  June was a bummer month!
I finished off another of the books you sent in less than twenty-four hours. I managed to crank up the typewriter and take care of a few posts, and a few in-house questions I needed answers to.

I have been keeping up with the weekday papers. The Sunday issues are now being kept on a separate "to be read" pile. I managed to finish off Wednesday's crossword puzzle without any help from the puzzle dictionary! I can now usually finish Thursday with help and sometimes Fridays. I hope to some day do them all without help. Time will tell. Certainly doing them each day as opposed to ripping them out and collecting them is a better way to approach the goal.

This month has turned out to be emotionally a real bummer, finished off by the lack of visit from Mom and Dad. The funny part is some of this feeling is very much deja vu. That is when the emotional part of life sucks, I go for the mechanical and technical stuff which I am good at and does not really involve putting your emotions at risk.

Got to go check the ice machine - be right back.

The machine is now only dumping the ice when I trigger it manually. I will probably have to unplug it once I am going to bed else it will freeze over during the night!

Well it is already 9:30 PM and I still have one more note to type to my counselor. I missed an appointment with her on Friday. They usually highlight all the names of people in out unit on the daily call out sheet, but somehow they (an inmate) missed my name on the list of people that needed to see this one counselor.
