It was my turn to be the bouncing ball tonight. It happens.
I had been scheduled to be on B-yard. So I dressed for the yard. When i get in the Lt says "Go do the mail run, then go to B-yard."
Okey-dokey. I can do that.
For some reason today every time i tried to go through a door today there were two people in the doorway blocking me. And it was always someone who outranked me so I couldn't just knock them down to get through.
Well, I could have...... but, you know.
So I get the mail run done and go back up to get yard keys. I stop by central to pick up my lunch box and the Lt tells me "Go to main production. The Singing Cowboy is sick and has to go home."
Okey-dokey. I go over to main production and he's not there. There are two other officers already there. What the snap?
Just about the time I'm thinking the Lt has made a mistake, he calls me on the radio and says "Go to A-dining. That's where he's at."
Aw... snap. Okay. So I trot over to dining and sure enough, there he is. Trade keys with him and off he goes.
This is my third time in A-dining in seven years. I hope the inmates know what they're doing, because I don't have a clue. Sure enough, between them and the cooks, they kept me from screwing anything up.
Get done there and call the Lt and ask where next. He says "Back to B-yard."
Back up front to get my yard keys once more.
All night long I kept waiting for the call to send me somewhere else, but it never came.
There's a handmade sign up in the yard shack. It says "Driver wanted. B-yard. Sunday thru Thursday." Funny stuff.
On the way out I ask the Lt what my position number is. He gives me a funny look and says "Are you applying for that driver position?"
Yeah, funny stuff.
I'm going to drop a slip on it tomorrow when I get a few minutes.
Wish me luck.
At least tomorrow and Thursday I know where I'll be ahead of time.
Well, cool! Tomorrow is National Brownie Day! A holiday you can really sink your teeth into...
More things my mother kept - *Doesn't everyone keep old 1952 driver's licenses? I see by the address that this was the time we moved to Kansas City and didn't stay long at all, perhap...
