Hello, Anne.

I got a set of comments left on my blog, and one of them was you. Thank you for taking time out of your life to talk with me. I appreciate it so much.

Yeah, I know it does take a very long time for us to correspond through my blog. Sorry. If you want the address to my prison cell, let me know and give me an address to you on the streets. Mail take three days anywhere in the U.S. I'm writing other friends to a P.O. Box and addresses since it takes over one month for responses with my Between the Bars friends. So if you are like me and want mail responses, then let's write to each other's real addresses. I'm giving my address to use if you want to. If you just want to use my blog to correspond, that's great too. It's just very slow.

My address is:

Donald Tinsley H-71715
P.O. Box 2000
Vacaville, CA 95696

Sorry about the handwriting and the no-lined paper. I ran out of writing paper, so I'm using what I got.

Yes, Between the Bars does take their own sweet time address our mail, but I love the company they provide my blog. I respect that. I like anyone who is pro-inmate. I wish all the people running for the president chair was.

Wow, I didn't know some inmates have an email option. Wow, that sucks that CA won't allow us to do the email thing. Email is what, just a message that gets sent to your own what computer? I'm so dumb when it comes to technology. I have been in a cage for 23 years, Anne. They keep us down but not out.

I didn't know that English isn't your language. What is it, Spanish? Hope you don't mind me asking. Between the Bars, I gather, uses a carrier for spell checks. If you spoke or wrote in say Chinese, Between the Bars would translate your comments to me in English. Anne, I like all comments that you have left for me so far. I'm very interested in finding out what your first language is. I would love to learn your language if you had time to teach me, even if it was just enough for us to correspond. Every person who I've corresponded with was English speaking/writing. You're the first who isn't and that makes it even more interesting.

I'll be waiting for a month or so when I hear back from you. Who knows? You could speak in an Asian language or Spanish. Whatever it is, it isn't English and I can't wait to hear back from you.

Anne, I'm going to mail this off now. Who knows how long until your actually get to read it.

Write soon, Anne.

Your friend,
