  1. yikes....not sure i want free board in a jail cell...ha...
    but if the offer is genuine, what a gift eh? smiles.

  2. Hmmm no thanks, rather take a cardboard box lol

  3. We often joke about 3 hots and a cot, but I'd rather work for mine and keep my liberty.

  4. Nice micro-story, Hank. I picked up a hitch-hiker in Iowa once who was hitch-hiking from Hawaii (he said) to New York. He said he mostly stayed in town jails along the way as they were free. Many times he got a couple of meals out of it also.

    I cleaned up my act as I decided it was in bad taste after the school shootings here and especially on the first anniversary of the Connecticut shooting.
    Now the jail is reserved for Mr. Grinch.

    1. I've seen it, Dr Jim! My comments are now not according to your new posting. Well at least you made the change being sensitive to the changing situation.


  5. Thought provoking for this time of year
