Happy Thanksgiving! Mine was no good without a family to share it with. I miss everyone a bunch. I am trying my best not to go crazy in here. Reading the Bible is the only thing that really keeps me from going crazy. I pray that I can keep reading daily when I get out, b/c I know it won’t be easy. I also pray daily that I hurry up and get out. The next best thing to getting out would be fore me to get out of lock down. That is supposed to take anywhwere from 20-40 days. I have gas right now!! (stank too, ha ha ha!) I haven’t heard from anyone yet and I can’t wait to hear from yall. And they say I can get as many pictures and letters as I want, so give Chad my addres and tell him to give it out. And you give it to the rest of the family, and tell everyone to write away b/c I get my hopes up everyday when the mail comes and I haven’t gotten a letter yet. They took like $5 or $6 for sending my clothes home and that’s all I can spend until I get out of lockup. They also say that you have to pick up the clothes from the post office. Has Kashti had the baby, if not how is she? What did my lawyer say about the appeal bond? Can I get one now? I’m sending some visit forms with this letter, I hope you get them. I can have only 3 visitors after the 23rd of December. And you have to call and set it up. It is also required that all prisoners get DNA Testing now too. I think I’m getting mine tom. morning. (11-29-04) And they charge $250.00. So everytime you send money they will take out $10 or 10% of what you send until it is paid off. Some of my belongings are getting stolen when we got to eat. People steal socks, boxers, towels, razors, envelopes to trade for cigarettes. (roll ups) My roomate gave most of his things away in like the first four days. He got mad when I wouldn’t give him an envelope to write his family. I told him that he made up his mind that roll ups were more important than writing his family & friends when he gave all of his away. I do not trust him at all! B/c if he puts roll ups before his family, I’m sure he’d have problem putting them before me. I hope I don’t catch him, b/c I’ll probably have to do 72 hours of lockdown for beating him up. I pray every time I leave for God to watch over my things. I even remembered to bless my food on time today. I was proud of myself. I think I am getting a cold or something b/c my nose has been running steady for about 3 days now. The days are going by really slow in lock-up. I stay in my bed at least 22 hours a day. There is no room for us to be up. And yesterday it was sooo hot in here my sheets were wet from me sweating. They wouldn’t turn the heat down! I think about you and everyone else all day long. The only other thing to do is read the Bible and Christian books. My goal is to read the whole New Test before I leave. I also need some toe nail clippers b/c my toenails are getting long. And they don’t give out lotion in jail either, so I am ashy! If I don’t get to write anymore until I get out of here keep on sending me letters! I will not complain one bit.
