Hello Follower and Looker’s:  Here seems to be a good start as request have been asking more about Mike, Shawn and all the persons involved, asking what chapter they wanted to know about only brought up the fact they seemed to be wanting to know more about each of them, with all the inquiries it was not easy to break down! most were asking what will happen to them, even a few got mad because Josh, Brian and Lisa were left behind, and let’s not forget Donna a few did not like her and was glad we got rid of her before something happen to all of them, In the town chapter it was hard to place what happen was going to happen if they couldn’t find the right shell and everything that when on that they had not even experienced yet that had changed now thanks to Doc and Ma only leaving them with many unanswered question, it was a roller coaster for all of them even Brian on the Farm but we know it had to happen tears followed as they had to leave not wanting to without finding more answerers than they were getting.

Chapter (4070) 70pt 2a

         YellowJacket Get the Coal Revisited

Hello Reader sorry it’s been awhile been busy with Scripts and screen play rewrites, 

Now working back now to what I like write here so hope you like it so far. Always will

Yellow Jacket Mike and Shawn’s Adventure Has returned. Thank You Followers.

Mike and Faye were over by the ship walking around the logs mostly looking under the ship, Mat sitting next to me on the log with Jeff watching them and keeping an eye open for the Raycoons to return, Mat pointed over to the left side of the ship, looking back over to them coming around the ship with Mike just shrugging his shoulders walking around to the doorway with Faye, Mike step inside while Faye waited looking around and under it again, Mike jumped out almost tripping on the logs looking at them pushing them away from the door way heading back to us, watching the ambers and Raycoons looking at us from the woods.

“Hey Shawn did you see that” Mike said standing in front of me wiping his Jeans off
“We all seen it Mike you almost went looking at the sky”
“We’ll at least we have more fire wood now” pointing over around the ship area
“Great what about the ship” looking up at him sideways still trying to watch the raccoons
“It seems fine’ must have been a quirk or something” smiling back looking for a soda
Looking up with a frown “Quirk or Something”
“What else could it have been? Any soda left” seeing only empty’s

“By the ship there’s more”

“We need to get it covered before dark” Mike said just walking back towards the ship

We all started helping move the branches and logs to the side and moving a few by the pit for later, Mike took what he could of green branches placing them around the ship with Mat and Jeff doing what they could to help, running in an out of the woods bringing back fresh green branches with plenty of leaves, once it was covered pretty good we return to the logs sitting down having our sodas and placing a few more logs on the ambers.

Just when everything seemed like it was fine enjoying our little fire watching the crackling ambers, Mat started gagging and spitting on the ground reaching down grabbing any soda within his reach drinking it not even checking for ants just right in spitting it back right out, all of us turned watching him, bending over upchucking gagging more, quickly getting up over to him seeing on the ground everything he had eaten earlier laying in a warm pile with mixed soda and some sort of Yellow goopy stuff mixed with hamburger chucks, with the smell and sight of it making
me want to vomit grabbing my mouth not to breath it in stepping back behind him.

 “What the hell did you two eat” Mike asking standing over Jeff vomiting also.

“What did they eat are we going to be sick, I can’t watch this” Faye said rushing away right for the ship, Mike looked up at her and over to me and Mat

“Grab a few more sodas’ Faye” holding Jeff from falling over losing his balance.

Looking over I could see Jeff’s eyes all watery trying to wiping off his face with his shirt bottom, Faye returned with the soda bottles handed outward behind Mike not even looking at them like she was going to catch something moving slowly behind them over to the logs sitting down.

Mat must have gotten the worst of it on top of eating so much taking deep breaths with the sweat rolling off his forehead, Pointing over to the other sitting down Mat walked with me sitting down pale, reaching over taking the soda from Faye handing it to him, slowly drinking small sips not sure he wanted to ready to lean over if anything came up, it looked like they got it up and out of there system, Mike poking at the stuff with tree branch stripped down motioning to me to come over, like I didn’t see enough already, yea it looked the same as Mat’s, Mike moving that stick around it like it was pudding mix lifting some on the tip bringing it right up to his face, then of all things smelled it pulling the stick away just as fast.

 “What is this crap” Mike asking turning around towards the boys holding the stick towards them, Mat and Jeff both leaning back away only a few feet in front of them, Jeff shrugged his shoulders looking at it remarking  with a slight chough “Candy”

“This isn’t candy’ Shawn look what these fools were eating” Mike dropped the stick reaching down scooping up some in his hand holding it outward towards me now.

“Gross Mike” watching it dripping thru his fingers

Shaking his head back and forth, tossing his hand and the goo towards the fire pit a few times before wiping it on his pants, glaring back over at the boys, kneeling himself down making his face at them looking back over at me.

“What I didn’t tell them to eat that stuff”

Jeff sat looking towards the skyline then back trying to avoid Mike’s stares back and forth between them while placing branches of the fire.

Faye was walking around the logs staying more to the rear of the boys, coming around the front side stopping next to Mike watching him, “Why’s it smoking so much”

“It’s Green That’s Why” Mike said sarcastically back

“Won’t smoke bring others in here seeing all that smoke”

“No It’ won’t’” Looking back at Faye “go do something will you”

“Maybe I better take them to the ship” Looking at Mat and Jeff leaning over

“No Wait” Mike quickly said reaching down for one of the empty plates on the ground, turning with his dumb smile at me, he was up to something alright watching him scooping up some ash in the plate shifting it back and forth tossing a few chucks off. Right off I had this feeling what he was up to’ reaching down for one of the empty cups next along with our water jug, Mike scooted over dumping the ash inside filling it halfway, spilling some on my hand holding it out for him, tossing the plate back pointing to the jug to fill it.

