I am slowly getting acclimated to my new environment. Today I had a bowl of corn meal and two pieces of toast for breakfast, a cheese sandwich, the alternate selection, for lunch and the turkey salad around 7:00 PM for dinner.
By skipping their 4:00 PM dinner, I can kill two birds with one stone. One bird being the healthy food I supply, and the poor second dead bird is that by not eating at 4:00 PM and then being hungry and having something else around 8:00 PM, well that is better for me also. So hopefully the two dead birds gave their life for a good cause.
I hope you understand that my last letter to you was not meant to be in any way critical of you attitude to me (negative waves and all).
I am grateful for any letters you write and as I have said, it is not the length but the frequency that I appreciate. So while I know how it is once you start typing, one tends to keep going, but not every letter has to be an opus!
Okay, so if I make a correction in a line that pushes past the margin, then it does an automatic line feed, and still puts the original line feed in. All I did was add a comma, and bingo, turkey ended up all by itself.
There are no hard and soft returns. When you type using the non-printing mode, the only returns are the ones I put at the end of each paragraph. I could go back into the file when making the corrections and delete all the non-hard returns, but now we are back to too much screwing around.
I know, I hear you muttering, "But Pete, you do have all that free time!" Well, there comes a point where my eyes glaze over and I am not paying any real attention to what is going on. Like you can tell from my last letter.
Well the only time I would have to delete any returns is if I make any additions that push it past the margin. In this case it was just that one ','.
I am enclosing something I typed a while ago and am not sure if I sent it to you.
Count time 9:45 PM. I was at the table and am now back on my bed for the count. Okay the count has cleared so let me finish this up and get it into the mail.
