Circle,

Boy this place is getting bad, none of the officers are on the right page.  They gave me another roommate and she’s a little bitch.  She’s young.  She’s got her own t.v. and she won’t put it on the table so that I can see it.  So now I have a roommate that has a t.v. I can’t get a loaner.  This place is turning into a joke, they only build you up so they can bring you down.  They don’t solve anything at these town meetings.  It’s just a wrap session.  They never seem (staff, unit manager) to agree to anything.

I’m going to two A.A. meetings a week that my sponsor does. I’m on step four.

Maybe if you guys would like, I’d bus down and spend the weekend with you guys and go to meetings and Circles.  I’m going to be going to a lot of meetings, and doing counseling.  I don’t want to end up back, I have a lot of time hanging; nine years, four years of probation.  So I’ve really got to buckle down.  I like bow these women only go to the meetings, bi8ble study, just for the check mark.  I go to claim my seat and plus, I’m an alcoholic!

The ladies are having a hissy fit because when commissary came there was no cigs.  Circle, I don’t mean or want to sound like I’m begging, but could you guys please send me some  money? I really need hygiene.  I don’t like using Bob Barker toothpaste, deo, soap.

Boy am I tired.  I think I’ve only slept one night as long as I’ve been in.  I get up once a night, but if I”m up twice I have a hard time getting in gear in the morning.

I guess that the cook is going to go a long with a ham boiled dinner, tonight.  I think that the women here will enjoy that.

Thanks for getting right back to me.  It’s 6:12am and I’m waiting for count.  I just finished my readings that I do every morning: Daily Bread, Daily reflections, as Bill Sees It.  This morning there is a big book meeting that just started where an outsider comes in.

We don’t get the new catalog for the care package until the end of next month, and then I’d have to fill it out and Circle would have to call it in.  But, you guys would need a credit card.  But we do have a very good commissary.  And no, I don’t have any fines or restitution.

The reason why I didn’t want Kennebec County time is because the food was awful, the guards were cocky, the place was filthy.  As far as Pete , he’s go about a year and a half and he can retire.

I’m taking eight different classes.

Hey, you guys told me that Rage’s birthday was happening, but you didn’t say when.  I turned 54 in November.

If you don’t mind, could you guys send me some money for commissary, plus, we can smoke.  $5.84 for 1839s.  I have to bum cigarettes and it’s so hard to find one.

What ever happened to Isaac on Sunday mornings at WMPG?  You guys turned me on to him and he was great, but now he’s gone.

Love,

Miss Linda

Well,

I’m almost done this bid.  112 days left.

Boy, there’s a lot of bullying and saving seats in here.  It’s like kindergarten with these people.  I’m still going to meetings and groups.  I started a writing class; it’s alright.  A little boring.  The one I really enjoyed which we graduated from about two weeks ago was Houses of Healing, a very intense group where you try to find your inner self.  I’ve got about three more classes in Moving oOn, I’ll be graduating the GEAR group.  I’ve got about six more classes in codependency group.  “They” put me in the 18th, I’ll be starting “Seeking Safety”.  I’m in

Sarssm group untill May.  That’s a really good group about trauma.  I’ve got a really great sponsor; she’s got 35 years of sobriety.  She’s taking through this book called “the steps we took.”  She also comes in on Sundays and she’s taking everyone through the Big Book.  April 13th will be my big first year of Sobriety.

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Miss Linda

Well,

I got written up, so I'[m now on cell restriction.  I had my D-board yesterday, and I got four days cell restriction, no loss of good time, plus, I can go to my groups, and meetings.  I got it for passing and recieving.

There’s nothing that i like about Augusta and Kennebec County Jail.  Officer Morrisette was my favorite officer.  All the other guards I really didn’t know.  They hired some.  Officer Cote was alright.  She did the female trustees.  She put me in laundry.  they were good to me when I got my good time.  I had five months in and they gave me 165 days.

I get out, I’m hoping, the first week of June.

Love,

Miss Linda

Hi.

Thank you, Dark Sky Circle, so much for getting right back to me.

It’s 6:12am and I’m waiting for count. I just finished my readings that I do every morning: Daily Bread, Daily Reflections, As Bill Sees It. This morning there is a Big Book meeting that just started where and outsider comes in.

We don’t get the new catalog for the care packages until the end of next month and then I’d have to fill the order sheet out and you guys would call it in, but you’d need a credit card. But we do have a really good commissary and, I don’t have any fines or restitution.

The reason why I didn’t want to do county time at Kennebec County is because the food is awful, the guards are cocky, and the place was filthy. Sheriff Liberty runs a dirty little operation.

Love,

Miss Linda

Hi.

I have a clean slate and I want to stay that way.  I also have a sponsor and I”m doing the steps.  This place is only what you make it.  Me, I want to leave a better person with no baggage.

A while back my roommate and I  made peanut butter balls.  We’re gonna make popcorn balls.

I had five months county and Pete held me up.  He really wanted me to do county time, but I wanted out.  The kennebec county jail was really bad.  Thank God I worked in laundry.  They have me on the shoveling crew, but I’m trying to get a medical slip where I have screw in my right foot.  Remember that I broke it and you guys saw me wearing an air boot?

Love,

Miss Linda

Hi, everyone.

We have male guards work here and you are respected.  On Christmas a couple of male guards played spades with us.

This place isn’t that bad; you have a lot of freedom.  The longest you’re in your room – 3 1/2 hours – is during visits on weekends.  The food isn’t too bad, but that’s where I’d like to have someone order me a care package.  Sometimes I go to bed hungry.  The cook is all hung up on the budget cuts.  We get a lot of pasta, chicken, sandwiches, but absolutely no deserts.

I’m doing seven groups plus working two days in the kitchen.

I’ve seen more women get lugged back to the prison.  One woman who got lugged was because she brought pills and pot back with her from work.  The had the dogs here and one of the dogs sniffed the pot in the paper towel holder.

I do have a really good roommate. I don’t mingle with anyone else.

Miss Linda

Hi, everyone.

This place is really great.

Every Wednesday we get clean sheets, pillow case, blankets.  You don’t know how happy I am that I made it here!  The earliest I get released is June.

The deserts are out of this world.  Tonight we had a strawberry short-cake cupcake with strawberries in the middle of the cupcake.

Talk to you soon.
