SPRING RAIN

WELL IT'S SPRING, BUT IT'S AS RAINY AS CAN BE...ALSO THE DAYS ARE DARK AND DULL...OH WELL!....BUT THE TEMPS ARE AROUND 50 AND 60....THAT'S HOW IT IS HERE IN SOUTH JERSEY!....I KIND OF CAN'T WAIT TIL MEMORIAL DAY, WHEN THE BOARDWALK OPENS UP, AND I CAN GO AND SIT THERE, WITH THE OCEAN BREEZE AND EAT CLAMS ON THE HALF SHELL!  JUST LOVE THEM!  ONE DOZEN ONLY OPENS MY APPETITE FOR THEM.  BY THE SECOND DOZEN, I'M REALLY INTO THEM.  BY THE THIRD DOZEN, I'VE STARTED TO HAVE MY FILL!!!.....JIMMY DOES NOT LIKE SEAFOOD OR FISH,  SO HE EATS PIZZA!........THEN I GO TO THE CANDY STORE TO BUY SOME SALT WATER TAFFY.  I USED TO BRING BOXES OF SALT-WATER TAFFY BACK TO MY FRIENDS AND CO-WORKERS IN VEGAS, AND THEY USED TO GO CRAZY OVER IT!.............WELL, I GOT UP EARLY TODAY , 4 AM AND I'VE ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED ALOT.  I PREPARED 2 LETTERS JIMMY WANTED ME TO WRITE . ONE TO THE SENATOR, AND ONE TO THE CONGRESSMAN  (not about prison).  THAT'S HOW MY JIMMY IS!  HE LOVES POLITICS/POLITICIANS, AND LIKES TO GO RIGHT TO THE SOURCE.  ALSO, I HAVE PREPARED, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, OUR INCOME TAX.  I DID IT ON-LINE WITH E-FILE.  THERE'S ALWAYS NEW THINGS TO LEARN AND DO IN LIFE!...............SO TODAY, WHAT WILL I DO?........RUN ERRANDS......POST OFFICE, LIBRARY, PHARMACY, FOOD STORE......UMMM AND YES, A BOTTLE OF WINE FOR ME!....IN LAS VEGAS, IT'S SO EASY TO BUY LIQUOR /BEER IN THE FOODSTORE.  HERE IN JERSEY, YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE  "LIQUOR STORE!"....WELL. I'LL BE THINKING OF YOU ALL AS I GO ABOUT MY ERRANDS, TODAY.

What a beautiful letter that Jimmy wrote to you. BEAUTIFUL. sigh. I've just begun to read your journal day to day. I went back and read it as far as AOL would let me. You are such a sweet lady and with such an interesting and touching life. I now look forward to reading your entries every day. If you ever need a friend or an open ear other than your journal, please feel free to email me. Thank you for all that you share. :)

Thank You so much for your beautiful comment! It is people like you that bring back my faith in humanity, and also encourage me to continue writing. I know that no one wants to listen to a person who is "down and out." However, I try to write in a way that is up-lifting on one hand , and catches the "emotions" on another. I'm going to your journal now, to read it!..Thanks again. You made my day..I had fleeting thoughts today to stop writing in this journal, but now I'll continue!
