  The Two Year Long Post!
Well the year is winding down. It is now 3:05 PM here at my wonderful humble abode. I am not going to watch any of the movies this weekend.

I just wrapped up the last step in a legal proceeding I have been working on for a fellow inmate. We will now be waiting till the end of January, 2006 to see what the opposition says. Then sometime after the first week in February, 2006 he will get an answer. If the court rules in the inmate's favor, he will be released immediately. If he does win, he should have been released back in September, 2005. He would have been in prison five months longer than necessary.

Further to be somewhat modest, okay not modest at all, if it were not for my free and very talented assistance he would not have gotten out at all. The kudos may be a little premature, but the point to remember is that the prison system can do things that would be found illegal in the courts but as an inmate in the system you must either have the resources to hire a lawyer or do it yourself.

There is the possibility you might be lucky enough to find another inmate to help you, but that is at best discouraged by the prison authorities or deemed an illegal act and opens up the helper inmate to disciplinary proceedings. It is illegal for one inmate to receive funds from another inmate, but that is one of those things that does go on within the walls. The problem in is that the majority of the time the ones taking money for legal services do not often obtain positive results. I do not charge any inmate for the assistance I offer.

The plan is to work through the next three days (Saturday, Sunday and Monday) and then mail a nice fat envelope to my editor. I will be holding this post open to allow me to add a recap of how well I did at generating posts for all your reading enjoyment.

For now, I am going to get ready for the last meal of the year. It is not a special meal and I am going just for the 'Homemade' brownie. I will be cooking something to eat a little later on tonight.

After the brownie snack, I will begin to work on the growing to-do pile of things I want to write about.
Now the second part of the post written a year later, 2006. See how time flies when you are having fun. The preceding paragraphs were written on December 31, 2005. I managed to create six pages of posts that needed to be proofed and printed.
