Please Forgive Me...Sweetheart

To my darling husband,
Before you return from your business trip I just want to let you know about the small accident I had with the pick up truck when I turned into the driveway. Fortunately it's not too bad and I really didn't get hurt, so please don't worry too much about me. I was coming home from Wal-Mart, and when I turned into the driveway I accidentally push ed down on the accelerator instead of the brake.

The garage door is slightly bent but the pick up fortunately came to a halt when it bumped into your car. I am really sorry, but I know with your kind-hearted personality you will forgive me. You know how much I love you and care for you my sweetheart. I am enclosing a picture for you. I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again.

Your loving wife. XXX

P.S. Your girlfriend called .

Latest From China

I have not heard from my son ,Martin, for a while. He lives outside of Shanghai. He teaches english there. Crystal, my daughter heard from him at New Years. He was happy. Cool.
The Chinese government blocks FACEBOOK and other internet communication at times...and I miss talking to him there...and seeing photos etc. His girlfriend's english name is 'Rose'...COOL.

Here's the latest photo I have of him and Rose.

Taken From Jaymes MYSPACE PAGE: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=110333449&blogId=503513416
"drowning Current mood: accomplished
well yesterday me and 2 good freinds were floating the stillaguamish river, the float started later in the day, about 2ish ran into some good people, and people i would rather not see, but the day was good the sun was out, beers were going down very nice. might have even partaked in a little bowl session(needed to decompress). there was a group of people in front of us oh about 200 yards or so. the sun was going down and we were pushin pretty hard to get to "big rock" they were pushin hard to. 2 woman and a guy, the guy was pushin the woman a mother and daughter i find out later... we got to within about 60yards of them, there was a little riffle"fast water" ahead of them about 30 yards oh so. the first raft makes it, the second raft makes it, the third raft didnt make it.. this was a 62 year old grandma, she hit a log in the river, popped her tube and sucked her under!! the current was strong, well i come upon this log, and the people that she is with are in shock they didnt say help, she's drowning, nothin.. which is real fuckin strange... o.k so i go by this log in the water and no shit there is this woman stuck under the water, no she had to be there for at least 20 seconds. i fly of my tube, but the current is movin real fast and i went past her by about 2 feet. i bust my ass to get back up to her. now mind you another 10 to 15 seconds have gone by. so now were up to about 40 seconds this woman was under water in fast water. i get a a hand on her and then the current took me down again. this woman is stuck so she cant help herself... here comes Aaron he was about 30 feet behind me just enjoying the day.. he doesnt now yet was is happening. this is taking place sooooo fast, i scream at him"grab her, grab her!!" he's like "grab who" and as soon as he said that he saw her, jumped of his tube. he got to the woman, another 15 seconds has gone by. so we are up to a minute now. Aaron is trying to get this woman free... finally he has her but she in not breathing. i am about 6 feet away in the current just staying put, we agreed to let her float down to me.. he was in real fast water, so he lets go and she sinks, he grabs her 1 more time gets her head out of the water and pushes her to me. now this woman is a dead stick her lungs were full of water and she wasnt breathing, i grab her put my arm under her chest and as i'm heading to shore i am pumping water out of this woman. she is still out when i get her to a safe spot, about 2 feet of water i put her head on my chest and repeated "come on lady breath" like 4 or 5 times. she started throwing up water, she is breathing, i allmost died just trying to catch my breath, as well did aaron. we got her put her in a boat that was going by a spanish family that couldnt even speak english but they saw what had just happened. we get this woman to "big rock" around 8ish she took are phone numbers and names... this was a day i will never forget... janet i'm glad you are here to see another day...
