BAYSIDE STATE PRISON

NO PHONE CALLS FROM JIMMY, YET.  IT IS NOW 16 DAYS.  ANOTHER READER OF THIS JOURNAL, WHOSE HUSBAND IS AT BAYSIDE, HAS ALSO NOT RECEIVED ANY PHONE CALLS...I'M WONDERING IF BAYSIDE STILL EXISTS, OR WHAT!  DID IT SUDDENLY DISAPPEAR INTO THIN AIR?....IT ALWAYS HAD A VERY CREEPY FEELING TO IT, WHEN I WOULD VISIT JIMMY THE FIRST YEAR...THE SUMMER OF 2003.

IT WAS LIKE , I WOULD DRIVE THERE, THROUGH THICK FORESTS, WINDING ROADS....IN THE MIST OF THE MORNING.......I WOULD PASS THE CORNFIELDS, AND BARNS AND SILOS, FINALLY ARRIVING AT 7AM....TO ME, IT WAS KIND OF SPOOKY!....BUT THEN AGAIN, I'VE NEVER BEEN IN PRISON, MYSELF!

TO GET THERE AT 7 AM, I WOULD LEAVE MY HOUSE AT 5:30 AM, THE LATEST....WHICH MEANT I HAD TO GET UP AT LEAST AT 4:30 AM....I WAS LIKE THE ONLY CAR DRIVING DOWN THE GARDEN STATE PARKWAY AT THAT TIME OF DAY, ON A SATURDAY, OR SUNDAY MORNING........WHAT WE WILL DO FOR LOVE, I JUST DON'T KNOW!

 I RECEIVE A LETTER FROM JIMMY EVERYDAY, AND I SEND HIM SEVERAL LETTERS, CARDS AND ENVELOPES EVERYDAY, FILLED WITH NEWSPAPER ARTICLES  OF THINGS THAT WILL INTEREST HIM, AND SOME COMPUTER PRINT-OUTS.........I RE-STARTED HIS SUBSCRIPTION TO THE "WALL STREET JOURNAL.".......HE JUST CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT READING THAT PAPER.......NOT ONLY FOR THE STOCK-MARKET AND BUSINESS, BUT FOR INTERESTING ARTICLES, MANY OF WHICH HE SENDS ME.

HE ASKED ME TO ONCE AGAIN ORDER HIM 2 BOOKS ON-LINE, WHICH I JUST DID THROUGH BARNES AND NOBLE.  THEY ARE 2 PAPERBACK BOOKS BY CLIVE CUSSLER, FICTION ADVENTURE, CALLED "VIXEN 05," AND "TIDEWATER."  JIMMY SAID THESE ARE THE ONLY TWO, OF THAT AUTHOR HE HASN'T READ.

SO, AS YOU CAN SEE, WE ARE KEEPING BUSY, AND THE TIME IS MOVING ALONG................

I HAVE NOW GOTTEN INTO PLAYING "BOOKWORM, " ON THE COMPUTER...IT IS FUN, AND CAN KEEP YOU GOING FOR HOURS!......

ANYONE INTERESTED IN WRITING TO AN INMATE,  AKA, PEN-PAL, JUST LET ME KNOW, AND I WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE FACTS.........HE IS A 41/M, SINGLE, WHO HAS NOT RECEIVED ANY MAIL IN 2 1/2 YEARS.  HE IS AT BAYSIDE STATE PRISON..  HE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SOMEONE TO WRITE TO, AND HE ONLY HAS AROUND 5 MORE MONTHS LEFT TIL PAROLE...............SO, JUST LET ME KNOW!

MAY YOU ALL HAVE A NICE DAY!................FRAN

I laughed when you said, "WHAT WE WILL DO FOR LOVE, I JUST DON'T KNOW!" cause I remember when the hubby was fresh out of bootcamp and down in Florida for A school, he was homesick so I would drive 5 and half hours one way just to pick him up on Friday night and than 5 and half hours home with him only to turn around and take him back early Sunday mornings. I did this every weekend for 2 months. I was so exhausted but I loved him and wanted to spend any little amount of time with him I could. So I AGREE that we will do a lot of things in the name of love. Now I am starting to get pissed myself that the phones arent fixed....they are getting as bad as the Navy about not getting up those lines of Communication. Thank God they let ya'll send letters....we can send them too except it takes 2 weeks to get one when they are deployed. Maybe soon Fran so just hang in there. Hugggs Robin

I hope you can here from him soon...that is sad about someone being forgotten in prison like that and not having anyone on the outside to talk to for a few years.

Fran, when's Jimmy's parole date? Isn't it sometime in the middle of next month? Can't be too much more longer.
