  Rule # 26:
Radios, tape players, typewriters, and musical instruments are for use in cubes only, and must be used with ear phones.

I am obeying the rule, sitting in my cube, typing this letter to you and I have my ear phones on. I could not find anyplace to plug the ear phones into my typewriter so I figured I might as well plug them into my radio and enjoy the Sunday Big Band Show starting now on the single radio station I get.

Part of the reason for the posts only letters might be due to the funk I am in, and the lack of anything personal happening in my life lately. I know you have been busy, but the lack of any consistent incoming mail has sort of caused me to shut off emotionally.

This is not meant to be a criticism of the lack of your letters. It just has been a really dry month.

Another thing might be my concern about you posting something in a letter that I thought was not going to end up in blog. Not sure if that is really that much of a big deal.

In fact it is looking like I will not be including any posts in this letter, so please feel free to put any of this letter on the blog unless I label a paragraph as "No Blog".

I realize after re-reading my returned letter that I can write a nice reading letter. I also see that there are a few typos in the letter that I would normally catch if I was typing a draft first.

The problem is that lately I have not had all that much time to draft the letter, proof it, edit, and then reprint. It does take upwards of fifteen minutes to do the corrections and reprinting.

The one error that does really drive me crazy is typing 'so' instead of 'do'! That is just another of those faulty synapse things I think. I had a thought the other day that in theory I could type all my letters as if I had the Dvorak layout and then when you did the OCR you would translate it. Just kidding about that though.
