Thats wonderful that you are in touch with him....

I am not sure what the phone hours are for "D" but I assume they are the same as my baby is on "B"..

9am-3pm and 7pm-9pm...(last call at 8:45)

Good morning JaysBea. I did not, my Mom-In-Law did.
Hopefully you, me and any other B yard ladies get a call.
FYI..I got a letter from my Baby yesterday. He says alot of NEW transfers, and phone sign-ups lines are starting before it is announced ...he says "CRAZY"! he said "Mami blk Friday aint got nothing".....LOL , my baby has such a sense of humor love that man!

Hi Bea!! Hope you're well! F-ing stupid pto took away our PV general chat - BOO! (Better write something phone related so they don't disappear me ) Anyway, not on b so I haven't gotten a call from there, sorry. But I have heard about a lot of movement going on in and out of PV. Makes sense all the guys fresh off orientation would be clogging up the phones. :/ good luck with that ladies

LMAO!!! omg SOcal you made my day!!! that was so funny and so true PTO sucks now without our own chitchat, but oh! well. Yea, phone sign ups are super hard to get now


Nica 27-- Thank you he was suppose to call me yesterday1/14 in the afternoon and his mom today 1/15. LOL might as well call it black friday for the phones it has been getting pretty busy. Hope you get a call.

Bdogswifey-- I will let you know if he calls let me know if you hear anything too. My man is on B-5 he wasn't suppose to call me today he was suppose to call his mom. I will know for sure tomorrow night if he calls. I hope nothing bad happend maybe they couldn't get to sign up and had to be out on the yard, but I have faith he is okay. If you want the best way to find out is to call records if he is in the same cell then he is okay. Hope you hear from your hubby tonight...

And to all the ladies I hope you recieve a call tonight from your loved ones.

I really dont know why they took off our chit chat, but I guess we have to adust somehow
you can find the chit chat on one of these threads What Happen To Our Jan 2013 Chit Chat Thread?
What they did was take down our chit chat and combined it into this thread with other ladies whose loved ones are serving time in other prisons in california. You can check it out for yourself if you like.

I hope your man gets off orientation and you get a call soon.

JaysBea/Passionfruit/SoCaL...I too am not fond of this state wide chit chat thread ..I tried to start one for Jan. but that got shut down quick . Anyway maybe it will come back in the next six months or next year, we got to have faith and hope .


Did anyone of you ladies get calls from your LO's?

I bet you will be getting a phone call soon. I believe you will be able to visit this weekend. Did you make your appointment to visit? Just in case he comes off orientation.

Yes Chica that is the correct site