Mike quickly mixing it using his finger inside before getting a small branch to mix it around, turning standing in front of them as Mat only raised his head turning away Jeff on the other hand pulled back seeing inside mud not soda or water. “Yes you’re going to drink it” Mat started to move away with Mike reaching over pointing to sit back down, Jeff just turn looking over at me hoping I’d say something.

“Mat your first; you ate that crap now you’ll drink some of this” Holding the cup in front of him

“But I can’t drink that” placing his hand to his mouth

“You’ll drink it’ or I’ll pour it down your little mouth’ Open”

“Mat closed his eyes lowering his hand opening his mouth while Mike slowly poured it in letting some drip off his lips, while Mat was pulling back from him; reaching over pushing his chin up “Now swallow it” with a big gulp it went down his tong came out moving back and forth over his lips squinting, Mike turn to Jeff just sitting holding his head back mouth wide open, Mike smiled at me already holding Jeff by his shoulder keeping him seating closing his eyes waiting for it all tight holding the log he was sitting on.

Mike reach over holding his lower jaw till the cup was empty making sure he swallowed it, tossing the empty behind him stepping back watching.

 “What did they eat making them sick like that” Faye asked

 “Shelf growth dumb stupid moron Kids”

 “English Mike” standing over Jeff watching him holding his throat glancing to Mike

“It’s Tree Sap that harden’s ok” Saying tossing more branches in

 “Why they eat that?” Faye turning back

“Tell us why you would eat some dam tree crap’ why you two” Mike asking Reaching down picking up another stick holding it outward pointing it at them, Jeff quickly jerked away getting near my side more afraid it seemed looking down at him than looking up at Mike Holding the stick Jeff seemed more like he was going to get hit, Mat seeing Jeff moving so fast seen what was happening Standings right up to Mike wiping his mouth off looking down at the stick.

“Jeff said it was rock candy why you going to beat the kid over candy” spitting on the ground bending over after getting up to fast; Jeff grabbing his stomach watching Mat before turning aside away from me then up it came with power of suggestion from Mat; Mike smiling watching them this got me mad pointing to the Stick, Mikes face just surprised holding it up before tossing it into the white smoke and low flames bellowing upward.

“Hard like Rock Candy’ They must have seen it on a tree” Mike Lowering his head

 “They ate it grouse” Faye saying walking away

“Next time you two want candy ask for it before you eat stuff from any woods ok” Mike trying to ease them a little, Slowly moving around the pit checking the flames.

Glade that was over and done with after almost two hours of sitting watching them and watching the smoky fire glowing amber color in the trees, Faye had fixed the blankets for them, handing empty cups to used if they needed while following her inside, Standing at the doorway watching them get settled sitting upward holding the cups.

“Just holler if you need something will be by the fire”

Joining Mike at the fire; Faye stayed with us by the fire mostly talking about her past friends back home, after awhile of the two going back and forth not really interested walking over checking in on them they were sleeping on top of the cover’s, stepping inside as Jeff had the blanket over his head pulling it back bending over touching the back of Jeff’s neck, he was breathing very deeply. glancing over at Mat also checking if he was warm, they were still pale an exhausted with the worst over now, looking around not seeing anything to wipe them off with Jeff was the worst his shirt front covered with dried soot droll, pulling it over his shoulders holding him upright, his eyes slowly opening then right back closed only a few times letting me clean him up with the shirt, Mat almost as bad tee shirt just pulling it right off him without him even waking once well at least they’re not sweating, Tossing the shirts away picking up the cups giving them one last look from the door way seeing were the sun turned white skin to browning.

 

 

 

Sitting down Next to Mike “How’s the boys doing” Mike asking looking into the trees

 

“Better now that both our asleep” looking at the low flame fire only glancing over to him

 

“Bet they won’t eat any more rock tree candy” Mike smiling reaching over taping my side

 

“Any Maple trees around here? we could always get Maple syrup” Faye said outward leading around me looking at Mike with her big smile almost giggling, only Mike just went all tight lipped looking back at her more Snippy growl back “Maybe we could fine one and tap it for syrup just for you” leading back kicking the dirt upward

“Ok Mike she was just kidding around” Faye sat back looking towards the ship tapping my leg pointing towards it, Looking up and over not seeing anything just returning looking at the four large raccoons in the tree line sit up looking over at us before making way towards the underbrush, Mike reach down picking up a tree stick throwing it at them watching them rushing back into the woods.

 

“Wow it won’t kill them will it?” Faye stood up looking over the fire pit checking on the raccoons running for cover, turning back staring at Mike.

 

“Who the raccoon’s” Mike just looked at her curled lip stare in question

 

“No Mat and Jeff they won’t die from that Sap stuff”

 

“No shithead not with all the coal ash flushing everything out of them” shaking his head looking over to me raising his hands upward then looking back to Faye sitting back down looking away from us “It was kind‘a grouse looking” stopping in the middle pointing towards the ship “Did’ you hear that” Faye said quickly turning more sideways around looking back and forth

 

“What did you hear’ Now?” Asking outward looking over not seeing any raccoons by the ship, raising my head trying to hear if maybe one of the boys was calling out for us

 

“Something was moving over near the ship” Faye quickly stood up looking, Mike glanced over not real interested but sat looking around the ship remarking to her “Maybe it was those Raccoons coming back from the trees besides if it was them they would be at the door”

 

“No look” stepping next to me Pointing over to the Ship’ shivers just ran up my arms pushing all the little hairs straight outward jumping off my arm hearing Mike jumping up also so fast moving the log, we all seen them this time three younger men with rifles coming thru the tree alongside the ship avoiding the tree limbs checking around the site before looking upward seeing us standing looking right at them.

 

“What are you doing here this is private property” One of them said outward checking inside the doorway, before either of us got a word out, he was taping his gun on the side while the other two moved around checking also finding the boys inside sleeping.

 

 

 

“Who’s in Here?”

