Afternoon, just got your last letter
re; phones and the frustration of people being led by them and grafted to them!
Yeah, men in particular tend to be glued to the TV during football. Once I had the whole gym to myself because of this. What peace and quiet. Yeah the phones are definitely life lines in this place but I can take it or leave it. Did twenty years without it so... Plus the call is only fifteen minutes, so by the time the conversation gets going it's time to hang up, especially when talking to moms. The you can't "call right back" because you have to wait an hour if you don't get a ticket. Mind you, I'm under a law where a ticket means another 6 months to a year in prison. NO!
Phones not worth my freedom.
Its nice out, 40, so everybody went outside so phones are open, so I might call moms... Promised her I would try to call more.

Was elated to hear you're considering buying a bible this week. So have you? Nothing catch your attention?
For me there's a lot of wisdom in it, definitely helped me with my character and helps me have a positive outlook on life and others. Plus it comforts me in my lonely times, and even blesses me with words of encouragement/affirmation, and even ideas etc. I constantly pray, "God bless the reading so I can remain teachable. Help me see something I haven't seen before."

Well I confess I was a religious zealots in the beginning and sometimes have it attack me! Why?
Brought baggage into my relationship wit God. Having come from a culture that said if you're not with me, you're against me.
I'm overcoming it

Can you post up your full doc number and the address of your facility. I’ve tried looking on internet but can’t locate you? Are you in Wisconsin somewhere?
