We used to get all kinds of nice things from the prisoners. They used to send me gifts. Gene would bring home all kinds of beautiful flowers–they would raise flowers; they had a greenhouse. They had prisoners that worked in carpentry. They had prisoners that were artists. Some of them were able to do their own thing that way. I’ve got some paintings that one prisoner made for me. I paid a carton of cigarettes for each painting. And we also had a coffee table and a little hexagon end table.
