Federal Prison

Comment on Freedom Speaker Blog

Comment on Freedom Speaker, it matters It’s a privilege in having the freedom to post comments, express oneself, and an invitation not to be taken for granted.  In the “big house” (Federal Prison) we didn’t have the freedom to do so.  Imagine being without the internet or social sites.  No google, no Facebook, No Wikipedia, no MapQuest. (could encourage escaping) Lol …

Inspiration and Vodka are good

People inspire people.  My question is, who is inspiring the people that are trying to do the inspiring?  I know it’s a mind-bender! LOL   WARNING- My brain and my typing may not be in sync. Have you ever been curious about why people seek inspiration? You’re probably shaking your head, thinking,”Who cares”? Strangely I …

Compassionate payphones

There’s nothing sexy about a payphone.  Their bulky, sticky, dirty, and you never know if they’re going to operate correctly. You may not be old enough to remember payphones, but you could spot payphones on the side of the road or at the corner gas station, and my favorite was the phone booth. Not only for superman, but if you …

The Prison for the Innocent

One of America’s greatest pleasures, aside from watching the Carolina Panthers kick some  butt, is eating and drinking!  C’mon, you know it.  Sharing food, sipping wine or chugging beer.  Yum-yum and belch. We did the same thing while at Alderson Federal Prison Camp, but our version of the bar were beaten and scratched aluminum picnic …

Freedom Speaker asks…”Should I limit my news intake”?

Have you ever gone on a news fast?  I picked a card from “Table Topics”, yesterday and it has me thinking.  “Limit your news intake”. I tune into the news frequently, however, I seldom feel more educated or insightful…more like “played”.  Actually I feel worse.  Worse about the presidential candidates we have to choose from to be our next Commander …

Mailed with a kiss

Mail is not what it used to be.  Walking to the mailbox is becoming extinct.  The option to go paperless has become quite popular, (when I think of paperless, why do I think of topless)? Opening the power bill, late fee notices, or my favorite, “air-duct cleaning” coupons, hardly warrant a desire to rush to the mailbox. Receiving …

Sometimes the answer is “I don’t know”

Occasionally I’m asked, “Holly why do you do write this stuff”?  My answer is usually the same…”I really don’t know”.  So lately, I have been giving thought to the question. After giving thought, (and it wasn’t a passing thought, I really thought about it), my answer is still the same….”I really don’t know”. It’s my …

The Gift of Laughter

  As I write this post this morning, I can’t help but laugh to myself.  (or at myself)  My oldest son is probably one of the funniest people I know.  It’s hard not to smile or laugh when he is around. Occasionally he is quiet, and when he is, I tend to have a concern. On June …
