  And Now....
Well it is now 5:10 PM. I did finish off a five page letter to one of my pen pals, and have completed my commissary shopping and put away the food.

I finished off the pint of mint chip ice cream. I purchase a seven piece frozen Banquet Chicken package, southern style. I had purchased a box last commissary for the first time.

One of my fellow inmates, who has been in prison since 1988, was willing to give me stamps for half the cost of a box, $4.09. He was on commissary restriction at the time and was unable to buy it directly. I did not really enjoy it all that much and was not going to buy it again.

But as soon as the inmate saw me with my commissary sheet he handed me another six stamps for his share of a box of chicken. I admit that I did not have the heart to tell him I was not going to buy any chicken this week.

I am allowing the chicken to defrost a little more. I ended up with one leg, one thigh and one breast piece. I have also had one twelve ounce can of Dr. Pepper.

At mail call today (3:30 PM) I was notified that I will be having a blood test in the morning and should not eat anything after midnight. That is not a problem but it figures my one day of eating a whole bunch of unhealthy foods, and BAM the blood test comes up.

Well if some of the tests come out on the high side I now have an excuse, and if they are normal, I would feel even better since it would be after loading up on the bad stuff. I figure I win either way.

I have finished the Monday NY Times Crossword Puzzle, and read some of both Sunday and Monday papers. Now let me see if I can get another letter out and then be sure to proof the four posts all before lights out at 10:00 PM.

I have a bunch of food posts to do but that will have to wait until tomorrow.

Let me get back to the letter writing. I will wrap this multi-part post up right before printing out the final copy to see how much I was able to accomplish today, an unexpected day off from the rigors of the fix-em up, and build it department.

It is now a little after 8:00 PM. I have typed out a one page letter to my editor along with three other posts. I am fading fast and am wrapping it up for the night. I will continue to work at my letter writing backlog so all my faithful pen pals will be getting letters over the next few days.

As Bugs Bunny always said at the end of his show, "That's All Folks."
