Postcard from a Prisoner

It’s great to connect with people in prison. These books give them something to hope for, ideas for things they can do for themselves once they get out.

We sent the two requested books yesterday.

(I whited out the prisoner’s full name here.)

Note: We continue to send books free of charge to any prisoner who so requests.

Gambrel Roof Home, Corvallis, Oregon

This was in a large field, maybe 2 acres. It looks like it could be fixed up for living. I always look to see if the eaves are sagging in old buildings; if not, it probably means the foundation is OK. There wasn’t a “for sale” sign, but if I lived up there, I’d track it down. It could be a great home, with a lot of land for gardening, chickens, a few farm animals.

Fixer-upper in Berkeley

This is exactly the kind of building I’d be looking for if I wanted to live in a city (or town) these days. I’d first check to see that the foundation was solid, and there were no rotting floors to deal with.  (The roof looks pretty good, and the eaves do not seem to be sagging, which usually indicates the foundation is not disintegrating.) It would be exciting to fix a place like this up.