 

“Leave them alone” Mike hollered out moving around Faye towards them, One of the men started tapping on the floor inside the doorway hollered outward “Get up nap times over get out here were we can see you” again he was banging on the floor till both woke up looking at him rush aside him jumping from the doorway rushing over to us watching them holding rifles, Mat dazed with Jeff staying close to us watching them go thru stuff. Jeff already shaking holding onto me while Mat stood next to Mike standing in front of us; copying Mike hands on his hips

 

“Relax kids’ were just looking” turned pointing his Rifle right at us

 

“Well did you find what you were looking for” Mike asking harshly

 

“What is this stuff just your clothes and kiddy junk” Turning to us standing in the doorway holding the box before turning it upside down poking it with the rife, turning back to the main guy who seem in charge shook his head waving then looked around the area

 

The other two didn’t look older than we did around sixteen with grins on their faces looking at us, stepping outside the ship looking around at everything before one of them turned and said outward holding his gun upward on his shoulder “Mark no smokes here come on lets go”

 

He just turn looking at them with a frown they didn’t find anything they wanted, he looked down at the ground making his nose all scrunched up lifting his head back again checking over all of us just watching them. “Man someone got sick”

“Gross, huh? Hungry help yourself” Mike said grinning at him watching one of the guys poking at the soot mess by his feet making sure he didn’t step in it walking aside it

“I need to piss” Jeff said looking up holding my waist but not wanting to move away

Mat mumbled “shut up” turning back to pointing his finger at him

“What are you kids doing here anyway” Mark asking holding his rifle downward as if everything was fine now and we would be friends or something like that

“What’s it look like were camping” Mike quickly said moving towards him

“Where’s your folks anyway”

“They’re getting water you better leave before they see what you did”

“Just looking around don’t get yourself in an uproar kid”

“Looking thru our stuff right you trash our stuff ” Mike snippy right back trying to watch what the other two were doing standing at the doorway, with rifles on the re shoulders placing the stuff back in the boxes and setting them aside just inside the door by the seats.

“Mark come on let’s get out of here” the younger boy said moving away from the door looking to the pathway leading in, both stopped looking back at Mark waiting for him

“Wow I’m scared your daddy will get mad” Mark said looking back at them walking away

“Should be back anytime, have a seat why don’t you” Mike said pointing to the logs trying to get the best of him now only making us tensed just thinking about him and his waving rifle

“Mark’ come on” the one said standing at the pathway looking back

Turning looking at the others walking away “How come we didn’t see any cars? ”

“Because we were dropped off ok’ now go join your friend’s chicken shit”

“Wise mouth hu’ are you think your tuff or something I have a gun’ what’s with him” holding his rifle upward pointing it at Jeff moving back and forth standing with me

“He’s got to piss and your scaring him pointing it us” Mike stepping more in front of us hiding Jeff from his view

“Go boy i won’t stop you”

Looking down at Jeff holding his front squinting his eyes telling him softly “Go ahead its ok Jeff just don’t go far stay near the trees” Jeff turning around dropping the front of his pants reliving himself, Faye quickly moved away after seeing him staying more in front of us, Mike and Mat only looked back seeing him turning right back Mike tightening his lip glaring at Mark.

“Ok were leaving we didn’t do anything here’ did we Kid?”

“Really what do you call that’ my Dad will be looking for you three” nodding his head while biting at his lower lip wanting more to get into a scuffing mach with him

“We didn’t do anything, scared the piss out of the kid that’s all” holding his rifle down checking back to see were the other two were on the pathway, not seeing them turning back

“Right just scared the crap out of us with your guns” Mat jump right in telling him off getting the same tone as Mike just what we didn’t need at this time a fight.

“You better just forget we were here or will be back again’ You Hear me all of you” Pointing his rifle up towards Mike and Mat stopping them from moving any closer towards him

“Your friends are leaving shouldn’t you be going too?” Mike said outward thru his teeth

“Ok you win and you better not say anything about us got it” turning starting to walk away

“Fine’ you were never here” Mike quickly said with his hands behind him making a fist.

Watching Mark rushing to the pathway to find his friends still holding Jeff close at least he stopped shaking so much, Mat rush over to the ship with Mike while Jeff and I sat down looking around the fire pit, Faye went around the ship before coming back looking inside at them Mat stood at the doorway with his thumb upward, jumping out rushing to the pathway looking down making sure they weren’t just lingering about in the trees, Jeff started crying moving over closer to me, holding him to me telling him we were find and everything was ok we didn’t get hurt or shot did we, he just shook his head back and forth crying gasping and started shaking again like a leaf in the wind, Faye came running back holding a Tee shirt outward along with a warm soda, Jeff looked up taking the shirt putting it on almost hitting me with his arm, Faye stood holding the soda till he was done, Not wanting it, So Faye handed it to me sitting down with us waiting on Mike and Mat to return.

“Can we be out of here soon” Jeff asking pulling the shirt over his head.

“Maybe soon will be taking off” Handing him the soda watching him slowly drinking it

Sitting thinking about what could have happen would only make matters worse what we needed to do was find out what was going on with the ship why it crashed and what could we have over looked it has to be something small something we missed but what we looked over everything inside and under it what could it be, Mike and mat came over drinking sodas grinning like they won the big battle of the earth.

“They didn’t get our money one box more they would have”

“We need to get out of here Mike” looking up at him holding his box of money

 “Will be ok they left they won’t be coming back here” Mike standing finishing off the bottle

“It’s three with guns Mike not Aliens we got to find what’s going on with the ship we can’t stay here, creeps with guns and who knows what else is around these woods” getting bad and upset they could all see it in me now even Faye just stood looking back and forth

 “Aliens you’ what happen?” Jeff asking looking up puzzled

“It’s a long story’ how you think we got this ship”

“You kill them” wide eyes rising getting excided

“No they got away in other ships”

“Wow’ How many were there, so how’d you get the ship then?”

