THE OLD BALL & CHAIN

When Eaklor speaks of her second marriage to Kautz, she doesn't talk of love, though it is clear she retains feelings for her husband. "I'm not always sure it was the smart thing to do," she says of the remarriage, "but we have a very good relationship, because we do think alike, and we have a lot to visit about and talk about."

She doesn't see her husband often, visiting him in the Buena Vista prison less than once a month. But they speak on the phone at least twice a week, and she mails him articles and orders books for him, which they both read and discuss.

Unlike Flo Orona, Eaklor and her husband haven't made plans for a future together. "I'm not sure he'd be happy living here," Eaklor says of her Penrose home. "The daily grind brings out things that would not exist otherwise. You can feel that everything is perfectly good, and then, once you're in close proximity..." Eaklor's words drop off as she considers the possibilities. "In real life," she continues, "there's probably a lot of things I do that he doesn't like, and there's probably a lot of things that he does that I don't like."
