I went to brunch at 8:30 am. Then layed around and watched football.
Then went to dinner at 5:00 pm. I had: fried chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravey, yams, fruit salad, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie w/whiped cream.
It was actually pretty darn good! I was thankful.
Then I came back, hopped up on my bunk, and watched Chicago beat Green Bay! Who knew???
From 7-7:30pm, there was a live band made up of inmates who played a few songs in the dayroom.
I’ve never seen that before…not in the unit dayroom! It was cool. They were good.
But wait!!! The festive events arn’t over yet…
Today (Friday) was the start of several tournaments. I entered the Dominoe tournament. I won my first match and advanced in the bracket.
Then I subbmitted my name for the Pie Eating Contest. Outta 60 submittions…I got randomly selected. I ate one Chocolate Cream pie in 1:28! That was good enough for 1st place! By 5 seconds!!! I got a big ribbon that says: 2015 PIE EATING CHAMPION
Then the whole unit played BINGO for bags of homemade cookies. I was sitting at a table w/two other guys. We all agreed that if anyone of us win…we’ll split the cookies 3 ways. One of us won!!! The cookies were delicious.
I am so thankful for life.
No matter where we are…life is what we make of it.
The great joy of life comes into my soul, flooding me with love and thanksgiving.
I do not grieve or feel sorry for myself, because nothing is lost or gone from me.
I have friends and family who love me. I have the most sensitive, loving, wife in the world. I have inner peace with a spirit of love and appreciation.
No matter where I am, or where I go, peace, love, and serenity will follow me.
I keep my friends and family in my heart…they are always with me.
I am filled with the joy of living and the great peace that comes to all who believe in the power of love.
Happy Holidays To Everyone!
Enjoy your blessings & love your family.