“Only a few and they left the ship so we took it”

Jeff sat back smiling for once this amused him fighting Aliens and taking their ship, Faye dropped her empty soda near the pit looking to the ground. “Won’t they come looking for it”

“You are Human right you’re not aliens” Mat stood back looking at all of us

“Huh?” Looking back at him more confused to his thinking we were the Aliens now

 “So you are not Aliens from another world?” Jeff sparked right up smiling

“What the hell are you two babbling about do we look like Aliens?’

“Yes and we have paranormal powers to defeat the enemies” Mike busted out with grinning ear to ear holding his box outward like it would float in the air waiting for it to hover

“What’s Para-n-rom ?”

“It Electro Magnetic Force field of Positive to Negative fields in a world of space and time as we are here in this time and space in the Paranormal world” Mike babbled off like some scientist

“Huh” Mat and Jeff said at the same time looking at him lowering the box

“What the hell Mike stop it come back to earth here and let find how to get out of here without Aliens or Guns ok, now what could be missing that we overlooked something small or out of the ordinary, it has to be something think put your powers to that will you and get us home”

Mike didn’t say anything just turn walking to the ship Faye followed him, Mat sat down and we just waited for the raccoons slowly coming from the tree lines seeing what was going on.

Update on Yellowjacket The Boys

July 19, 2013

In regards to Yellowjacket July

Hello Reader’s of Yellowjacket;  I’ve been a little busy lately with going over the book as it was waiting and waiting for the latest review news, with more rejections than I had hoped for to become a book. Well I’ve learn a lot about books and what publishers want and it sure wasn’t  This Fictional story about a bunch of kids lost in time or flying around in a space ship! The story was ok they said but not what they were looking for too much drama, and way too many characters involved, what is my story without having characters involved in aspects trying to hold together as a group doing whatever they can to find a way back home. The Element’s along the way took them to a farm and towns with more things that happen on each account trying not to stand out or draw attrition to them self’s. Mike and Shawn were not ones to just step aside and leave the others behind, everything that happens to each of them could have setbacks they were well aware of the outcome only they had to do what was best for all, The hardest part for Shawn was leaving a few of them on the farm, Shawn know it was best and what had to be done after leaving in the broken ship one more time hoping to get home finding them self over tired and landing for rest, Taking a trip into the local town to find two street boys without a home living in cardboard boxes in an ally way, they join them back to the ship and things happen they had to leave in a hurry in daylight, only ending up in another time and place falling from the sky into an open campsite closed without any way of knowing what happen to the ship or how to fix it, stuck in time till they found away to return home.

This is the story and will be the story! I’ve return to it and working more on the plot as an adventure in this second part., view’s were down even thou received many good feed backs and likes it’s just the numbers made me depressed’ so I stopped looking at them, working on the Second part. Writing what’s on my mind and how feel in the story, Reviews of my spelling grammar and slang and whatever else they could come up with to put it down.. Well that’s just all part of it good or bad my main point is the story not the grammar. If you like it fine, Time is not on my side here so I hope to get the boys back within a few chapters here, I’ll post the new chapters before the end of July and August. Then will see what happens.  A Special Thank You to all the readers that have enjoyed it before and hope you like the new chapters as well. First Part went to a Self Publishing company as I could no longer wait just wanting to see it in print. Will.

Who are you’ Dennis, pt2

April 7, 2013

Back fields as far as the eye could see, we all run around ducking in the tall grass till someone spotted us hiding we were being just country kids, sometimes all of us kids running around so much ending up at the end of the road, this was almost two miles from the house, making more a game to see who could run the fastest back to the house without fallen, most of us younger kids took our time getting back and always the older kids were standing by the wagon wheel at the end of the driveway waiting, after we rested heading for the tomato’s we could only pick the red ones no pink or green they had to wait a few more days, holding them in our shirts eating a few till we got home placing them in the straw basket, we had a dug out in the ground that stored a lot of vegetables that was one place you would never find me in that was more the older boys job to get what they needed.

We stayed with them for awhile till we moved into a small mobile home park, not many jobs around so we ended up moving again this time back to the north, finding a nice house apartment near the beach, living on the first floor wasn’t too bad, Our new dad found a job right off working in a gas station, things must have worked out good for him as he soon had his own station in town, going to school was to bad only walking one mile mostly up hill, now that hill was always fun riding in my wagon holding on all the way down feeling every bump in the road, staying in the center didn’t seem to bother me as long as I keep the handle straight , only one time it crashed into a car sending me flying, Mom came running out of the house checking over making sure I was ok, When dad got home he also asked not if I was ok if I broke the wagon, it was bent some but he took it to work and fixed it for me he wasn’t mad just concern.

Being just a small boy having only one big problem that was school in the first grade elementary class, not understanding what they wanted to teach after lunch at our desks and more talking, wanting more to go play outside at recess heading right for the monkey bars with the other boys, most of the girls went for the swings, all kinds of other things to dodge ball and sometime a group of us boys would shot marbles, everyone went back inside sitting at our desks sitting holding our hands on top of the desk while the teacher talked, back then we didn’t have classrooms to go back and forth to just one class room one teacher all day long and she mostly smelled like powder or some overwhelming perfume, teachers were females back then except the principal, why I seemed to be sent to him was unclear maybe tapping on my desk to much anyways sitting in that chair across from his desk looking down at you, he was tapping his pencil so why couldn’t I do it in class most of the time he just send me back to class telling me to stop tapping so much.

The following Year the same teacher all over again, us boys had our way of making the class start giggling before she turnaround from the blackboard, holding her ruler smacking it on her hand looking at all of us boys, mine you not the girls no not them they were young ladies, a little spit ball in their hair fix them good before we got caught, down to the principal office we go now in groups of five or six, having us sit and miss or recess, sometimes he would take our marbles till after school. Dad sometimes would take me to work with him, letting me play in the cars behind the garage, having lunch with the men giving me things to do staying out of there way for the most part, but I like asking why a lot till Dad would take me in the office letting me color in my books, till Mom pick me up taking me home.

