some very, very, very good news!

JIMMY CALLED ME A LITTLE WHILE AGO WITH SOME VERY GOOD NEWS...ACTUALLY, IT IS THE NEWS WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR......

KINTOCK CALLED HIM AT WORK, AND SAID THAT THE PAROLE BOARD WILL COME TO SEE HIM TOMORROW.......I THINK, JUST MAYBE, WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR, FOR 3 YEARS WILL COME TRUE....I HATE TO SAY THINGS BEFORE THEY HAPPEN, BUT, I WANT TO BE OPTIMISTIC........ON THE PHONE JIMMY COULD BARELY GET THE WORDS OUT, HE WAS SO EXCITED............I AM VERY EXCITED....FUNNY THING IS, I HAVE BEEN ASKING GOD THESE PAST 2 DAYS TO PLEASE LET PAROLE CALL.....IN ONE WAY, I WAS KIND OF EXPECTING THAT CALL TO COME IN.

AND SO, I IMAGINE EVERYONE IS AT HOME BAKING THOSE HOLIDAY PIES, AND FOODS....SHOPPING, COOKING, AND PREPARATIONS ARE UNDER WAY.......PEOPLE ARE TRAVELING TO BE WITH THEIR FAMILIES..........I'M THINKING OF YOU ALL..........

IT'S COLD AND WINDY AND RAINY HERE IN JERSEY, AND THEY EVEN PREDICT SOME SNOW FLURRIES ON THANKSGIVING...............WELL, I'M HERE, IN THE HOUSE, WARM AS CAN BE, WITH THE ANIMALS............

I'LL LET YOU KNOW TOMORROW, WHAT HAPPENS WITH PAROLE...........IT IS THE 3RD HOLIDAY SEASON THAT JIMMY HAS BEEN AWAY IN PRISON, AND NOW IN A HALF-WAY HOUSE................FOR ME, EVERY HOLIDAY SEASON JUST GETS WORSE AND WORSE, BECAUSE I KEEP LOSING INTEREST IN IT ALL....HOWEVER, YOU'LL BE PROUD OF ME, CAUSE I HAVE THE RADIO STATION ON THAT PLAYS CONTINUAL CHRISTMAS MUSIC..........ALMOST EVERY SONG, SAYS THINGS LIKE , "ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU, " AND IF YOU CAN ONLY BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS."...........YES, IT IS SO TRUE..................

MAY EVERYONE HAVE A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!.....WHEREVER YOU MAY BE, OR WHOEVER YOU ARE, TRY TO ENJOY THANKSGIVING FOR WHAT IT IS...........FRIENDS AND FAMILY, LOVE AND MEMORIES, THANKFUL FOR ALL THAT WE HAVE IN THIS LIFE, EVEN IF IT MAY NOT BE MUCH...THANKFUL TO BE ABLE TO LOVE AND BE LOVED...............AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON....AND, DON'T EAT TOO MUCH TURKEY!.........WITH LOVE,  FRAN

Oh that's great news Fran! Thank God he's coming home....I bet it seemed like 30 years instead of 3! You must be in a good mood if you have Christmas songs on-even I can't/won't listen to them any more-it's just to sad for me, they make me real blue,
and I'll have a crying jag.....don't want that to happen. Have a nice holiday.....~Diane~
