  No jailbreak, the "escapee" was found inside!
Since you are reading this in typed form, one would be correct in assuming that we are indeed no longer in lock down condition.

The real story is that an inmate decided to play hide and seek by somehow prying open a 5'x2' access panel that leads to the pipe chase behind the showers. I am not sure when they actually found him, but they did.

This morning we were locked in until around 10:30 AM. During the morning they welded a 5' metal strip on each of the 24 panels, and then let us out for lunch. They served hot dogs for lunch, but I had my usual mackerel and rice, albeit heated due to the availability again of the microwave in the unit.

We eventually had work call at 1:15 PM. The door to the tool room was locked until around 2:30 PM. My co-workers are getting sort of pissed off at me for getting stuck in the crossfire since it was the SV that skipped opening up the room at the work call.

I did receive the five books today and will certainly pass the joke books around. It is amazing how some of the gross jokes were indeed around when we were kids. True, the book is copyrighted 1983, but the point is I heard the jokes. This book would certainly never have been in my Mom and Dad's ibrary, but then again the ex-in-laws would have liked it. Wait a minute, that's probably where I heard a few of these jokes.

So now things are back to normal around here. I am hungry, but I know I better walk tonight or else. I think that is what I will do now. It is 6:00 PM and they are about to have the first move back, so to avoid the temptation to go back to the unit I will go out now and walk till at least 7:00 PM and then come back in and type a few more lines while waiting for the 7:30 move, or maybe I will walk even longer, and stay down here till 8:30 PM. The cop that usually kicks everyone out at 8:00 PM is not here tonight. So off to walk I go.

Well, I did five laps in 27:30 and one more in 6:30. Then I ran out of gas! I came in and popped opened a can of mackerel, drained off the oil, and mixed it with some mustard and Mrs. Dash. I devoured that and decided to make a bowl of rice and have another can of mackerel. So now that the rice is soaking and it is now 7:16, I guess I will stay till 8:30 PM. I need to drop over to Education on the 7:30 move and then will come back and write some more.
Hi Pete! Greetings from Cocoa Beach, Florida!

Just wanted to let you know that I'm still reading your blog, although it has recently rotated off of the "Blogs of Note" list. Also thought I might mention to you that the FDA (or some other health-related government agency) basically says to keep your fish intake down to like once a week - basically because of a study on mercury levels in ocean fish. Of course, as with most government studies, it's probably just bullshit.

As a novelty, I'm also writing this comment in the middle (well the north end of) hurricane Jeanne. Right now the wind outside is roughly 60 mph, gusting a bit higher, as the storm is moving closer to us from the south. I've got updates posted in my blog, but they're pretty much the old boring "it's getting windier and rainier" kind of thing. Amusingly enough, due to my own haste I cranked the storm shutter in the wrong direction and got it jammed up, and there's no way I'm going to try and repair it out there - so now I'm watching the storm through the sliding glass doors. I digress.

Just wanted to say "Hello" and wish you well - good luck, Pete! I'll send some jokes as soon as I get a chance!
