  So here's the plan.
I was going to stop after the first page but I am now starting page four and I feel a little better. I know you will read this, and that helps. Thank you.

Tomorrow we go to the store and then I wait two weeks to go again. They are out of over forty items, including five or six of the basics I need: teabags, salsa (which I use for tuna salad), and no mayo either, so I will have to go more with the mackerel and rice (which they have) since I only have half a bottle of salsa left. I have an extra box of teabags, so I can probably make it on the Diet Coke/tea mix.

I have $50 left in my account, which is about the amount I will not be getting next month, so for the first time in a while I have actually saved money. It may not seem like much, but it is pretty big for me. True, I have given up some things, but as Mom would say, "You are still alive." Then again I am thinking of the old hymn "Nobody Knows the Trouble I Have Seen."

So here's the plan: this is in the mail tonight, Friday morning I draft email replies to some of the blog comments, then go to Education and type them. Friday night, a bigger bite: draft post to go with the other letter. Saturday 7:00 AM to 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM to whenever, type in Education so that by Sunday night mail I will have a typed post and two to four emails. Since Education is closed on Sunday, I will probably enclose a handwritten letter which you can return for typing by the "Pete Typing Service!" It's not very fancy, but the price is right.

I do have plenty to write about and some of it hopefully will bring a smile to your face, and a slight lifting of my spirits. And that, my friend, is a truly noble thing to accomplish, and I thank you for your part.

Well, this is getting messier, so let me jump off the slope now.
