I want to thank you for all your recent mailings.
I do not know if you are being purposeful in sending what seems to be more frequent mailings or not. But it certainly 'feels' that there have been more envelopes coming from you lately.
I purposely used the word 'feel'. At one point I was attempting to keep track of the days I sent and received letters. Like a lot of the day to day type record keeping tasks, I have not kept up with that.
I am not keeping score. I know I mention from time to time when your letters seem to slow down, so I should certainly mention when I notice an increase.
Here is the question. Are you aware of sending more frequent letters? If yes, then it is a good thing I notice. If you are not aware of any change, it still goes to show how two people can have two different views of a common experience. That is the point of this letter.
I did type four pages of posts last night but after stopping to cook dinner at 8:30 PM, I did not have the emotional energy to come back and do the proof and print thing.
I was affected by the negative comment by the guy that allegedly has a brother who is doing ten years plus in a maximum level prison. I will work on my response to him over the weekend because it has triggered an entire range of emotions, and needs to be answered since you sort of chimed in on his comments. I will do it, but it is not something I can just sit down and type.
By the way, are you sure you sent fifteen books? I only received eleven. There was only one basketball book. If you did send the fifteen, then I guess some officer liked a couple of the books.
Maybe the next shipment you should label each book "Book 1 of 15", "Book 2 of 15" etc. That would seem to be easier than typing up a shipping list. They might just need a gentle reminder of what they are supposed to put into my brown bag for delivery.
I finished one of the romance books and the first half of the book the interaction between the male and female characters is based on each one misinterpreting the other's intention. They are both afraid to allow themselves to fall in love.
