We spent the whole day locked in our rooms. I am not sure of the reason, but one rumor was that some inmate got stabbed during the breakfast hour (6:00 AM to 7:00 AM) and we got locked in at 7:30 AM. They finally let us out into the day area at 5:00 PM, but we will not be going anywhere.
Since I do not go to breakfast, this means I will not be outside for over thirty hours! Kind of like the County jail.
The nice part was having the room to myself. I finished off "The Deceiver" by Frederick Forsyth, one of the books you recently sent.
I will be taking a shower in a bit, and then heading back to bed. I am catching up on some much needed rest. I still have trouble sleeping most nights, and find I do better on the "sleep a little, wake a little" plan. One would think that after more than eight years I would have adjusted by now, but, alas, I have not!
I hope the last three letters (including this one) have made it to you directly. I will get in the habit of not making such grand productions of my communication with you. I will use the typewriter when I can, but not limit myself to it, since it would appear that adds to the likelihood of putting too much time between letters.
