Ready to do some typing.
Well, I brought the typewriter ribbon yesterday, Friday, for $6.25. Wow, that is almost three 6-packs of Diet Coke! Okay, like all the money and time you spent getting my handwritten ramblings typed is not a HUGE expense.
I recently found a copy of the Bottom Line Personal, a monthly newsletter that was lying around in the Day Area in my unit. The amazing part is that the issue is dated May 1, 1998. Not only is it way past the authorized three months we are allowed to keep publications of this kind (three weeks for newspapers), it was mailed to an inmate while he was at an institution in Memphis, Tenn. I guess it is like finding a message in a bottle at the seashore. It included this great stock tip, American Bank of Connecticut. It was selling for $58 1/2; I wonder what it is at now.
So here I am ready to spend the next four hours typing, and today the good old MRI truck is in the back area. So we will have an early recall, and that shoots the four-hour time block. And tomorrow good old Education is closed.
But enough excuses, let the blog writing commence.
Oh, regarding the comment about the link to Publicola
. Gun ownership? Yeah, that one surprised me too. Turns out that is one of the blogs that my friend the Editor reads. I am subject to plenty of ridicule from both staff and inmates, since I have never even fired a gun. As a convicted felon, I am barred for life from ever touching any type of firearm.
But I appreciate your comments questioning why certain sites are listed and linked.
