Double treat day.
I am trying to cut down the time it takes to send you a letter.
The typing blind into the typewriter, then printing out a draft is tenuous to be sure, and as you see from the last letter it is still not a guarantee of a perfect final copy. The real drawback is the fact that this has no way to stop cleanly at the end of a page nor does the typewriter keep track of lines per page. That is why there was that stray 's' at the end of one page, and the word at the end of the top sentence is missing one.
To mix things up a bit, I am using the "print and store" mode at this time. I have still removed the ribbon and am printing using the carbon paper. I still see what I type scroll past the sixteen-character window. I can only make corrections on the current line before it prints.
By the way, I am actually getting the hang of touch typing on this keyboard. I still try to get all the vowels out of the left hand home row, but I am going to stick to it.
Today was a double treat day as not only did I pick up my biweekly commissary, but the package of food that Mom and Dad had originally sent from Florida to Downstate was returned to Florida rotten fruit and all; it was repackaged by my cousin Bill and sent to me here.
So I got two packages of jerky, one beef, one turkey, several packs of sun dried tomatoes and some canned meats. So tonight for dinner, I had some canned turkey with chopped onions and sun dried tomatoes in a honey mustard sauce. See, low-fat and tasty too.
It is so different from Club Fed in that I can buy a two pound bag of onions for less than 60¢. The only way to use onions at Club Fed was to steal them from the chow hall, and hope the unit manager did not catch you using them in your food. If caught, she would throw out your whole meal.
