  Printing Problems.
I assume the problem you have with printing on both sides of the page is scanning in page number order.

Since I can only send four sheets of paper on one stamp, if I print pages one to four on one side, and if needed, pages five to eight on the other side. I assume in this way you can scan the front side of all sheets, pages one to four, then flip the stack over and scan pages five to eight. If this is not a solution let me know and I will just buy more 23¢ stamps.

It turns out that according to one of the inmates who works in the library (the guy in the bunk next to me) tonight is not a good night to turn in the books. The other inmate, the one I have done several hours of walking the track with, told me to let Frank know about the books so he could tell me if now was a good time to do it.

Do not worry about sending the next batch of books; it will work out. I am a little behind in my reading right now, so after you send this next batch, if you would hold off for a few weeks I would appreciate it. The reason is one that is actually a new one for me; I am working on keeping my locker as neat as possible.

This will actually be the third file on this page, but this time I remembered to put it in the print mode.

The other reason that print mode is necessary is that it is the only way I know when I have hit the end of the page. The margin at the bottom of each page will vary since I will usually end at a paragraph end and still allow for any additional words I may have added.

I am not sure WTF is going on; it is now 9:10 PM and I am just typing the draft of page three. The preceding page decided to do all kinds of strange stuff including paragraphs inserting themselves inside other paragraphs. Well, hopefully this page will go smoother.

I also noted that what was at least half of a spool of ribbon yesterday is now almost gone. Back to the carbon paper. The carbon paper lays down a pretty thick layer of ink. When I type on the opposite side, I need to be sure to put a second sheet of paper in. If not, the roller picks up the ink and the next plain piece of paper comes out with ghosts on the reverse side. Have I spent enough time outlining all the problems I am having tonight?

I am now starting a new page; I should proof and type the other page first but I do not want to lose my train of thought.

9:45 PM count time. I will bring everything back to my bed now to finish.

Okay, count is done and I still have one other thing to put in this letter and to actually review what you said in your letter.

Oops, I put the leftover mushrooms in with jalapeño peppers to keep them fresh so now I have HOT mushrooms. Great, right before bedtime and my mouth is on fire.

Life does not get better than this.
