COUNTDOWN

7 DAYS TO GO, AND 1 WAKE-UP  DAY.....

IT IS 9/10, TODAY, AND HIS RELEASE DATE IS 9/18/06.......

IT IS VERY SOON..................

I KIND OF WONDER HOW IT WILL BE FOR THIS MAN, OR ANY MAN, FOR THAT MATTER, NOT TO HAVE TO SLEPP IN A ROOM FILLED WITH MANY OTHER MEN...............TO BE ABLE TO SLEEP IN HIS OWN ROOM, NOW, WITH HIS WIFE.............

YES, FOR 3.5 YEARS, JIMMY SLEPT IN A BIG ROOM WITH OTHER MEN.....................

HE SLEPT FOR 3.6 YEARS IN A SMALL, HARD BUNK BED.............WITH MAYBE 1 PILLOW A RIPPED UP PIECE OF SHEET.........................HIS BUBKIE SLEEPING ABOVE HIM...............THINGS LIKE THAT.................NOW, HE WILL BE HOME FOR GOOD IN HIS SOFT, KING SIZE BED, FILLED WITH MANY PILLOWS, COMFORTERS, AND SOME STUFFED ANIMALS....................AND OH YES, THE 2 CATS AND DOG LAYING ON THE BED, AND RUNNING AROUND.........

..........YES, TJHE SIMPLE PLEASURES IN LIFE!

FUNNY THING IS, JIMMY NEVER, EVER COMPLAINED OF IT ALL.............................EVEN WHEN HE WAS LOCKED AWAY IN A 9 FT. BY 8 FT. CELL................AND COULD CALL ME ONCE A DAY, WHEN HE WAS LET OUT FOR A FEW MINUTES............

AND THEN, THERE WAS THE TIME, THE PHONES WERE OFF IN BAYSIDE STATE PRISON............THEY WERE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH THE PHONE SYSTEM..............JIMMY AND I COULD NOT SPEAK TO EACH OTHER FOR SOMETHING LIKE 46 DAYS, AT THAT TIME.............

AND SO, HE WILL SOON BE HOME...........COMFORTABLE AND AT PEACE IN HIS OWN HOUSE............HIS OWN BED, WITH HIS WIFE AND PETS...................

AMD OH YES, THERE WILL BE NO MORE "COUNT.".............HE IS SO USED TO "COUNT,' THAT I HOPE HE WILL FORGET IT, AFTER HE ARRIVES HOME.........
