In our local paper......

Female inmate dies in jail cell...(click on link)this was in our local paper...Ventura County Acorn. This female inmate was the grandmother of Titus and Amelia(my 8 yo grandson and 7 yo granddaughter)..their father's mother.my grandchildren were there,during the weekend visitation with their father,who lives with his mother!,and saw her arrested!! This was such a terrible thing for them to have witnessed and to know she died in a jail cell. Titus and Amelia went to her funeral last Friday.   Say a prayer for my granchildren...such an awful thing for them to have gone through at such a young age! I pray they were not witness to the charges she pled guilty to...and that there were not other instances of violence that they saw.

ok..I'm on my soapbox again........

Eddie's waste of a "sperm donor" has petitoned child support to review his court ordered child support of $63.00 per MONTH!!!  this was just signed by the judge  on May 23rd!!! it is June 20th..and that ass just requested it June 18th!!  mind you..he hasn't paid any of it..and it only goes back to January of this year!!!!!!!!!! he has no responsibility for any time prior to that!! REALLY ???? $63.00 A MONTH IS TOO MUCH?..AND MIND YOU, $63.00 IS THE MINIMUM!!!! EDDIE IS NOW 4...HE HAS PAID NOTHING! Hey, maybe he and the other 2's Dad should get together for the "WE DON'T SUPPORT OUR KIDS FAN CLUB"(THE OTHER DAD HASN'T PAID ANYTHING AND HE IS IN ARREARS OF OVER $32,000.00 +!!!
EDDIES DAD HAS A DAUGHTER THAT WAS BORN ABOUT 2 YEARS AFTER EDDIE..guess who he takes care of?
Eddies dad just bought a truck..he has an expensive cell phone(mine is a sony erickson..not a smartphone,no 4G...I have grandkids living with me and i can't afford it!)
COME ON CALIFORNIA...WAKE UP AND MAKE THESE ASSHOLES HELP SUPPORT THEIR KIDS!!!!!!.....NOT ENOUGH TO TAKE THEIR DRIVERS LICENSE...PUT THEM IN JAIL LIKE OTHER STATES DO...PUT THEM TO WORK CLEANING HIGHWAYS AND CITY STREETS FOR MONEY TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT..IF THEY CAN'RT FIND A JOB, LET THEM DO WORK FOR THE STATE ...HIGHWAYS,STREETS,CLEAN COURTHOUSES,ETC!!!!!! 
WHY DO THESE MEN NOT HAVE PRIDE? NO CHILD SUPPORT..CUT OFF THEIR BALLS SINCE THEY DON'T HAVE ANY ANYWAYS!!!!!!!!
THANKS FOR LISTENING......
I FEEL A BIT BETTER NOW!!!!

Prayers to all...

in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area where the tornadoes have hit...praying for your safety. have just seen  it on the news and they are saying no reports of injuries so far.
May God keep you all safe. I know its also a very frightening time for those of you who have friends and family in the area..please know that my thoughts are with all of you!

Thursday, March 29, 2012

I will be visiting off and on. My husband was hit by a car yesterday evening while crossing the street on his way home from the market. He was in the crosswalk,green walk signal and the person in the car wasn't paying attention and hit him. Spent several hours in the ER  last night..No broken bones, but ,he is banged up! Knee swollen(will have to wait to see if there are torn ligaments or meniscus) and his back and neck and hand is hurting.He is in a knee immobilizer.
A very scary thing..in a heartbeat I could have lost the man who is my reason for living. I'm guessing his time wasn't up and God still has plans for him!!
I spent last night just waking up off and on..and looking at him...thinking how lucky we all were!!!
If you haven't told the people you love how much they mean to you today.....just remember it can all be gone in a second!

Donald Trump’s sons criticized after brutal hunting photos released | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News

Donald Trump’s sons criticized after brutal hunting photos released | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News:omg!! you have to see this photo of D.Trump Jr. holding an elephant tail he cut off! The Donald think its fine for his sons to participate in this behavior. I am asking all of you to boycott ANY TRUMP BUSINESS AND HIS SHOW THE APPRENTICE. For him to think this behavior is ok is appalling.

WHY ...........

TO MY UTTER DISBELIEF AND DISMAY..YES DISMAY!!...I FIND THAT MY 2 OLDEST GRANDCHILDREN'S FATHER HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO SERVE HIS SENTENCE AT HOME..HOUSE ARREST WITH AN ANKLE BRACELET. NOW,MAY I REMIND YOU ALL..THIS IS FOR A DRUG FELONY...HE HAS HAD 5 YEARS TO COMPLETE PROP 36 AND DIDN'T..HE'S HAD 3 STRIKES ON THAT..SENTENCED TO 135 DAYS..DIDN'T SHOW TO START HIS JAIL TIME..HAD A WARRANT FOR  3 MONTHS,ARRESTED FOR THE WARRANT AND FOR RESISTING WHEN THEY PICKED HIM UP FINALLY ! ..AMAZING...THEY "WAIVED " THE FEE FOR THE ANKLE-BRACELET /MONITORING..WHICH IS VERY HIGH!!.....OK..WHO BESIDES ME THINK THAT PERHAPS SOMETHING HERE SMELLS REALLY FUNNY? WHO,BESIDES ME THINKS PERHAPS HE IS SUCK--- SOMEONES DIC- FOR THIS TREATMENT? YEP..i'M REALLY PISSED OFF THAT THIS ASSHOLE CAN BASICALLY WALK FROM ANY JAIL TIME,WALK FROM NOT PAYING CHILD SUPPORT,WALK FROM SUPPOSEDLY NOT BEING ABLE TO DRIVE(WHICH HE DOES,WITH HIS MOTHER IN THE CAR AND SHE KNOWS HE HAS NO LICENCE OR  INSURANCE...WHICH THE CHILD CUSTODY COURT ORDER SAYS HE MUST HAVE)..HOW CAN ONE PERSON CONSTANTLY FLAUNT HIS DISREGARD OF THE LAW AND THE COURTS AND COME UP FMELLING LIKE A ROSE,SO TO SPEAK.
CAN YOU TELL I AM SERIOUSLY PISSED OFF!!!!
A DRUG FELONY!!!!!!!!! ARREST WARRANT FOR NOT SHOWING UP TO SERVE HIS TIME!! THEY "WAIVE" FEES!!!.......................WHAT ?!!!!!
OK..I'VE HAD MY RANT..WHY DO I NOT FEEL BETTER?
WHY..I WILL BE HONEST..I WANTED THAT BASTARD TO ROT IN JAIL AND PERHAPS GET HURT WHILE HE WAS THERE!! I WANTED HIM TO SIT IN JAIL FOR 135 DAYS AND NOT HAVE FRESH AIR OR ANY COMFORTS OF HOME. GOD FORGIVE ME..BUT I WANTED HIM TO SUFFER ..BIG TIME!
OK ..I NEED TO LET GO OF THIS ANGER........MAYBE LATER!!!!
THANKS FOR LISTENING. I'M REALLY NOT AN AWFUL PERSON.....JUST REALLY MAD AT THE INJUSTICE !!
