If you have any questions for Andy about the prison system, what it is like, what goes on there, or anything, please leave the question in a blog comment and Andy would be happy to answer it. It keeps him occupied and allow us to learn about the system.

Also, for his friends, he would LOVE to get pictures of anything, so if you have his address, please send them to him, or if you would like to email them to the blog editor, you can do that and he will print out the pics and mail them to him.

He is now attending the class he must take before his release, and he will mention the journal entry memo they discussed that day in class.

Even if you don't know Andy, feel free to comment on his blog entries, which he gets and will respond to.

Responses to some comments...
Hopelessly Hopeful - I see what you mean.  #25 which basically says it’s not alright to physically assault anyone, should be subjective.  Pretty much, it should pertain to everyone else other than myself.  LOL!

Shane  - Mo-peds have feelings too, and I saved your tail from going to jail that night.  (Even though, I did goad you into your ‘crime’ in the first place.)  I’ll never forget that episode…ever.  Save the mopeds!

MamaB  - You have to give Shane a little leeway sometimes….thanks!   You’re correct in your assessment of the physical assault entry #25.  It’s definitely only going to work if both parties agree.  If one person doesn’t subscribe to that adage, then they are going to have a little advantage over someone who just stands there as a punching bag. #25 may be too idealistic.
     Does this mean that the official verdict is still out on Knight Rider?
     I plan on videoing my first nunchuck deer kill and posting it on this blog and on You-tube.  It will go viral and then I’ll be assailed by a mess of animal rights activists.  I hope they adhere to Journal #25.
     Thanks for all the Zodiac Killer, Speck, and Van der Sloot info.  I’ll bring it up in my class next week.
      BTW -  I saw a recipe and pictures of pumpkin pancakes in my Men’s Health magazine earlier today.  Sooo...delicious looking!

Eddie C  - From the context you were given, I understand your thoughts about a bunch of inmates talking about ‘Dancing with the Stars’.  Let me clarify by saying that our female teacher always recaps the previous night’s show for about 5 minutes before we start our actual lessons.  So cut us some slack.  We are sort of a captive audience for her.  I plan on making you eat dirt again the next time I see you.  You will like it!
      Did you spend the entire 69 days in the mine with the other Chileans?  I sort of had a feeling when we were growing up that you would someday become a Chilean miner.

MamaB  - Once I get out I will give everyone a full report on hunting, muzzleloaders, firearms, etc.  I have promised several guys in here that I’d pass along the information to them, too.  My class is still enjoyable.   What does your son say about his Changes class?  Like you mentioned, it will, at a minimum, help him pass the time.

Shane  -  Stop being so politically correct and trying to CYA with your post entry disclaimers. I feel you are scared.  I also think that you truly did intend to insult Eddie and probably wanted to make him cry.  Poor Eddie.  Also, I must take issue with you calling out Jeff about your lack of lake invites.  You’ve had a blanket invitation for probably the last 5 years and you have come once…I think.  Poor showing. The Summer of 2011 needs to be the Summer of Shane!

Jeff B  - Memorial Weekend 2011 is approaching.  Be prepared!

Brad J -  What’s going on, Brad?  How terrific to hear from you!  I promise I’m not making this up.  Less than 2 weeks ago, I told a friend of mine in here the story about your “rubbing shoulder blades” during our freshman year at Travis.  Shane might want to chime in at this time because I know he is ROFL.  Now that we have this wonderful blog as a forum to discuss your condition in detail, it would be great if you could explain the biomechanics of just how in the heck your blades managed to rub.  Sorry……
     It is nice to hear from you and I appreciate your input and concern.  I, too, am very ready to get out of this place.  I wasn’t aware that genetics influenced abs, but I guess it makes sense.  Getting plenty of water in here is easy and I drink a lot every single day.  It is impossible for me to get a lemon or lemon juice in here.  My salt intake in here is so high that I think it is probably useless to try and do anything to expunge the excess sodium.  I am looking forward to trying what you suggest as soon as I’m out.  I know I’ll be able to drastically reduce my sodium levels almost instantly.  I don’t intake a lot of sugar in here, but the cafeteria inundates all of our meals with starch and it’s nearly impossible to avoid it.  That’s another thing that I’ll be able to change just as soon as I’m out.   I do eat a lot of peanut butter, but overall, I’m not able to intake as much protein as I need.
      So I guess in conclusion, based on what you have said, I am coming pretty close to maximizing my workout potential based on the conditions that are present in here.  I’ve found that I have so much time to exercise, that it’s tough to combat the monotony and boredom.  I think I have about 8 more weeks here, and I’m just mentally struggling to trod through the first 4 of the 8.  Once I’m only a month away from leaving, it will be easier for me to stay focused and motivated.  The moral of this story is that I’m pretty determined to walk out of here perfectly primed to extend and tweak my workouts for the optimum benefits.  The 6 pack will be there by the end of January, or not.  Thanks again, and I’ll talk to you soon.  Please slap Shane on the back for me….hard.

Marc’s Queen - Thanks for helping me with my questions.  It really is crazy how much I miss internet access.  I can’t wait to be back to normal.  It takes a full month in here to accomplish what might take merely 5 ‘normal’ minutes in the free world.
     Here’s what I know to be fact about firearms and hunting.  There is nothing illegal about hunting.  As Jeff suggested, I could go after a deer with nunchucks, and it would be all good.  As you alluded to in your transcription of the “Felons and Firearms” law, it is unlawful for me to possess a firearm.  This is very clear.  However, the confusion begins as other laws define “firearm”.  A seemingly simple word creates much ambiguity, and this is what I will need to research in greater detail.  Thank you again.
