The tattoos are a very small sampling of my artwork from when I was in Max. (I can no longer do them where I am now, in Medium).

The tiger is a drawing I did for my wife, who has since passed away.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the pictures! I finished the transcription for your post.
I labeled the pictures of the tattoos and tiger, per your request today.

Man, I wish I could draw like you do. I really like the old man you've got on the top of your left arm. I draw too but nowhere near as well as yourself. You're an artist! It's too bad you've stopped doing tattoos but I bet you're still turning blank pages of paper into works of art. Stay strong, friend.

Hi Daniel! I'm pretty sure you don't remember me cause it's been forever since I met you and it doesn't look like I'm gonna see you anytime soon! I was married to your Dad's brother's son Jan. We dated about 5 years and got married in 89 and I had my son in 90. We moved to SC where I'm from and we were divorced in 91 or 92. I never heard anymore about the outcome of your situation. Sorry you're there but you have a great attitude. I'm quite sure I would have to get thankful but it'd take a while. I don't know how close you were with Linda and Jan but I never hear from them. It's been about 19 years since I talked or seen them. And yes, time does fly and I forget that until I say 19 years ago. You are a great artist and so is my son and Jan. I am not talented like that. I guess I excel in other areas. Anyway, holler if you want and I'll tell you all the things going on in the world and help you burn up a little of your free time! And I've got jokes!

My Ex is and always will be the worst narcissistic/sociopathic piece of shit that I will ever have to endure. We married in 1995 and when she won a med -malpractice lawsuit for $1.9m, she kicked me out. We lasted 9 years. I trusted her, it is a long story because wow, to my surprise, she re-married less than a year later. I pay $900 every 2 weeks to her in child support and she is 4x wealthier than I am. This piece of work will haunt me, my 12 and 15 year old boys infinitude!

I have no one to talk to about Alison. She is equally ugly outside as well as in and that goes for her entire family, her 290 year piece of crap father Ernie, as well as her 2 sibling sisters. If you are interested in replying, you may not be though. I married the Devil in 1995 and in that year, the Devil went by the name of Alison Dugas.

After I first wrote you I wasn't sure how I'd know if you'd reply or not so guess what? Since I never received any kind of notification that'd you'd gotten my message, I just thought you didn't reply. I saw something on TV tonight about Dover, NH and you crossed my mind. I thought you'd quit blogging altogether. I apologize for the delay and will have to check more often to see if you reply. I saw your tattoos and I'd have to say being an artist must be in your genes. Believe it or not, my son, who I guess would be your cousin, and Jan, did and do artwork much like yours. What a gift! I'm left handed and can't draw a straight line! Do you get to watch TV? How about Donald Trump for President? LOL I told you I had jokes and can make anyone laugh so here goes: I know you've gotten fortune cookies before and if you add "between the sheets" at the end of everyone of them they make complete sense. For example: "You will become more and more wealthy" add between the sheets. Just my humor. Anyways, hope to receive a reply and I will definitely reply in a more timely fashion. I'm sure that your living situation can be quite depressing and just know that even out here sometimes it's no better. I've never been to jail but I had a friend who did two years and I guess what keeps me from doing anything to get there is that she told me you have to wear old granny underwear and you can't color your hair or wear makeup. That's what keeps me from slapping some people most days! Be well!
