  Wide Feet.
I got your eight books today. Thank you.

I see you have taken my "do not rush to write" suggestion, since I have not gotten any letter from you since your letter two weeks ago. I am assuming it is your busy schedule and not my lame attempt at humor that is causing the drought.

I spent two hours walking the mud-free yard this morning and have done severe damage to my toes. The state-provided sneakers are called walkers and have a great arch support. The fact that they are only EEEEE width instead of EEEEEE is a major problem. It is said you get three benefits from walking: cardio workout, burning off some calories, and the release of endorphins.

At the end of the first hour the pain in my toes was negating any hope of getting some of those endorphins to help raise my blue mood. After coming back in and putting on the flat Keds wanna-bes, well that really threw my feet and ankles into a strange pain/what the hell are you up to now cycle.

I am going to walk tomorrow if the rain holds off, but I am afraid I must return to the size fourteen no-support canvas sneakers. I am going to try to get them to buy me the right size.

I am not sure if I have asked you this before, but if you could look for a company called "Hitchcock Shoes" and get them to send me a catalog I would appreciate it. That was the company Club Fed brought my boots from. At this point I would settle for the same pair of boos and let the sneakers go.

Also, while speaking of catalogs, I would appreciate a Staples or Office Depot catalog, provided you could request one without any cost to you. If you get your hands on one, you could include it with you next book order.

It appears that the second Hamilton order I have been waiting for got returned. My Dad got the confirmation that it was sent, but I have not seen it yet. The bummer is that it included the crossword puzzle book I like, along with the NY Times Puzzle dictionary so I could start working on the Wednesday through Sunday puzzles. I have asked my Dad to send me the order confirmation so I can follow-up.

I am still waiting for the damn courts to figure out if I qualify as a poor person and send me some answers so I can get started on the paperwork. Hey, the clock is running, it is my time now and I want to get out of here!

I was so out of it this week that when I filled out my commissary sheet I marked down thirty cans of Regular Coke instead of the Diet!

I had a pita bread cheese sandwich for lunch today and will be taking a break shortly to make some tuna fish with crackers for dinner. Then I will take my shower and come back over to type. The NY Philharmonic concert tonight includes Ravel's Bolero, so that will be my entertainment from 8:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. tonight.

They did not show any movies this weekend due to technical difficulties, but ran them Monday through Wednesday. One was "Cookout", a reshowing of "Alien Vs. Predator", and the third movie was "Saw". I managed to skip all three.

Okay I am back. Showered and fed. I am real tired, no real nap at all today. I will probably try to write a few short posts and see how it goes.
