  • Hi love - and hi to Jody :) I kind of want to see how long it takes for you to get responses - though I don't usually write anything here (i know - i know - nor anywhere else either! :) ) Jody, send him notes - he'll love ...

  • Just dropped in and thought I'd send a note :) I read regularly, but I'm no better about writing here than I am about writing in real life. I love you .... Now you know who this is <giggle>

  • You may have noticed by now that I'm taking a break. I didn't intend to do so, but when I realized that I felt as though a weight had been lifted from my shoulders I decided I needed to. I'd been feeling smothered - suffocated - and I need to ...

  • I'm worried about Aunt Alice - not that I have any knowledge, but just from what Linda just posted that Ted had found out. When I saw her at Quna's house for her birthday and gave her a hug she felt like a bird- so little and fragile. How are ...

  • Noticed that you totally ignored the last post I made - shouldn't surprise me since you seldom answer my direct questions in letters either. Still on the pity pot I see - the CDC is always wrong and opts to persecute you - perhaps if you'd stayed away from committing ...

  • I'm not ready to write yet - it's so much easier this way - I don't feel the pressure. Just got over being sick - 2 1/2 weeks - ran a fever, body aches, etc. I seldom feel my age, but I surely felt old all this time. Still not ...

  • About birds playing - yes they do. We were eating at a restaurant on the pier once - overlooking a small strip of sand. Although this was in Southern California, there were no humans out there - probably because there were other 'people-friendly' beaches close. Anyway - during the entire ...

  • No - I haven't written - even when I try, it just doesn't happen. Almost your birthday - and then Christmas - I think of you so much but I can't force myself to write. Amber had a baby 7 weeks ago - on the anniversary of the death of ...

  • I think of you every day - though I know you doubt that right now. It's different here - this is a very small town and we live rural. You'd like it - well, except for the no beer part - lol. I don't know anyone here who has ever ...

  • It's ironic that now you have a chance for parole - why couldn't this have happened before I left California? I know inside that I'll never go back there - I'm finished moving. I know also that this is not the place you'd want to be - it's so outside ...

  • Well - they cleaned this up and now you won't know what I was talking about - lol. Some nut was writing a bunch of gibberish - I mean pages of meaningless thought fragments - and not just to you. There were at least two others. I talked to another ...

  • I'll try to get this brief note done tonight and hopefully it'll go out tomorrow. The site wasn't down but they were a little behind - I had communication with one of the admins - there's definitely a lag somewhere. The date on your page is 12/21/15 - it was ...

  • Well sweetie - I'm not sure if they're behind again, or if they just forgot to update with the message that my message had been sent - I know that happens sometimes. It doesn't indicate that my last one went out so maybe you'll get more than one. I'm sorta ...

  • Lol - isn't IMO short for 'In My Opinion'? Also - IMHO 'In My Humble Opinion' Home again - happy to be here - love my friends but they wear on me. I'm pretty unsociable - particularly when they argue, which is constantly. I miss you - wishing you were ...

  • Perfect weather today - breeze blowing, intermittent cloud cover - supposed to be in the high 70s later on. I could deal with this kind of weather - it's when it's 90 or more with high humidity that it kills me. Feeling nostalgic the last few days, weeks, months - ...

  • Daylight savings time - ugh. Actually, it doesn't bother me - I just wish they'd make it one way or the other and not switch. It just doesn't make sense! Plus I'm sleepy and crabby :) Another week starts tomorrow - yawn!! They're all pretty much the same since I ...

  • Sometimes I'm not sure I decided correctly when I came here. Oh I know - it's inevitable - there will come a time when I can't care for myself - but I'm not there yet and it's different here. I don't know how to describe it - it's not that ...

  • Just a note so you know I'm thinking of you - sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks but I just haven't wanted to...don't think that means I don't care because I do - it's just that some days (or longer) I want to retreat from the world. ...

  • My love - never give up - never lose sight of the goal. This is, ultimately, a fight you must pursue for yourself - and win for yourself. Before you can completely love another you must learn to love (and forgive) yourself. It's a long, arduous journey but the rewards ...
