Prison Pete

Sunday, September 12, 2004
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.
Hello. Interesting blog. Can you leave me a comment so I can find you again? I want to read more when I'm not so exhausted.

I'm in Florida and have been struggling with these bloody hurricanes. I'm wiped out.
I came across your blog and i thought it was interesting that you were a prison inmate. I didn't think ya'll got to do stuff like this. I have always thought of prison as this place where you were locked up most of the time and had some occasions where you got out to eat and exercise but that was about it. I guess i kinda wanta know what it's like. Not that i would ever want to go there but i am just curious. Do you regret the decisions you've made in your life? What did you do to get there? What made you do it? How has this experience changed your life? I always think my life is so rough but I could have it much worse. Not that i'm saying i feel sorry for you cause i don't. You obviously did something wrong and needed to be punished. Unless you are innocent and then i do pity you. But i am sure you have had lots of time to think about what you've done with your life. Alright well i better go. I have many things to do. Please comment on my blog and answer my questions.
