hello

i just spoke with the telephone lady, at t-netix's...she said she got jimmy's paperwork yesterday.  now, mind you, the social worker went to see him last week, on wed., to tell him to re-submit the paperwork.  it is over 1 week later.  she said his phne will probably be turned on by tomorrow, friday, at the end of the business day....

it is only 11 more days till he leaves for the half-way house.

despite living in an age of computers, advanced technology, space travel, etc, the "system" we live in is a slow-moving, antiquated one, unfortunately, and the prime example is the prison system...

i'll be going to a doctor's appointment , now.

I hope that means you hear from him soon.  At least he will be in the half-way house soon.  Good luck with your dr appt.

You know he's in PRISON for a reasion it's NOT supposed to be life of luxery! Yes I know you did nothing wrong but he did and so for there you have to suffer along with him. See I have a friend whos a gaurd in a prision here in WI he says you punish the whole family that way they stop and think twice about doing something dumb again! So knowing why this is all being done I'm sorry but I have to say I DO NOT FEEL SORRY FOR YOU!!! You can block me I don't care but this is my thought!!!

hope your doctor's appt went okay, Fran. I do hope you can finally talk with Jimmy at least one time before he gets released to that halfway house. Ridiculous!

This is in reference to comments made by "mtdewkd1995." No one expects sympathy from you or anyone. Yes, everyone is entitle to their opinions, however, if you have nothing positive to say then don't. Look your self in the mirror, and if you are one without any sins then you can cast the first stone.

My mother always taught me that if you don't have something nice to say then keep your mouth shut. I am so happy that she did not block mtdewkd1995. It leaves everyone in J-land to see that there still are heartless people in here. correct me if I am wrong but nowhere in this entry do I see anyone claiming that he should be living a life of luxury......NOW, that is my thought. Yes, he may have done something wrong but if you read back enough in this journal and read the entire thing you would see that he atleast had the courage to admit that he did something worng and turned himself in. Now that my friends takes courage to do.

I was always taught, if I didn't have anything nice to sayto not say anything at all.  I am sorry there are such mean people who leave such nasty commments!

I mean I can understand that maybe the person was trying to say that as a deterrent people should see what prison can do to their family, but they said it in an inappropriate way.  I mean I feel sorry for anyone who falls victim to a system designed to make criminals instead of helping them...and then they wonder why the recidivism rate is too high.  I think it is noble to write about your cause/problem because it brings light to an issue that most people fail to see....
