Fortunately, we get to sleep until 7 tomorrow morning, so I’m trying to catch up on some news and get an idea of what’s been going on in the world. I don’t know if anyone else is like this, but when I’m on vacation, I lose all track of time. I have to keep checking my phone to find out what day it is and I have absolutely no concept of time, except for how long it will take us to get to the next destination.
I mentioned a few days ago (before I fell off the grid) that the second of the three convicts who escaped from the Arizona penitentiary had been captured, but the third and his fiance/cousin/accessory to escaping were still roaming the country and were believed to be in Montana. I’m reading now that they are believed to be in Arkansas. Over the last few days coverage seems to have faded out, but new twists continue to evolve.
The New York Times is reporting that the incestuous escape accomplice was actually a drug mule for a white supremacist group in Arizona. She turned informant when she got caught to avoid jail time. And you thought this story couldn’t get any better.
I really can’t wait for the movie and book deal to get through. You know it’s going to happen. Everyone wants to know how these two cousins managed to fall in love, how the three devised their escape plan, how the cousins have evaded the U.S. Marshalls for this long and now how Casslyn Welch managed to smuggle heroin into a prison.
I was talking to Mom a few days ago and we decided that Tommy Lee Jones has to play the lead Marshall on the case. I can see him now, “We’re going to be on him like a cheap suit.”
