I was beginning to think I was not meant to have a Food Visit. Since earning my way to minimum custody a few years ago, I've continued to try to arrange to get a food visit. I had given in to the possibility that it was never going to happen, when to my joy and surprise it all worked out.
"Clark, you have a visit!" The guard announced in the dorm. Sitting up in my bed, I quickly dressed and headed to the visitation room after Tony, Ironman and a couple of other friends wished me a good food visit.
After signing in and a quick pat-search, I entered the crowded visit room, greeted by my good friend Doug's smiling face. A lobbyist in Arizona, Doug is usually at work at the Capitol, on business trips or any number of things that keep him ultra-busy. His visit was a very great gesture for me, as well as a great opportunity for me to hear what's going on in AZ politics, get financial advice, and to shamelessly stuff my face with ridiculous amounts of great food. Seriously, I ate like it was my first meal in over six year! Oh wait...it was. LOL
A big bowl of chicken fried rice, 20 shrimp pot stickers, homemade fruit salad, 4 slices of blueberry pie, a pound of trail mix, strawberry fruit bars, a pound of beef jerky, 2 big sticky buns and 2 pounds of fudge.
Doug left a couple of fruit bars, a handful of trail mix and a couple squares of fudge. In only 1 1/2 hours time span I tore into it.
I must apologize to some of you readers who had to witness my feeding frenzy in visitation, but a guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do to get fed around this camp. LOL
It was also surprising and great to meet and learn that my blog has loyal followers with loved ones here.
It was an excellent visit, grand feast and a very good day.
I'd like to thank Doug, Tony, Ironman, Sue and all of my friends. I know I am a pain in the ass sometimes, but you guys all got my back and I appreciate it. Now lets get to work on my next food visit. September is closing in...LOL (I hope that these visits aren't cut, but it's not looking good).
