CRAF...JIMMY JUST CALLED

JIMMY JUST CALLED ME FROM CRAF...IT WAS 12:30 pm.  HE'S DOING OK...HIS HAPPY, OPTIMISTIC SELF....WE BOTH SPOKE ABOUT HOW HAPPY WE ARE THAT IT WILL SOON BE CHRISTMAS...AND IT WILL BE OVER...THEN NEW YEAR'S, AND AFTER THAT, SPRING WILL NOT BE FAR BEHIND........IT'S STRANGE HOW WE THINK ABOUT TIME AND LIFE....IN SEGMENTS.

JIMMY'S ROOM MATE IS A CRAZY ONE!....HE TALKS CONSTANTLY. TO HIMSELF, TELLING STORIES........I SAID TO JIMMY, "HE MUST BE SCHIZOPHRENIC."   JIMMY SAID, "HOW DID YOU GUESS?'........" I WORKED WITH THOSE TYPE OF PEOPLE IN NEW YORK CITY IN A HOSPITAL, FOR 16 YEARS , JIMMY!"............"AND I BET HE'S ON THORAZINE, TOO!"............"BABY, YOU KNOW YOUR STUFF!...YES, HE TOLD ME HE IS ON THAT," JIMMY LAUGHED.

"JUST GO ALONG WITH HIM, AND LET HIM TALK....YOU MAY EVEN WANT TO AGREE WITH HIM , WHEN HE SAYS THINGS LIKE 'the sky is made of marbles.'..............YES, THEY LIKE YOU TO AGREE WITH THEM, AND SEE THINGS FROM THEIR CRAZY PERSPECTIVE........"

JIMMY ATE FOR BREAKFAST, HARD , FROZEN WAFFLES.  FOR LUNCH, HOT DOGS WITH ROLLS THAT WERE NOT ONLY FROZEN, BUT STALE.................."YOU KNOW I DON'T LET STUFF LIKE THAT GET TO ME.  I JUST LAUGH AT THINGS."

"FRAN, I'VE BEEN LAYING HERE ALL DAY THINKING ABOUT YOU, AND THE PLACES WE WILL GO TO , ONCE I AM RELEASED............RESTAURANTS, SHOWS, SHOPPING......ETC. , ETC., ETC."

"I'LL BE GOING OUT TO FOOD SHOP, AND GET PET FOOD, TO STOCK UP ON THINGS, IN CASE OF A MAJOR SNOW STORM.......I HATE GOING OUT INTO THE CHEERFUL CHRISTMAS SHOPPERS."....I SAID.

"FRAN, THE MAJORITY OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE OUT THERE SHOPPING, AND TRYING TO FIND HAPPINESS, SOMEHOW."........IT IS DIFFERENT FOR US.  WE FOUND OUR HAPPINESS IN EACH OTHER...WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY BECAUSE WE ARE IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER...WE ARE CONNECTED IN A WAY THAT MOST PEOPLE WISH THEY HAD...............EVAN BEING SEPERATED FOR 3 YEARS...IT REALLY DOESN'T AFFECT US.............WE DO NOT SEEK HAPPINESS IN A HOLIDAY, OR WHATEVER.......WE ALREADY HAVE HAPPINESS THROUGH OUR LOVE AND DEVOTION FOR EACH OTHER.".........JIMMY SAID.

HE ALSO SAID, "AND PLEASE DON'T CAUSE A RIOT IN PUBLIC WHEN YOU GET OUT THERE SHOPPING!"..........WHAT JIMMY MEANS, IS THAT PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS ATTRACTED TO ME, AND START TALKING TO ME IN PUBLIC....THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE THERE THAT NEEDS MY HELP...EVEN LITTLE CHILDREN, RUN OVER TO ME, AND SOMETIMES HANG ON TO MY SHOPPING CART.....

WELL....SEE YOU ALL LATER!...............FRAN

I can't believe they put mental patients in the same cells as "sane" people.  Most people in prison truly do belong in a mental facility, according to what I have read....scary thought that they aren't getting real treatment before they get released, it seems they are just in the habit of drugging them up.

You guys will survive this all.