Sometimes we go to the local flea market looking around sometimes they buy me something to play with at home a truck or baseball they even got me a war tank once, family would go out for sea food at one spot across town on the beach, eating hot dogs and fried clams, afterwards going swimming in the ocean, playing in the sand making sand castles getting all sandy having to run back in the water to get the sand off, with the sun heating the salt on our body’s making us get nice and red, getting changed on the beach before we got in the car making sure we didn’t have any sand on us, later mom would give us a bath putting lotion on the sun burns making it feel better, School was out for the summer, that was one time I should have stayed by the house, nothing was interesting so heading up to elementary school, along the backside it had theses huge rocks to climb on, little did I know it was the older kids rock, they grabbed me holding me down saying kids die on this rock they cut their hearts out and feed them to the rocks, talk about being a scared seven year old, after letting me go running home never returning to those rocks staying near the house.

We went on a vacation to visit my cousins in Ohio, it was like old times getting the water from the creek and playing in the fields, staying for a whole week before coming back home, soon after something happen at the station dad lost it having the property sold that the station was on, next thing I knew we were moving again this time without dad, Mom loaded up the car and moved back to New York with our Father maybe this will work out maybe not, enrolled in school only two blocks away that was better than walking up the hill every day, after school playing on the sidewalk or in the back yard wasn’t so bad it had only one tree too small to climb on, but plenty of sand to play in, out front was a busy road cars all the time back and forth sitting on the steps watching the different types going by counting the cars with chrome wheels, sometimes they let me walk up around the corner and get the Newspaper on Sunday.

As a youngster you didn’t ask a lot of question what was going on around you between Mom and Dad, all I knew was mom drove a car home pulling out the back seat leaving it on the sidewalk placing all our belonging inside it, having to crawl across the boxes to the back window as we drove away, waking up it was dark inside the car, Mom and my sister sleeping in the front seat; looking out seeing only a street light over us in some rest stop along the highway.

Dennis is a lost young boy having his world changing every time he turns around, now in another state waking up inside their car looking out in the middle of the night. Thank you blogger’s for following upon Dennis story part two. Will

Who are you’ what happen Dennis

April 2, 2013

Looking back one can only wonder who we were in the past growing up in a world of today, sometimes we have to stop and wonder if things could have been different, what if sometimes seems to always run into the big question what could have been, our dreams as a child of what we wanted to become as we got older it was our dream of things to come in our life’s, somewhere along the line these plans changed for Dennis.

 Life been just one of those times when it wasn’t even my life, School was always hard getting along with other kids around not able to understand the school work for that matter like reading was my worst subject more flipping thru the pages, always finding some reason not to read out loud with the other kids, sure in time reading more comic books seeing more what the words intended making it clear, the teachers would know just placing you in the rear seats away from the smart kids, bad grades on report cards only getting past along to the next grade, this thing of holding back a child in the late sixties was just unheard of pass the kid or you’ll get him next year, Math was my worst subject no way could I possibly understanding anything about those times tables even to this day, learning to count was done at home counting pennies during card games mostly learning poker’ Annie up who wins the pot, betting came easy sometimes it help in school calling a two a duce, or three a tray even if the math teachers did not like that at all.

Summer was a time you got out with your friends and play in the local park down the street, if you had a bike then you could go riding around with your friends seeing who could ride the fastest, we didn’t do all kinds of tricks on our bikes only thing we did was maybe cut off old bike forks to extend them outward like chopper motorcycles, a few kids even placed steering wheel on them, I stuck to the banana seat with high back chrome rails to rest on when you stopped with your friends talking and most important the tall handle bars tilled back, after all this time forgetting the name only it was a purple ten speed with white trim on the side, Sports cards making motor sounds were more for the little kids. Every kid on the block knew when dinner was rushing home it was time for Have Gun will Travel or the Real McCoy’s, Daniel Boone was on every afternoon around four but you could always find a great western Movie those days.

In the formative years of the sixties things happen around us everyone dancing wearing strange color clothes and always someone saying Peace man, Peace, Make Love not War, in the store’s handing out flowers to you as you walk your cart outside, one guy was all deck out in bright purple outfit even his hat match slow walking swaying side to side, about the only true hippie they called them without a full beard, Cut jeans and tie around blouses was quite the look for the woman, most of the guys still had long jeans with ripped knees patches sew on the front and back, a bit different back then compared to today’s generation , we didn’t dress like them till later in the early Seventies even then it wasn’t so much as maybe an army jacket and bell bottom jeans, only as the polyester came in with the disco everyone was cool learning moves having a grand time it was the thing to do just being yourself dancing with the music feeling it inside drifting you away, of course some had other ways of making them sway a little more to smoking wild weed, even that was ok but not allowed in our house nor did we want to try it knowing what would happen if our mother found out we even been around anybody smoking it.

Looking back into this childhood still remember the night it happen on Christmas eve nineteen sixty, laying on the couch watching the television tying not to fall asleep while Mom was wrapping presents, being woken by a crash opening my eyes Mom grabbing me and my sister rushing us out the door down stairs from our second floor apartment, stopping to get in the car turning looking over seeing my new tricycle laying on the sidewalk with broken glass all around it. Waking up in a strange place sitting up on the couch looking around Mom was sitting at the table with a man she knew as things happen we stayed with him moving to Ohio, Staying with Mom’s sister and her whole family living in the lower part of a house yet to be build, everyone of us kids had chores to do no matter the age, sometimes they let me help bring the water can over the hill to a creek filling it, not to many folks around here complaining about kids running around bare foot getting dirty digging up potatoes in the field for dinner, everyone line up before dinner at the table getting washed head to toe from the wash bucket, most of us kids had to stand on a chair with just underwear on but we didn’t mine getting into clean night clothes’ besides the wood stove made plenty of heat, that was the older boys job keeping the stove full of wood.

