ONE YEAR OUT OF PRISON

IT IS EXACTLY ONE YEAR THAT JIMMY HAS BEEN OUT OF PRISON.   HE CAME HOME FROM THE HALF-WAY HOUSE ON SEPT. 18. 2006.

HE HAD TO REPORT TO PAROLE ON THE DAY HE CAME HOME, SO WE BOTH WENT.   PAROLE WAS IN A DISTANT CITY, SO WE HAD TO FIND TRANSPORTATION TO GET THERE....................

YESTERDAY, HIS PAROLE OFFICER CAME TO VISIT HIM  HE WAS WORKING, BUT I SPOKE TO HER.................NICE LADY.

............................AND SO, EVERYTHING GRADUALLY ENFOLDED, AND WE ARE NOW WHERE WE ARE IN LIFE............

ONE YEAR IS A LONG TIME...................

AND 3.5 YEARS TO WAIT FOR YOUR HUSBAND IN PRISON, IS EVEN LONGER.....................

....................AND SO, ALL THE PRISON WIVES READING THIS REMEMBER...............IF I COULD DO IT, SO CAN YOU............

IN LIFE, TIME CHANGES.....................

............................THINGS CHANGE..............

................................THE WORLD IS ALWAYS IN A STATE OF REVOLUTION.....................OF CHANGE, THAT IS.

.....................IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE A LONG TIME TO WAIT FOR YOUR MAN TO COME OUT OF PRISON, JUST REMEMBER ...............IT WILL SOON BE ALL OVER.................

WELL NOW, TO TALK ON A HAPPIER NOTE , JIMMY AND I WENT TO RED LOBSTER THE OTHER DAY.  IT WAS A MUCH PRETTIER ONE THEN IN LAS VEGAS.  WE TREATED A FRIEND OUT FOR HIS BIRTHDAY.  JIMMY HAD A DELICIOUS STEAK AND THE FRIEND HAD A SHRIMP SCAMPI DISH.  I HAD AFRICAN LOBSTER TAIL, WHICH WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!

ANOTHER DAY WE WENT TO OUR FAVORITE CHINESE BUFFET, AND OF COURSE I LOADED UP ON CLAMS ON THE HAL-SHELL, OYSTERS, SOFT SHELL CRABS AND SHRIMP..............I JUST LOVE IT!

NOW THAT SUMMER IS OVER, THE JERSEY BOARDWALK IS CLOSING UP........................

AS WE CALL IT............."LIVING DOWN THE SHORE."..............................AND THAT IS JUST WHERE WE LIVE!.......................THE BOARDWALK, THE RIDES, THE FOODS!

JIMMY AT WORK TEXT  MESSAGES ME ALL DAY..............AND SO, EVEN AT MY AGE, I LEARNED TO TEXT MESSAGE HIM BACK!...................AND SO IT IS FUN!.................WE ARE LIKE 2 TEENAGERS, TEXT MESSAGING BACK AND FORTH.

A NEW MOVIE THEATRE OPENED NEAR OUR HOUSE..............ABOUT 2 MINUTES AWAY.  IT OPENED 2 MONTHS AGO AND WE HAVE SEEN 30 MOVIES, SO FAR........................YES, 30 MOVIES!

IT IS A COLLISIUM TYPE THEATRE, LIKE IN VEAGS, AND IT IS EASY FOR JIMMY TO WHEEL ME IN, AND THE SCREEN IS NICE AND LARGE FOR ME TO SEE......................ONE DAY I WILL LIST THE MOVIES WE HAVE SEEN...................LAST ONE WAS JODIE FOSTER;S MOVIE, WHICH WAS GREAT!

AND SO, I'LL GO NOW!

TIME TO GET READY FOR JIMMY!

....................................FRAN AND JIMMY
