Hello, Pinky. Thank you very much for posting some love on my blog. I appreciate more than you realize. Before I answer all of your questions, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas. I'm sure all the snow makes Christmas beautiful. I lived in Denver, Colorado when I was 9 years old, so I know it is is to live in a gang of snow.

I really liked your first comment. Why you never got back to me, I wonder. Sorry about the paper, but I don't have lined paper right now. I'm waiting on a manila envelope with a writing tablet and two books of forever stamps.

Pinky, I'm enclosing my address here at Vacaville so you can write to me. I won't take all these months for us to tack. You're a cool chick, and there's some things I want to teach you. I'm sure that as our friendship grows, I will learn from you as well. There isn't nothing better than picking up game. That's how we get wiser with each friend we get to know. I like your style.

Okay, anyhow, it's time to answer my blog. The way you put info on my blog is perfect. We will start writing from my cell to whatever P.O. Box address you send me. That way it doesn't take months for us to tack. Nice to hear back from you as well. Thank you. And Pinky, sorry it took so long for us to answer each other. Today is December 9th, and I'll be waiting for a response from your street hook up. I'm going to write to you as long as you allow it. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't disrespecting your man and all. I honor people's relationships, and I could allow my girl to write a dude in prison without jealousy.

Yeah, it sucks that the "Sheapel followers" don't show how we are being held hostage in prison in CA and whatever states that act like CA. We lifers do our time and the board still won't let us out. I haven't yet been to the board, but I plan on it.

That's really cool that you have a 20-year-old son and I'm very sorry to hear about your daughter.

Wow, Pinky, I didn't realize that Wisconsin had a lot of prisons in it. There is a 33 adult state prisons in CA. Mass fed, joints, and honor farms jails up the ass criminals in the frozen state. I guess that criminals are everywhere.

Pinky, yeah, you should write Scott Pinkerton, known as Reckless. He's my brother and he is now in another prison. He is in Lancaster, a max security level 4 prison. He could always use a hit on his blog. Tell him I said hi.

That's funny that you said you were a '80s hair junkie. Did you know that Scott Weiland, the lead singer of the Stone Temple Pilots, died a few days ago? He was a good singer. It sucks that he OD'ed.

Yes, there is a faster way to write me than using my site. Here's my address:

Donnie Tinsley H-71715
California Medical Facility
P.O. Box 2000 U-304
Vacaville, CA 95696-2000

Put that address in your book and write me soon so I will have your hook up.

I feel that I need to tell you something. Look, Pinky, I just want you to know that I'm a convict. I was also taught manners when I was a citizen. I'm saying all this to say that I want you to know from that stance that I won't ever ask you for $—things like that. I don't believe in using females on the streets like most every dude does. I'm just not a fan of working women for what I can get. If I was on the street, I would be trying my best to get your clothes off—if you were single. But many men probably try that.

Anyhow, I just wanted you to realize that I won't be that dude bothering you to send $. I need it, I'm in a wreck, etc. Dudes in the joint work females daily. It's not cool. Not me, Pinky.

That's funny that you thought snail mail was slow. I didn't realize that it is taking months to answer each other. I thought my blog was a lot faster than that.

Hey, I love that you're a warped girl. You're funny. That's so fucking badass. Having a sense of humor is hot, Pinky. Oh yes.

I'm waiting on pics from you. Can you mail me like fifteen photos at a time? 5x7 is the biggest. Wallet size is cool. Actually, I like photos bigger than wallet size. Too bad there's limits on photos. You're right, no nude photos. But I can have swimsuit and bikini shots. As long as you have a bra and panties/thong, I can have them.

Yes, Pinky. I can also see us being good pen-pals. We can be good friends. I do love the snow bunnies in Wisconsin. I've never known anyone from there, Pinky. Once you get to know me, yo're going to want to come visit me. And you can, if you ever want to. Come to California. But it is a law for you to write me. It's our law, my friend.

Well, you have my address so you can write as much as you want. Your letter takes like three days to get to this prison. I get my letters in a week or less. I love to write, and I have a lot to tell you about a lot of shit. Did you know that in the last prison, I was at the first time I used a cell? I didn't know how to use the damned thing. Crazy, huh?

This is a five page letter. I have a few other people to get at. My niece, Cindy, wrote to me. And a lady named Ann.

Pinky, after all these years I've been locked up, do you think that I should have been married? Or at least, a good ol' man to some nice female? I have been single all of these years, and it's not been easy. I have always had females when I was out there. I always got a girlfriend. I was a very cute kid. I'm doing good for U.S. I exercise and that's important. The girls still think I'm tasty, so that's cool. The problem is I haven't been laid since 1994, so I've forgotten about how good it really is. I try not to think about it.

Well, anyhow, Pinky, I wrote you a small five page novel. Hope to hear from you soon. I want you to have a nice time on Christmas. Have a Happy New Year. I'll hear from you in 2016. Let's have fun with each other in 2016. I wish I had a cell so I could send you some photos of me. Shit, honestly, I wouldn't know how to use the camera part.

Be good, Pinky. Hope to hear from you soon.