Sometimes we could watch the television that was only on the weekends if a good scary horror movie was on, during the weekdays before the sun even came up we rush down the driveway to get the school bus coming up our rutted dirt road, taken all us kids to school with the other kids he pickup on some other part around the hill.

Dennis is just another person that has cross a path, following his evens between everything else I’ve been doing with my main story’s; now finding time to let Dennis get his say in finding this one more little story needing a posting for my bloggers’ Thank you blogger’s following upon Dennis story in a few short parts. Will

Look forward to the edit no matter how hard it is

March 25, 2013

There always something we missed along the way, this was a good time to change it Thanks everyone who’s been following the group along its journey on Yellow Jac wordpress, Experts from one chapter that was redone for book hope you like it.
Everyone looked out the window, her head popped upward seeing all of us now we were spotted for sure, She stood looking at us with a big smile waving her hand, the older man quickly stopping her looking talking but we weren’t able to hear them over the car running; Everyone moved back from the window all smiling that she seen them, not me or Mike we knew we had to get out of here as fast as we could.
“Everybody get ready we got to leave as soon as they drive off” Mike wiping his lips off glancing down pointing to Josh, Quickly looking down at him he had fallen asleep sitting next to me, watching the car leave the driveway trying not to looked bending down, knowing how weak he was picking him up taking him over laying him on the hay bales, everyone started getting the rest of our things together ready, Brian walked over standing next to me with Chris looking at Josh.
“He going to be ok”
“He’s still weak Brian, he needs to rest”
“I’ll set up a blanket inside for him”
“Ok thanks’ I’ll bring him over as soon as you ready is everything inside”
“Just waiting on Mike”
“What’s he doing?”
“Still over by the door looking out”
“I’ll get Mike after I get him in”
“What about the tarp should we take it?”
“We better just in case we need it later”
Brain and Chris went over to the ship, Lisa ringing out the wet clothes setting them inside, Brain waved over for Josh, Looking down he was just sitting looking thru the crack outward, Carefully picking Josh up taking him inside, Brian laid out a blanket just behind my seat.
Everyone moved out of our way with Brian helping getting him down easy, checking Josh warm so that was a good sign as long as he wasn’t sweating a river, Stepping out Faye holding up a warm soda reaching down for it, all of them looking up at me waiting on the hay bales, the only sound around the whole place was birds chirping, watching them drinking keeping more to themselves, knowing Mike like I do something was up it must be bothering him keeping away from everyone.
“You going to fold up the tarp just leave it by the side for now ok”
“Ok Shawn’ we leaving before it gets dark”
“We might have to’ just everybody be ready”
“I don’t understand why we should leave if they know were here”
“Lisa we don’t know them, what about the ship”
“We could say it was here already”
“Please just stop” Walking away from her before I said something I shouldn’t heading down watching Mike chewing on the dirty hay again.
“Mike’ whatever it is you better come out of it”
Looking up pulling the straw out , lowering his head looking at them sitting looking back. “They knew our names’ How Shawn who are they”
“I don’t know Mike who they are, only we have to get back”
“That’s it how do we know it will take us home?”
“We have to try Mike”
“The kid has to know how to get us back”
“True he knows something about the ship”
“Don’t let him fool you’ He know more about it”
“You’re right ok’ but he’s too ill to tell us much”
“You’re the one he’s taking too”
“What do I say to him?”
“Shawn if you have to beat it out of him till he tells us how to work it”
“Beat him Mike he’s just a boy, come on think what you’re saying”
“Alright am sorry’ Just make like you were talking to your brother”
“Sure that’s like asking a wall for information”
“You’re the one that can reach inside that kid brain”
“Ok’ so we find out and then what?”
“Will just take them all back with us”
“How are we going to explain them?”
“I don’t know how’ and I don’t care how’ we just need to get home”
“Ok Mike’ relax your biting that lip too much its bleeding again”
“I can’t help it I’m scared ok”
“Ok Mike so am I’ but we have to be strong here for the others”
“What about us’ you’re scared too”
“I ‘am Ok’ we have to hold it together for everyone sake”
“Ok but we can’t leave right now”
“Why not Mike?”
“We just can’t I don’t know why something’s telling me we have to stay”
“I don’t understand what is it now”
“I don’t know what it is it’s something deep down telling me”
“Like a feeling it will blow up or something”
“No Shawn it’s just not time I can’t explain it just wait a while longer”
“Ok I’ll tell the other we have to stay, only till dark Mike”
“Yea ok When its dark’ Hey how’s the kid doing”
“Sleeping he so weak again”
“The birds stopped quite” Mike said moving over looking out the crack in the door.
Sure enough they returned in the Black car pulling in the driveway, around the bales rushing up by the door looking out at them pointing keeping them low.
“Mike’ it’s them again, any ideas now what to do?”
“No we have to stay’ ok”
“Ok will you try and relax before you end up like Josh”
Turning back watching them going back to the house with the older lady trying to look towards us every so often walking to the door before going inside together, Brian and Lisa moved over near us kneeling low next to Mike, Mike looked back at them getting right up heading to the ship without saying anything to them, Brian look over at me just as Chris holding onto Faye came over
“We leaving or what’ Shawn” Brain asked confused
“Tonight when its dark as it stands right now that’s all I can tell you”
“As soon as it’s dark that might be too late”
“Hey you two look the lady’s coming out” Lisa interrupted us
“Now what?”
“She’s heading right for us”
“Great’ everyone get to the ship, Brian tell Mike”
“Mike’ Mike’ We got to leave now” Faye Saying outwardly rushing up with Chris
“Shawn how” Brain asking rushing away
“If she tries to come in were going right thru the doors”
”Holy shit we’re leaving’ hurry everyone were crashing thru the doors”
