JIMMY AND FRAN

I'M SO HAPPY THAT I'M GETTING THROUGH, AND ABLE TO SAVE MY ENTRIES....I WAS TRYING ALL WEEK, AND FINALLY TONIGHT, THINGS ARE OK........I HOPE IT WILL STAY THAT WAY.

ONE THING JIMMY TOLD ME 5 YEARS AGO, WHEN WE FIRST MET AND GOT MARRIED , WAS "FRAN, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE A DULL MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE, " AND "YOU WILL HAVE A VERY FULFILLING SEX LIFE.".......WELL, BOTH THINGS HAVE PROVED TO BE TRUE!

THERE IS NEVER A DULL MOMENT WITH JIMMY, AND THINGS ARE FOREVER IN PROGRESS.  I AM HIS "CONSTANT," IN LIFE, AND THAT IS A GOOD THING........THAT IS, I AM LIKE HIS ANCHOR..........

THINGS HAVE CHANGED SINCE I WROTE HERE LAST...............FIRST, KINTOCK WILL NOT ALLOW RESIDENTS TO GO HOME FOR THANKSGIVING........SO THAT IS THAT.........SECONDLY, JIMMY GOT HIS MANAGER JOB BACK IN IGA FOODSTORE IN ATLANTIC CITY, AND STARTED WORKING THERE AGAIN THIS WEEK....AND SO, OF COURSE, HE HAS TO WORK ON THANKSGIVING........

JIMMY IS HAPPY TO BE BACK IN AC, AND I AM TOO........AFTER JIMMY WAS SO ABRUPTLY FIRED FROM HIS JOB AT IGA, A FEW MONTHS AGO, HE WAS REALLY NOT HAPPY WORKING IN THE DELI, IN THE STORE NEAR KINTOCK......I'M HIS WIFE, AND I KNOW MY HUSBAND VERY WELL.........JIMMY NEEDS A CHALLENGING JOB......HE IS A PEOPLE PERSON, AND LIKES MANAGERIAL WORK...FOR HIM, IT IS AN ENJOYMENT TO DO THAT SORT OF WORK, AND HE IS GOOD AT IT.........DELI WORK IS SIMPLY TOO BORING FOR HIM.............

WHEN JIMMY LEFT THE ATLANTIC CITY STORE, THE STORE WAS CLOSED BY THE BOARD OF HEALTH....IT BECAME DIRTY, ETC. AFTER JIMMY LEFT........JIMMY KEEPS THAT STORE IMMACULATE AND VERY ORGANIZED...........SO, WHEN THE OWNERS REALIZED THIS, THEY BEGGED JIMMY TO COME BACK..............JIMMY HAD TOLD ME, "FRAN IT WAS LIKE A CRAZY PERSON WAS RUNNING THIS STORE WHILE I WAS GONE.".................AND SO, JIMMY IS CLEANING UP THE MESS HE FOUND THERE..............HE ALSO WAS GIVEN A BIG PAY RAISE, AND WILL HAVE THE DAYS OFF HE NEEDS.......AND SO, THINGS ARE RUNNING SMOOTHLY NOW, ALTHOUGH HE COULDN'T COME HOME THIS WEEK-END.....JIMMY TALKS TO ME ON THE PHONE, WHEN HE GETS BACK TO KINTOCK AT NIGHT, AND TELLS ME ALL ABOUT HIS WORK............AND SO, I LISTEN, LIKE ANY GOOD WIFE SHOULD, ABOUT HIS WORK, AND IT MAKES ME HAPPY AND PROUD TO BE MARRIED TO SUCH A WONDERFUL MAN!....I ALSO GET TO LEARN JUST WHAT GOES ON IN FOOD STORES, BEHIND THE SCENES..........IT IS AMAZING!  WE NEVER THINK, THAT EVERYTIME WE GO FOOD SHOPPING, JUST WHAT A BIG ORGANIZED PRODUCTION A FOOD STORE IS!..........IT TAKES LOTS OF PEOPLE TO KEEP IT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY.............JIMMY TOLD ME THEY HAVE 3000 TURKEYS IN THE BACK, FOR SALE THIS WEEK.......ONE CUSTOMER ASKED HIM, "WHAT IS THE PRICE OF THIS COCONUT?"  HE ANSWERED, "$1.29."  SHE SAID, "FOR THE WHOLE THING?".....HE LAUGHED, "OF COURSE FOR THE WHOLE THING.....DO YOU EXPECT ME TO CUT IT IN HALF FOR YOU?"............JIMMY ALWAYS TELLS ME THESE LITTLE FUNNY STORIES THAT TAKE PLACE ON HIS JOB...........

WELL, I'LL GO NOW.....I THINK ABOUT JIMMY ALL DAY, EVERY MINUTE, AND I GET CHILLS THROUGH ME, JUST THINKING OF HIM............DESPITE THAT HE IS AT KINTOCK, THE HALF-WAY HOUSE, WE HAVE THE PERFECT RELATIONSHIP, AND LOVE , AND MARRIAGE..........AND WE HOPE ALL OTHERS IN OUR WORLD CAN BE AS BLESSED AS WE ARE......................FRAN

Oh-too bad he can't come home....I know you were hoping & praying....good news he's out of the delie, right? I think unless it's your business, like unless you OWN the deli, it can be to darn boring! talking to people is better anyway. have a good phone conversation tonight, and get some sleep. ~Diane~

You are such a supporting wife. I can feel the love that bonded between you and Jimmy. Best wishes.
