Some stories just write themselves!
Some people like the cot, meals and security of being locked up.
Yeah. Doesn't seem like the best of plans!

Just saw a thing on TV today about elderly prisoners.There was one guy who had escaped from a prison work detail about 40 years ago who today appears to be in his 70's or 80's.Seems the family decided that they either couldn't afford to pay for a nursing home for him (or didn't want to) so they called the local sheriff and told him that grandpa was wanted for escape.Now he's serving a long stretch in the prison's nursing home section.
It was pretty sad,actually.
Sad thing is, it may be a better nursing home than the average.
