Just thought I’d remind everyone concerned that this morning I woke up in my nice snug bed in Maryland, and Victoria woke up in her nice snug bed in Massachusetts.
Inmate # 14062-052 woke up in her bunk in Danbury Federal Correctional Institution for Women.
Are you listening, Bobby, Cris, Barbara, and Leanne?

What? No Martha Stewart? lol
Way to go, Ann. Sweet dreams to you for giving scammers nightmares.
ROFLOL! I almost had an accident with my coffee. Stop that!
Ouch! That’s almost cruel.
But not quite, and certainly not undeserved.
I woke up in my nice snug bed in the wet, cold, slushy Seattle suburbs of Washington State.
And I just found out that dear old Martha is now behind bars. I hope some other unnamed persons follow her there in the future.
Sleep? You mean people sleep? wow!
Nice. Very very nice.
(PS I woke up snug and cozy under my duvet on a very cold day outside – I love waking up like that.
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Perhaps you should change your name to Scammers Beware.
I’m in sunny Southern California, where we had snow in Malibu and hail in Fontana – and 5 minutes of rain here in Whittier.
When your ice starts melting, send some our way.
Snug bunnies never really sleep. Remember that.
They are energizer rabbits.
And the rest of us are recharging the batteries.
I woke up in my nice snug bed in Illinois happy that I know about Writer Beware.
I woke up in my nice snug bed in Virginia. 🙂
