Hey! I got your letter and I’m happy to know that you got mine. (LOL) I know that letter was a long one, but I had to give you details and I wanted to see if my brain would hold up because normally I get to a certain point and I lose my train of thought. So please explain to me when or were you got confused at so I can rectify, where you got confused at. I didn’t proof read it because, I was exhausted and to tired to rewrite it.
I figured Mikey (Toady) would tell you I had moved and I remember telling you to go to that website (A.L.D.O.D. Inmate Search).
Oh you wouldn’t know my cousin because he went to Horn Hill and from there to Andalusia. They lived out in the sticks (country) — like even farther out than Babbie (ha). He did stay in Lee for a little while, but he never went to any of the schools. His family is the Williams, I don’t know if you remember any of them but they got a big family.
I’ve seen that book The Sellout somewhere in one of these prison but I have never read it. And I’m not bias at all. I like to read different things. I find some books that women have wrote very interesting and profound. I read this book called The Blackman’s Guide to Understanding the Black Woman. It got my attention and actually gave me something to analyse. I can’t remember the authors name, but I think she was Muslim.
So I don’t think reading (Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine) should be a problem.
The Catcher in the Rye. Is it based on something I said about me coming back and forth to prison?
This prison situation has definitely took a toll on me.
Let me tell you the insane part first. I’ve gotten out and find myself riding by myself and start thinking about prison, almost like I miss the place. Is that crazy or what? Also when things get hard for me, its like I remind myself how easy it is in prison. But this is not were I want to be.
Things have gotten hard for me here. No one is there anymore, no support and my pride is to big. In some cases I’ve sold drugs in prison jut to eat and buy my hygiene and sneakers.
Now this guy I met back in 2012 at Bullock Correctional Facility and we net up again in a place in Shelby County (Columbiana) called Alabama Therapeutic Education Facility (A.T.E.F.) He got out and now work for this Law Firm in Birmingham as a paralegal. He told me that he would go to the parole board for me, if I agree to go to a halfway house in B-ham. He’s a white guy that somehow got in good with the people at the parole board. From all the time I’ve done with him he has always been fair and honest with me. So hopefully his plan and my decision we work out. I had a female friend once that wanted me to move to Rochester, Ny with her, but I know that would’ve been dangerous. But I do got people up there and always wanted to go. It’s like I’m cursed to that small town of Lee and I know me going somewhere bigger and better will greater my chances of finding a good paying job.
I got out of the kitchen and I’m glad I did because its so much drama that goes on in there. Its three women stewards that work in there, so imagine how that is. I’m out on the road picking up paper or weed eating. Its not bad, but peoples driving is crazy out there, so I have to watch the cars.
Oh being on parole, they will not allow you to leave the states but I can travel here, with their permission (Parole Officer). I do recall once when I was out, I got a job for a few days, waxing floors and I asked could I go to Florida to work for a few weeks, my P.O. told he couldn’t allow me to be gone that long (maybe a night or two). So the guy couldn’t use me. They really don’t want you to go anywhere for your first 6 months on/out on parole.
I’ve been married once and got a divorce back in 2004. I pay back pay on child support, but both my children are grown.
You have a great idea and I’m willing to support you in every way possible. But you got to structure it. You are articulate when it comes to words. I can keep my name and I seem to never have a happy ending so now its time to create one. And I’m only good at telling what happened to me. So tell me what it is you need from me.
