  Mail call was delayed
till 8:45 PM. It is now 9:20 PM and I have opened three magic envelopes, your letters from last week, all of which I received today.

I just got interrupted by an inmate who returned two books to me this afternoon. I told him I was expecting a delivery today. Sure enough, he came by just now to see if I got any new books in. I told him I did not realize he was out of reading material. He said yes, and since we did not get out till 10:00 AM today (fog again) he wanted to get something to read in case fog returns tomorrow.

So as luck would have it, I did not get to Education today. There was no chance in the morning, so I did another weeding and cleaning of my papers, so to speak, to find out exactly what I want to toss or save.

BTW, I trust you have an archive of all the web comments so that I can safely toss what I have here at some point? I will save the letters just for continuity sake.

I received several pages of return address labels from Amnesty International. I love some of the mailing lists I am on.

Sorry, I wanted to at least get something in the mail, and I want to read all the stuff you sent. I feel like a kid at Christmas. I will get out to Education tomorrow and get some stuff typed. Let me drop this in the mail just to keep the words moving over state lines!


P.S. Although policy states they are supposed to provide paper and envelopes for inmate use, this is the paper they are currently handing out. 5x8 pads with no lines does me a lot of good.
