Thursday, November 24, 2005 Thanksgiving Day.
6:45 PM and I am just sitting down to type. Bummer. I need to stop waiting for the last minute.
This is the second attempt at writing. I took the typewriter out of its box and then put it back in. I was going to write out the draft of what I would be typing and pondered that for a few minutes, then went back to taking out the typewriter, and here I am working on the typed draft.
We had about six to eight inches of snow today. I spent the noon to 1:00 hour this afternoon walking in the yard all alone. Peace and quiet!
I did get a nice large envelope from BobbieLou on Wednesday, and will send her out something in mail tonight.
It will have to be handwritten since as you will see from the enclosed post I still need to cook some food because the promised roast turkey dinner they served at 4:30 was more like a turkey SPAM!
Even the County Jail served Turkey for Thanksgiving. At this time last year I was having my last holiday meal at Club Fed. It has now been one year since I left that place.
I am not at all mad, as the number one thing I have learned is that I can not allow another person to hold my emotions captive. Yes others can have an effect on how I feel, but then it is within my power to move forward.
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, and assume you got to enjoy a four day weekend. By the way, I think I forgot to mention that I did catch the bit of business news a few weeks back where your wonderful employer sold off a database product line.
It is an interesting time of year. It is hard to ignore the holidays yet I certainly have enough writing to do to keep my mind occupied. I know I have been slack on answering back your letters, but I will.
I also need to start creating the Christmas cards I want to send. I will need a few more than last year, and want to get them out by the December 10th so that I will get some back!
Well let me put this aside and see how much more I can type out for posting.
