  What about the blog?
The other thing is the blog. My initial thought was that I would give you specific, typed stuff to post and that all you would have to do is scan and post. True, I did not know exactly how the mechanics would work, but I did not think it would be a big deal.

Correct me if I am wrong on this next part, but before I knew what was happening, you had taken the idea, posted a bunch of my letters and then paid to have all my old letters typed. This turned into a big deal and one that has not really abated.

I know some day I am going to really appreciate all you efforts to get my chicken scratch ramblings into not only type, but electronic type at that. Yes, even now, I do understand the extraordinary effort, but when I get out, the idea of a book is so much farther advanced thanks to an inordinate amount of time and dollars on your part.

Count time! Count time is done and I now have forty minutes till chow. Two small fried chicken legs. Think of catering hall appetizers.

As far as the blog goes, I am wondering if a paid option would make your life any easier. I am still not sure if I have been clear on releasing my identity. I am not afraid of being here. I am OK as long as we do not post too many negative remarks about the staff. As I explained to Mom and Dad, if I say more than two words to an officer at one time, and speak to more than two officers a day, that is a lot.

I was thinking that a blog with an email form built in to prevent junk mail, with my name and contact information would not be a bad thing. That would preclude anyone being able to post anything that others could read.

I am thinking that when you have people use a screen on the site to send mail that eliminates junk mail. I do not know what is best way to do any of this. What I am suggesting is that if you want to continue to post my ramblings I want to make it as easy as can be for you.

I actually do have over six pages handwritten for Summer, but as you have said, using you as an intermediary is not an option. Some of my latest blog posts are somewhat time-relevant, and I am not sure why I would write some of the stuff if it were not for the blog.

I of course will always write you, and that would include all the dirt to put in a book at some point in the future. That is still not the reason I would write to you. You are a friend and I have no intention of losing contact with you again. Our relationship has grown and despite the barriers, I know that we are both better for the exchange of letters.

I do not see a problem with you giving out my name to someone who has been a long-time blog reader or poster. You are still anonymous.
I know I don't post often, but I've read the bulk of your blog. I just wanted you to know that you continue to be in my prayers. :)