Not even watching for her just getting back to the ship, Mike jumping out watching everyone hearing Brian “What happen” Pointing to get in “Where going now get in” Brian already sitting , Jumping over Josh plopping in my seat, Mike taking the center waving the lights dust started flying from the bottom.
“Look she’s at the side door watching us” Lisa said standing at the door trying to get it to close.
Seeing out our front screen turning colors watching her at the side door trying the knob, it was still braced under the knob we had a chance of getting out again seeing her head to the glass looking right at us trying to wave, knocking on the door really hard sending the shivers up my spine just frozen looking at the door seeing her at the glass, already starting to sweat felling the dampness under my arms with each knock on the door “what’s taken so long for this thing to move”, “It’s not lighting up here just flickering” Wake him up hurry up” turning back shaking Josh back and forth Chris and Faye staying near the rear scared, Josh wasn’t waking.
Climbing over the seat tugging on him, Mike pointing for Lisa to get in the seat, lifting Josh upward looking at his eyes, he was out like a light “He’s out of it”
“Did he die”
“No he not dead Mike he passed out”
“Push that peddle down harder it’s moving”
“The door’s still open”
“Will get it later, get that boy up Shawn”
Brian reach over grabbing my arm looking upward then looking back before I could see the door spotting the older guy Blair walking right to the door, Mike stomping on the peddles trying to fire it up unable to only getting a load humming sound from the bottom.
“Brian’ Please open the door! … Brian’ don’t go please wait”
Turning looking right at Brian my hair razing she’s calling Brian just frozen, looking out the screen window at the door, feeling something grabbing me looking back it was Josh reaching around my neck blinking his eyes. “He’s awake”
“Make it move Josh hurry” Mike hollering back “Dam this thing it’s not moving come-on Josh help us” Mike all nerviest banging on the consoled, Brian lowered his head at the consoled back and forth “It’s no use Mike” “Why won’t it go why” Banging his hands again, Josh crying holding me, Lisa getting out of the chair the ship just stopping dead, Brain scooted to the door looking out with Lisa stepping down staring at the side door, unable to stopping them looking up to Mike laying his head down on the consoled starting to cry, we we’re done for found out for sure now, what could happen next I didn’t even want to know leaning into Josh.
“Brian’ Brian please wait” the lady said wiping the window hearing the crack in her voice, Brian stood looking at her Chris rush over to him standing with Lisa watching the door, Faye came over to us leaning over upset just holding us all together, Glancing up seeing our screen turning back, over at the door Brian walking towards it, moving away from them just as I got the doorway “Brain no” He looked back just holding the board. Mike heard me getting up rushing over with Faye bringing Josh to the doorway.
“Kid’s Please we know you’re here’ please open the door” Doc said with a throbbing voice knocking again on the door holding her next to him.
“Brian it’s me May” She said sadly between her tears, holding her hanky.
“We got to let them in” Brian said stepping closer to Chris.
“Brian who are they?” Mike said jumping right out rushing over to him already turning the lever, Mike stopping him just in time before unlocking it, looking right at the window seeing both of them watching.
“Brian you win unlock it then, you just killed all of us”
Turning the knob Brian open the door Chris right by his side looking at the two standing just staring at them, she was all teary eye as her face lit up smiling at them, wiping the tears reaching out for him hugging him now, while the Doc stood watching them a few seconds before looking over at us three looking from the ship.
“It’s ok your alright no one’s gon’na harm you” Doc said slowly walking over towards us, Brian still with her and Lisa, Mike moved away from them getting by us standing in front of the ships door watching them, Josh holding my leg with Faye holding him stepping away from the ship almost tripping over the tarp watching him walking over mostly looking down at Josh. “Which one of you is Jose?”
Mike step out in front of Josh hiding him “There’s no Jose here Mister”
Doc stopped looking right at Mike, turning looking back at the May and Brian, all of us also looked up at them her head snapped right upward looking at all of us “No he’s here Doc’ they’re all here I see them all of them even” she stopped and started crying again.
“One of you has got to be Jose, who’s been hurt!” Doc in a frim voice directed right at Mike, trying to see around him
“That’s Josh! Behind everyone” Brian said outward pointing over at us; Mike holding him from behind, Josh held my leg tighter trying to hide his arm, Faye moved inward more shielding him, Hearing him staring to cry with all of us tightly around him keeping him safe as we could together.
”Why Josh?” Mike asking moving his head sideways looking back down at him
“The Boy Jose I want it’s his arm its badly infected”
“No he’s fine we fix it already” Mike holding onto Josh’s side starting to shake standing looking at him, hearing Josh crying Faye quickly moved behind be taking Josh more holding him, I looked back seeing them two, tapping Mike.
“Son just relax here,’ I’m Doctor Blair and Your name is”
“Mike… Marcus”
“Ok Mike’ you seem to be the one in charge I’m a Doctor”
“Doctor’ How did you know we were here?”
“It’s a long story Mike”
Thanks’ everyone for following along it’s been a ride working on second chapters doing what possible with the weather, keeping me busy also hurry up spring we all had plenty of this winter already Will.

For if only a Printed Book

February 28, 2013

For if only a Printed Book

 Book company’s out there’ your loss is my gain in the long run’ here I thought writing a story just might be good’ oh how wrong I was to think it was the next big thing, we’ll try and get a teenager to sit down and read from a book these days forget it, Don’t get me wrong here some kids like books if they find one like Harry potter or now the hunger games out on the shelf look again where is that book today sitting on some shelf collecting dust, as soon as the movie comes out these books our case aside. The old days of reading have somehow gone by the wayside today every teenager is just too involved in computer games or handheld games.

