Leisure Time

Interview with Garrett

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Garrett: TV, Chess, Checkers, cards (you had to buy them through commissary), paper to write on.

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Garrett: You had to buy your own cards.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Garrett: Yes. I did fine with my upper body but there wasn't a lot of room to walk so my lower body got out of shape.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Garrett: The only pod that ever goes outside are the trustees, when they go to work.

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Garrett: No, but the inmates organized some of their own church meetings.
