  Skin and Bones.
I may not be able to get any memory in the typewriter. But I can have carbon paper. So my thought is that while I will usually do a handwritten draft and use plenty of pencils to edit, when I prepare the final copy I will do the original and make one copy.

I can also have non-permanent markers and highlighters so that I could highlight and make corrections on the carbon copy. That would not be as good as memory, but should be better than this chicken scratch!

This letter is still being written at way too stressful a level.

I will not be able to purchase commissary till next week, and the food here is very low on protein. Tonight's baked chicken was so small that if I did not eat the skin, all I would have had was bones to chew.

My nose is still suffering from sinusitis and the doctor said if the antibiotics did not clear the problem I might need surgery! Not a very pleasing outlook.

We just had the 5:25 PM count.

OK, it is clear that I will be here for a while. I will enclose the Web sites for PC, CFO, and Inc. If you could change these magazine subscriptions, thank you. If not, say so and I will mail them out. I am short of stamps till next commissary anyhow.

Well, we have certainly covered the colonoscopy. Enough said!

Ah, skiing. To ski, perchance to float on the white stuff. I have stuck the ski map you sent in your last letter on the inside of my locker. I am glad your boot fix is working.

I am not sure what else I feel like doing now. I might catch some air in the courtyard, read a bit, and then write some general stuff.

OK, it is 7:25 PM and I just showered. I am going to lie down and read and probably call it a night.

More thrilling Prison Pete adventures to follow soon!
