I'm not sure if I should post this here or somewhere else but has anyone visited Robinson CC lately?  I've read through all the previous posts on here but they are obviously from a few years ago.  Was interested to know if anyone has been there lately and if there is anything a newbie should know about this facility (phone list approval, visiting list approval, visiting in general, housing conditions etc...)!?!  Any insight would be greatly appreciated, Thank You!!   wc38

You are the first thought when I wake up, the last thought before I go to bed and every thought in between! I loved you yesterday, I love you today and I will always love you tomorrow! ♡♡☆☆♡♡
