“It is hot weather time here – 90 Farinheight – The foothills are all dry grass as far as the eye can see --. The trees are still green from the winter and spring rain nourishments -- . Please say ‘Hello’ to Judge Crow for me --. I hope that he and his family are ‘ok’ and doing well --. Thank you.
“If either you or Judge Crow know of a Tort Lawyer in the Sacramento &/or San Francisco area, feel free to send me his or her address --. I believe I could sue the Catholic Church, and/or a specific priest, for sexual misconduct, and/or psychological sabotage --. I have letters incriminating said priest --. Even in my original trial testimony, the questions and answers from my defense lawyer and myself incriminated the priest and the church --. That was some 29 years ago – it is on record in the trial transcripts --. So, if you know of a lawyer in the San Francisco &/or Sacramento areas, feel free to let me know --. Thank you --.
“Boulder Creek & Big Basin Redwood State Park in Santa Cruz County, California, are really beautiful areas this time of year --. Big Basin probably sells photos on line, i.e., Calif State Parks.com. Really Big Trees!!
