  Hot Pot.
I am not sure if my Mom and Dad actually managed to find a non-internet source for the pot. I have not gotten a letter from them in over three weeks. I did get a few cans of soup and one pack of Milanos. Their last letter, three weeks ago, said no more extra food would be sent, and then this package arrives. It was only ordered a few days ago so I am just a little confused.

I have been writing to them regularly and sending them clippings from the New York Times weekly. I know I will eventually get a letter. I had sent them the address of a store that one of the other inmates had that allegedly would ship the pot. A few days later, I sent them the letter to say forget about the pot if they had not already ordered it. The question is if they had mailed the check before they received the letter I said not to bother

(Frank just came over and told me my bunkie was crying and would not talk to him. He got some bad news while calling home. I guess I better see what is going on. I'll be back in a minute.)

I am back, It actually only took two minutes. His Mom has COP, a chronic breathing problem. She works someplace that uses glue that aggravates it. She apparently had an attack at work today and went home early. I asked him if his Mom would take a few days to rest and he said no, she is too stubborn. I told him to take it easy on himself; there is not much he can do while in here and if she is as stubborn as you say, even if you were home you would not be able to do much. Armchair psychology.

Back to the hot pot. On a more careful reading of the memo stating the change in policy, it does not specifically mention that hot pots sent in must be clear. It only says typewriters and radios must be clear whether they are bought from the commissary or purchased from an outside vendor. Asking a staff member to clarify the memo which came out of the main office in Albany would be useless and might actually cause a problem where there is not one yet.

I will let you know by the end of the week if my parents did not order the pot, then I would certainly appreciate you purchasing the one off Amazon. If there is a problem with me actually receiving the pot, I will be able to have it sent back to the company and will pay the postage. I just wonder if Dad sending me the cans of soup was his way of telling me that they ordered the pot.

I am gaining patience. I have waited this long for the pot. I can wait a few more days.
