This is the tag on the mattress I’m sleeping on tonight at Texas State’s University Camp out in Wimberley. Can you make that out? It says,”Texas Department of Corrections.” That’s right, I’m sleeping on a prison mattress tonight. My mother would be displeased. The mattress weighs 90 pounds too. I almost threw out my back trying to flip it over to get a good picture for y’all. The bunk bed that the mattress is on is painted steel gray and has US stamped on the side. I’m guessing WWII. WWII prison camp? Or just a mishmash of bedding sources for Texas State?
On the home front, I just got this text from Eliot: “Asa and i WENT ROCKCLIMBING!!! He was terrific and had too much fun. I short-roped him through a few hundred yrds of boulder jumble, one of best adventure climbing days ever.” I am so jealous. Well, at least I get to sleep on prisoner dandruff tonight.
