I thought about Tim and his plight on his first anniversary day, 4 December, but, of course, couldn't call in to him.
Got a call from him 2 days ago and he seems to be doing okay. He says he's making wooden bowls in the craft shop as gifts for people. Postage costs are always an issue, so please consider mailing him in a money order for his costs and for commissary expenses for general things. Please also remember him with Christmas (/holiday) cards, just so he knows he's not forgotten.
He's going to start making recorders in the craft shop soon. Again costs incur for the wood itself, as he has to buy specialized woods for things like that from the outside.
He always wants to hear news from the outside and he likes articles and things like that, but they have to be loose pages, no more than 10 pages per envelope (so try to copy on both sides of the pages).
That's all from Milan Road, Berlin for now.
