Unconditional Relationship

Joanne and I took a nice drive to FMC Devens this morning.  Mike was right.  It seemed like a low end prep school, very clean and green with nice athletic facilities - only with no curriculum and a dorm full of men of all ages wearing the same clothes.
Seems to be tolerable with the lack of freedom and constant supervision being the primary factors used for punishment.  If you step out of line, they put you into a "hole" in solitary confinement with terrible food for an indeterminate amount of time.  Our boy spent four days in this environment, under the auspices of seeing the results of a TB test.   But it is really a taste of how hard a time this could be.... and a terrific deterrent.   The threat of this guarantees an overall culture of good behavior.
So we'll make this trip for as many times as it takes.... because that is what we do.
