Good day to all , you maybe wondering about the photo of the lavender, and well... today's moderator will understand ! I received some letters from my husband and he has some updates and personal messages for some of the readers. Sterling had his review hearing and the outcome was......nothing new, heard the same b.s. due to "your institutional history" ... basically they said it is not up to them...it has to go to headquarters in Olympia, Wa for review. I have emailed them advocating on Sterling's behalf so we shall see... I will also work on contacting another petition site to get an official petition approved. Sterling was happy to receive a "positive behavioral observation report" , officers in IMU stating he is always respectful and polite and has not given anyone any issues while in IMU since his arrival last February 2020. I have a lot to post from Sterling but I will not overwhelm the moderator and just do a few at a time. KIM - If this is the Kim i think it is...hope you and your family are well and had a great Holiday and if you hear from Gypsy give him my love and when he arrives at the next destination, tell him to email and call my wife. Tell him I miss his good cooking and nachos ! Bobby J. Howarth - I agree prison officers do not ge a alot of recognition, inmates tend to pitch a fit when they mess up , but when they do good, no one shows them any appreciation. I do give them appreciation when it is due. They are human beings and when they act like it, they are due praise. Bobby ,thank you for being a part of this journey and I appreciate your insightful comments Clan Macafee Ireland - Blood calls to blood...I do not need to get use to knowing QOS is my sister, it has always been a very comfortable relationship. We talk and laugh all the time and I just love her and admire her spirit and dedication to family and adore her relationship with my beautiful wife. It was meant to be... my Yule present from my wife was my lineage and look where it led us. It was a priceless Yule gift, thank you my Bella Andy Clan Gordon - Brother, yes it is uncanny how the ancestral spirit survives and unites. I have to laugh at the "mischievous antics" comment. I am sure the QOS can rival anyone who dares to cross her. We both have rebel spirits !! Clan Gordon - Dear Brother, those chocolate bars were hilarious...and my wife saying what she said about the twat bar I could not stop laughing in my cell !! The guards probably think I am going mad...If they had those in the vending machines, I would yell across the visiting room..."hey babe, get me a twat and a clit !!" i can only imagine the reactions we would get...what can i say...but you have been a very important part of this blog and I cannot thank you enough. My wife is always telling me Clan Gordon stories and I just smile. We are blessed to have you in our lives and I do hope one day I can just hang out with you and the family. Bella adores you and thank you for being there for her, It comforts me that we have kin to watch out for her as well. I will post the rest tomorrow with some more updates from Sterling. Hope everyone is well and healthy and blessings to you all !!!
