Hey Donnie! It's Cindy!
I have great news! Matt and I set a wedding date! 9/12/15.
Everything has been going great for us! I'm so sorry I haven't written. Time moves too quickly when you have little kids. I remember that I need to write and then forget again because the boys distracted me or needed something and I forget again. It's definitely a vicious cycle, I'm not 40 yet and my mind is already going. Hahaha! I'm pretty sure you have your address listed on your bio, and as long as you do, I'm gonna send you one of our Christmas cards. I know it's late, but you should still have one!
I'll write soon :) hope everything is going well! Love you,

Hey Donnie,
Hope this letter finds you well, despite where you are.
People call me Pinky. I live in Wisconsin, Home of Harley's, Miller beer, and least we forget good ol' Dahmer. I came about this site by accident. I have a friend here doing life. He has been locked up since 75! Been denied parole every year. as of April 9th 2015 he got yet another D-12. I have been doing what I can to work with a group named FFUP. They are working on a compassionate release for old law inmates. Originally the law was if I remember correctly either mandatory release after 13 and a 1/2 years for a lifer,or parole eligibility,if you comitted a crime before 1999. But since the whole "truth in sentencing" came about, well needless to say..a fair shake is not to be had by anyone. I have no clue if CA has compassionate release or not.
Ok well you should know who the hell is writing you, so here goes. As I said people call me pinky, being as for 15 yrs I have dyed 1/2 my hair pink in one way or another. I am 42 5'5 150 lbs, I have pink and blond hair, 8 or so tatts and 3 piercings Not going to lie, I am a sucker for long haired guys, but I am not looking for anyone for I have someone,but friends(hell we all need friends). His name is Donny as well,he is an ex inmate I read you were looking for conversation, now that I can do!
Basically I have had prison in my life in one way or another, be it family locked up in CA who won't see anyone, or partners who have done time, some long before I was a tear drop in my daddy's eye! haha! I have never been married and do not intend to be. Not a fan of that mess. I am a fun, out spoken, sarcastic odd person. My sense of humor sometimes can be warped, and in some cases I have to explain it. haha! Should you read something and think " what the hell is she on?" Let me know and i will do my best to not be a total smartass. haha! I am a work in progress, I am well educated with the mouth of a sailor/trucker. :)

Not sure how this whole thing works as far as writing back and forth from this site, I will keep this letter short. Feel free to write back. I kinda have an idea about what is "ok" to write. If ya think I am a lost cause, well I get it, as I am not fit for everyone. :)

Have it good.

Woot! A friend for life! yay me! Hiyas Donnie. Hope all is going good for you. Nice to hear back from you. I didn't think I would. Have no fear of disrespecting anyone or stepping on toes. I do what I want, and like I told him,
" Hell you been locked up long enough, ya don't need me tying ya down" same goes with me, I do what I want and due to respect, trust and all that fun stuff, all is good. Yeah I know enough about prisons and how fucked up the entire prison nation is. It's sad really. They Fuckin run ads for " oh save fluffy from being killed" or " feed this child from the 3rd world that kills it's own people." But let's not run ads on mass incarceration, or 2nd chances. Why would ya wanna do that?!
In answer to your " do you have kids" yep. I have a 20 yr old son, and a daughter who would have been 24, but her and a friend she was with passed on in 2005. It's a long story.
I know what ya mean by having many prisons, here too pull up a map of WI and you will see more prisons that fuckin vacation sites."Come visit Wisconsin as a innocent citizen...leave a criminal" Now that should be the slogan for this frozen state. ha!
Ha! ha! Pinkerton eh? With a last name like that, I am sure to write your bud. :)
I read ya work out a lot. Yeah well I probably should,I mean I ain't like 600 lbs, but I sure as fuck ain't 90lbs soakin wet either. ha! Yes tiz true, maybe because I was an 80's hair metal junkie or some odd crap, but a guy with long hair..Oh lawd! ha!
There sooo has to be a faster way to write to you than this site. It's sept. 28th 2015 and it says ya wrote to me on sept. 13th? I thought snail mail was bad. I could have wrote to you via carrier pigeon and you would have got it faster! ha! This is a decent site though. It has good intentions, I get it.At the same time, the world can read what we write, so I am thinking a direct line of snail mail would work. This way I am not offending the entire interweb with my responses. The fucked up thing is that I will have to wait til they write your reply for me to get your current address. Then when I write, the only one I may offend is a C.O. or you if ya forget this girl is warped. ha! I have no prob sending ya a pic. I know there are limits
(well here anyway) about how many you can have. I also know the obvious, no nudies, or partial nudes..ect ect. I can see us being most excellent pen pals, friends and all that fun stuff. I think we should be. I think it should even be made into some odd law that we are required to be friends. :) Apparently I can not write a shit ton of stuff to ya on here,And i have a shit ton I wanna write so give me an address and then I can send ya a book. ha!
Hoping to hear from ya soon.
Hugs from Wisconsin!
