Tonight, I visited a friend of mine who is in jail. He was arrested yesterday for alcohol related violent behavior and for violating his probation. Now, he's in jail with no bail - he could be there as long as 6 months. Sitting there on one side of the plexiglass window trying to give him support was very eye-opening for me. I NEVER EVER want to allow my drinking to take me to such a place. I've come close before with 2 DUI's. We all know that alcohol will ruin lives and ruin your spirit, but tonight was a huge reminder of why I CANNOT drink. Seeing the jail and my friend and all the stuff I saw just made me hate alcohol and made me so completely aware that I do not want to go down that road. For any of you facing jail time right now, be strong. I will likely visit my friend again in a few days to see how he's doing, but I don't ever want to find myself on the other side of that plexiglass window!! - piper

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
