Thats what my man said also, that there are some really sick people walking around there (and not just physically sick). I just cant´t figure out how they are getting hold of drugs in there. Guess I am still naive.

I always mail him a lot of news info, copies of newspaper articles etc. There are many things going on right now...not all of them good. It gives him the opportunity to stay informed and he has other things to think about apart from prison life. He has a new stack of that stuff coming.

I agree Barbara.

At this very moment I am printing inspirational quotes and poems just bought 2 cards to uplift my man's spirits. Along with texting uplifting quotes daily.

I know you will agree with this statement. I will be so glad when this chapter is over.

I'm praying for these guys. Prison is a sad place.

Hang Tight Ladies

Received a quick call. My guy confirmed many guys have and are overdosing. He has no idea when the LD will be over. They let them out for showers and will be locking them back in shortly. Then the phone cut off.

I mailed my guy some stuff today.

I'm praying for these men.

Hang Tight Ladies..

Hi, I received a call and email as well. He said the same that 14 people overdosed last week and they let them out for a couple hours to shower. Also that the food has been horrific. I really hope the lockdown ends this week

Another call. Showers and calls every 2 to 3 days.. Hubs said the LD could last 2-3 weeks. At least they are allowed to shower, call for a couple minutes and go to the store.

Things are slowly picking up.

Got a call from my man. He said he thinks LD is over. Visiting is still off though, I checked on their website.
We cannot send anymore greeting cards, colored paper or colored envelopes. Letters with stains on them will be returned to sender and no more perfume spraying on the letters either (I used to do that once in a while). They found envelopes/Paper sprayed with bugspray or other chemicals that get people high. Its always the same, some idiots spoil it for everybody else.

I got a call too. My guy said he doesn't know how long this will last either.

Darn I just sent 2 cards in red envelopes and letters with perfume on them. I guess I'll be getting them back.

Someone always spoils it for the rest of us. At what point will a person realize their actions not only affect them but everyone else too. Especially in prison.

I pray they don't ban open mouth kissing at the end of visits.

My last visit the CO announced watches can no longer be worn inside.

Barbara how often do you visit?

I can only visit every 2 years or so. I live in Germany and having to fly over, pay for a hotel and rental car is always quite expensive. I figured its better I send all that money to him so we can stay in touch and he can buy what he needs. Cannot do both unfortunately...send money every month AND visit him. I wish I could.

It is expensive.. Airfare is the highest expense. Hotels are rather reasonable and car rentals too.

The hotel is 6 minutes from the prison. My guy's cell faces the hotel. He swears he can see me.. Lol.

I plan to visit NYE's weekend. I've reserved the room and hotel. Prices were reasonable to my surprise.

I try to visit every 3 months but like you, I have other expenses to handle. He's one of them. But he's modest with money.

Default Update

Just got off the phone with Hubs..

Staff is calling the guys back into their cells. Maybe another lockdown. He did mention more OD occurred.

My guy said if I don't hear from him by the 10pm central time. They are locked down.

No news regarding visitation this weekend as yet. The red banner is not displayed on the bopsite as yet.


Hang Tight Ladies. I will keep you posted

My guy sent a email saying there will be another LD due to more drug problems. (People smoking paper soaked with bugspray, pfff) Idiots.
This may be even longer if the problem continues.

6 minutes from the prison sounds good. Whats the name of the hotel? I did check some of them out (while I was daydreaming). You are right, its the plane that is the most expensive.

Oh no. That is awful. My brother said he doesn't understand why they're punishing everyone. Just put the drug abusers in solitary

Our call lasted 57 seconds...a new record!
But the banner is still up on their website. So, I don´t know when things will be back to normal.
