KINTOCK

JIMMY STARTED HIS JOB ON TUESDAY....BUT HE MOST LIKELY STILL CAN'T COME HOME THIS WEEK, BECAUSE NOW IT'S SOMETHING ABOUT HE DIDN'T PAY HIS RESIDENTIAL FEES AT KINTOCK...WELL, THAT IS BECAUSE HE WAS NOT WORKING, AND THERE IS A MIX-UP ABOUT HIS LAST PAYCHECK...I JUST DON'T KNOW....IT IS ALWAYS SOMETHING....

JIMMY IS NOW WORKING AT THE OTHER STORE, WHICH IS A FEW MINUTES FROM KINTOCK....HOWEVER, HE HAS BEEN "DEMOTED," AND IS NOW WORKING IN THE  "DELI DEPT," AMONGST THE CHEESE AND COLD-CUTS...NOTHING LIKE A HUSBAND WHO SMELLS OF LIVERWURST AND SWISS CHEESE....AND , OH YES, PICKLES!

WHEN HE WALKED INTO THE STORE TODAY, MR. P. HAD HUNG UP A SIGN ON THE DOOR, FOR "ASSISTANT MANAGER NEEDED ."....AS YOU CAN SEE, MR. P. IS A VERY SPITEFUL MAN........

WELL, JIMMY IS ENJOYING HIS NEW JOB....HE LIKES TALKING TO CUSTOMERS, ETC........."DELI WORK" FOR JIMMY IS VERY EASY WORK........."FRAN," HE SAID TO ME, "THIS IS THE EASIEST JOB I'VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE.".......YOU SEE, MY FRIENDS, JIMMY OWNED A FAMOUS DELICATESEN, AT ONE TIME........."THE NEW YORK DELI."........JIMMY LOVES OWNING AND MANAGING THINGS........THAT DELI WAS ONE OF MANY THINGS HE OWNED AND MANAGED......HOTELS, RESTAURANTS, STORES...YOU NAME IT, HE'S DONE IT........HE LOVES BEING A MANAGER...HE TELLS ME THAT ALL THE TIME....AND HIS PERSONALITY SUITES "MANAGEMANT."........AND AS FOR ME, I PERSONALLY HATE MANAGEMENT.....ALTHOUGH I HAVE A MASTER'S DEGREE IN " MANAGEMENT," COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, TEACHER'S COLLEGE, NEW YORK CITY, AND I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH SOME OF THE TOP MANAGER'S IN OUR COUNTRY..I EVEN GRADUATED WITH A  3.8 AVERAGE....AND WAS 15 CREDITS AWAY FROM A TEACHING DEGREE.......HOWEVER, TRUTHFULLY , I WAS NEVER SO HAPPY THE DAY I COULD RETIRE, AT THE AGE OF 48.......CARRYING A BRIEF CASE, AND WEARING HIGH HEELS , WELL, IT JUST WASN'T FOR ME..........I GLADLY HAVE TRADED THAT IN, AND PREFER TO BE MY OWN CREATIVE SELF.......JIMMY, WELL HE LOVES IT.(MANAGEMENT).......AND THAT'S FINE...I LOVE HAVING A HUSBAND LIKE THAT.....I COULD NEVER BE MARRIED TO, LET'S SAY, A CONSTRUCTION WORKER.............I WILL NEVER AGAIN WORK FOR A CORPORATION, AS I HAVE IN THE PAST...AND IF I EVER WORK AGAIN, IN MANAGEMENT, IT WILL BE TO "MANAGE"  MY OWN BUSINESS........LET IT BE WRITTEN IN STONE...I WILL NEVER, EVER , WORK FOR MANAGEMENT AGAIN.......THE PEOPLEIN MANAGEMENT ARE UNDER HIGH STRESS, AND REALLY HAVE NO FUN IN LIFE    :)

I STILL CAN'T FIGURE OUT JUST WHY A 50 YEAR OLD MAN, WHO HAS HIGH DEGREES OF EDUCATION, AND HAS WORKED HIS WHOLE LIFE, SINCE HE WAS 18 YEARS OLD OR SO, WOULD EVEN BE IN A  "WORKING HALF-WAY HOUSE."....TO ME, "WORKING HALF-WAY HOUSES" ARE FOR YOUNG DELIQUENT BOYS, WHO HAVE NEVER WORKED IN THEIR LIVES...IT IS TO TEACH THOSE BOYS HOW TO GO ON A JOB INTERVIEW, MAKE A RESUME....HOW TO WORK ON A JOB...TO HELP THEM FIND A TRADE, OR SOMETHING THEY CAN DO, TO BE PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS IN OUR WORLD..............

I JUST CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT..........TO ME, IT IS ALL SO BIZARRE..........

AND SO, LIFE GOES ON..........YESTERDAY, I PUT UP SOME OF THE DECORATIONS THAT JIMMY BROUGHT HERE FOR HALLOWEEN..........I WAS IN A BETTER MOOD YESTERDAY.......

I BOUGHT A WHITE MASK FOR JIMMY THAT "GLOWS IN THE DARK.".........HE CAN WEAR THAT TO BED , WHEN HE COMES HOME ON HIS FURLOUGH....HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE BEFORE 0CT. 31...............AS FOR MYSELF, I BOUGHT A WITCHES HAT WITH A GREEN FEATHER AROUND THE RIM, AND A WITCHES BROOMSTICK, WITH GREEN AND SILVER STREAMERS........I'LL JUST WEAR THE HAT AND BROOMSTICK, AND CALL MYSELF "THE NAKED WITCH."..........I LIKE IT THAT WAY............    :)

TRUTHFULLY, JIMMY ALWAYS TELLS ME THAT A WITCHES HAT SUITES ME TO A "T."

After all this time, you would think they would just send him home already for good. I wonder why they do not give him a release date? Just hang in their Fran, before you know it he will be home on his furlough. One day this will all be behind you two...you both have such struggles but they only make you stronger. Just use this time to work on you, and do the things that you love...try to surround yourself with happy things...
