  1. Yep. You got me, lol. I was, “Wait. What?!” Click thru, “Oh, good.”

    I enjoy following your scrapbook story. He was likely a bit overwhelmed by the tour. I’ve been there and I was. But I expect, like me, given the setting, and that it was a professional tour in the company of his peers, he definitely wouldn’t want to show that there.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jo! I agree, he probably was quite overwhelmed … I’ve only seen the inside of a prison on television (not sure I want to get much closer than that), but I can imagine it’s quite intimidating.
