TEXAN 5
BT(break)
UNCLAS(unclassified)
SUBJ; REPLY TO PING THIS DATE
(rest of message)
BT
NNNN (end of msg indicator)
(I left out some carriage returns/ line feeds before the "NNNN"

Now, of course, this would have included some esoteric call signs, routing indicators, etc, etc, and is in the style when mechanical teletypes were in use, where one always put 2 Ok that's the skinny on the date of the proposal, and a leasing in communications 101, Teletype Procedure:Message Format :-)

Now we will see who was first [ large grin}
