I received a letter back from San Quentin this week. He’s started by explaining the late reply “Been somewhat procrastinating on doing much of anything but watch television most of the time and listen to the radio”
He’s gone on to say he is happy to hear my relationship is going well. I said in my last letter that we did a date night. Cal picked the film, I picked food.. I really wanted chicken nuggets so that’s how the date ended, SQ has said “Sharing a box of chicken nuggets works just fine, and a movie too! Wonderful date. That’s some of the things I miss, going to the movies. Hopefully soon you and Cal will start going ghost hunting again.” In a previous letter I told San Quentin that I’d tried to persuade Cal to come ghost hunting with me and he’d said I was being mean and can see why he didn’t wanna go.
Also in my last letter I wrote that I’d hit my head, he’s said “How’s your head coming along? I’m sure you’re fine by now and no serious injury I hope!” SQ has mentioned that he’s had a few head injuries of his own as a kid.
He’s briefly written about NASA and new planets being discovered, that he’s not reading any new books lately, SQ has also said he’s glad to hear that I am doing well with my degree.
In my last letter I mentioned Mother’s day was coming up “I did not know Mother’s Day over there is in March. It’s May over here. If you will, tell your mom happy mothers late day for me. My mom passed away when I was young, will always think of her”
He’s written about some of his current favourite songs and lyrics, then signed off saying “Okay Sian, I’ll let you go for now. Don’t want to take up any more of your time. Take care and take it easy and stay safe. And by the way, I’m still waiting for you to hook me up with some more pen friends!”
So genuinely, if anyone reading this is interested in becoming San Quentin’s penpal, please leave me a comment and I’ll get in touch with you. He currently has no visitors, and I am the only person he writes with. It’d be great to get another friend set up for him!
