When he met with his family, Clayton went over more details about what meals are like at the facility. He explained that for breakfast this morning the inmates had sausage patties with eggs and some kind of hearty cheese sauce, pancakes, and syrup. Apparently breakfast always comes with milk here. For lunch they had some kind of small hot dog with chili. Dinner was a similar consistency to Dinty Moore beef stew with salad, green beans, and a cookie. Clayton gave Andy his cookie, because he is trying to eat healthy. Much to the shock of everyone in his family, he is actually eating the green beans and salad every day as well.
Clayton also mentioned that he gave Andy the top bunk when they changed cells yesterday. He joked about getting up to the top just being one more exercise, but his wife remembered him talking about the bruises the upper bunks cause from the leap. Clayton was also giving Andy the opportunity to read the Christian books from the chaplain, so they could discuss them together. The first book he had been given was Finding God in the Dark, and the second was a book of testimonials that Clayton believed was called Resound.

Other than the visitors for the day, Clayton wondered about when responses and mail would arrive. He had not yet figured out when the commissary he'd ordered would arrive or how much of a delay to expect in the process. He also wondered how long it would take the letters from his family to arrive. Someone from the family had sent in a question about whether gum was available on the commissary list, knowing his fondness for it, and he said there wan't. He did advise his family though, that he'd figured out that he didn't get access to a phone much past 7 or 8 pm, so they didn't need to worry about waiting that late for a call from him.