 Writing a story takes hard work the teller gets into everything they put down on paper or like most of us now typing on our computers for the next big thing to be on the shelf for our readers, Last week I stood in the grocery store watching three young kids checking out the book rack, what do you think they were looking at Novel’s you would hope, no magazine after magazine thumbing pages placing them back on the shelf before their parent came looking for them, One young girl was looking at the paperback covers on the high shelf’s Love and Romance getting all excited trying to check a few out replacing it just as fast, while the Boys seemed to be checking on the middle shelf for more the adventure type of mythical battles again in paperbacks.

 Novel in hand checking out the contents while scanning the long shelf of all type of books, gee four rows of all kinds of books carefully line up on the shelf one behind the other almost twelve feet long to choose from adults on the top, next three mixed adventure stories hardback and paperback of all sizes and shapes, not just one size so they look good stacked together like we use to have in the old living room, checking it out more finding, Just published on the end cap by your favorite authors placed side by side most without a space between them in hardback reduced in price or twenty-five percent off hoping you’ll take it.

 What was I thinking when I was writing that book; someday it would be on this shelf with every great Author out there, even today ending still keep up looking over the authors names just imagination my book sitting on the shelf along with the best sellers group, There it is my cover along the other great covers standing out just waiting for that one person to reach up and take a look inside, that not happening of course walking away and what happens they start haunting me from every aisle checking each box or package I’ve pick up wondering what would they do in a grocery store, wanting to get home with this thought in mine ready to start typing away on my computer.

 Enthusiastic sure I just had to get into it forgetting how much time it took just type away sometimes losing all time into the early hours, Thinking was it the writing or maybe just something to do, like I had so much I could have been doing everything put on the back burner it can wait till later, no matter what it just seemed better the next day to get something done just had to get my story down while it was fresh everything else can just take a back seat, day after day night after night getting it just right everything followed along every part just fell into place it was ready to put it out in the world, sending it off to a few with all the glory of getting the big great job!, till receiving each back having only to look at what they said the big Sorry not interested, or Scrap it! What a put down what a waste of time.

 Dream that’s shattered before it even got to print, wasted my time no if anything I’ve learn what to say and more how to write it better over the past few years, but it was electrifying to sit typing away each adventure becoming realistic, ok so they didn’t like that’s not going to stop me from writing again or Publishing it myself after three months of editing it getting just right for print, Thankfully so many have read it over the past few years and watch the story grow here on WordPress.com and twitter, After thinking hard what to do beside looking forward to it on the store shelves it was sent out to be published on fifty books ordered, I can only thank the readers for wanting it that made this possible their copies will be sent as soon as there ready again don’t let anyone tell you it’s Not for them it’s your dream make it happen.                      ‘Thank You’ All that have stayed with me over the years Will.

Yellow jacket Novel lost it

February 13, 2013

Yellow Jacket Novel lost it

 Blogger’s it’s been a Ruff Ride the past few months here, working on my Manuscript Fiction book as requested by a few company’s out there after all the work editing to what they wanted only to reach back and say no to so many changes in my story, even the name saying itb was at the bottom of some list, We change the name and did everything they wanted! This big cut just wasn’t what I had in mind, they took my story and lost the whole thing changing everything to what they thought was best for it, then wanting more cuts to many words for printing.

 Back tracking the last chapters reducing it and making each chapter longer as needed for printing better pages, leaving ending chapter taken out for another book sometime, well they agreed with that saying maybe we can do something later’ after getting the book cover ready and ok after a few edits here and there before we agreed on one, then came the print edit of the story smaller print and of course  they didn’t like the spelling of a young kid talking’ no one would understand this language, wanting to put it just as he the character would be saying it at his age and education of living on the street, sure it’s not English just plain and simple street talk what’s wrong with that’ so I was wrong they told me! Who are you people anyway, they told me to cool off a few and will talk later, right told them to forget about it.

 Stuck was able to work with the other company that did like it only to find out they wanted more than just all rights to the story! wanting me to stop on line also telling it and remove it. Forget that this is what drove me to writing again I like it here on WordPress and intended to stay here and keep the story going. So much for them and all the big dreams of a book deal, but I was able to contact yet another company that will do my book at cost, so what at least I’ll have my book made after all that work and time edit and set up the way I want it not the way others thought it should be.

 Why do they have to change everything to what would sell, sure everyone wants to become the next big Novels Story teller out there, but I just want to be able to do it on my own time and enjoy the story as I write it feeling like I’m part of a story and feeling everything in the story sad or happy, it’s what keeps me going along the way of my characters lives as they do become part of you in everyday life, so bloggers it was in my best interest to go the other way making me happy ordering my book’s was the best way I felt at this time the cost was high but the feeling of soon seeing it in print will be well worth the trouble, thank you all for still hanging in with me during this little set back I look forward to writing again Thank you all Will.

Between me you and God 10 Last

September 18, 2012

Between Me You and God 10

BMYG  Part Ten.

Today is been just another day at the beach for me and Lucky, watching the waves come in shore, it’s so peaceful here late at night no one around just the sound of the waves, what a lonesome sound with the moon casing off the waves, Went thru the six pack now back home seeing someone called, Becky checking on us again every other day she calling making sure I still pick up the phone now and then, Becky came by about two mounts ago and found me sleeping on the floor must have scared her she didn’t even try to wake me just called for help, she was relived I was ok more scared that I went without saying goodbye.

It’s been a ride for me for sure the big wave is coming in soon, time has its limited now dam liver problems,  my own fault too much drinking, it happens old friend yea we got old somehow, Guess you made it this far in the tapes or maybe you just grabbed the last one, I said a lot of things that maybe should have brought out long ago, hey you live with things and try to put them behind you and move on with your life, Well my friend I truly wanted to thank you for being my friend over the years, You may not know your letters over the years I’ve cherished wondering how you could just get up and travel around without a care, Did you know how much you made me dream of all those place’s, Post cards and photo’s what a adventure you had.

Keeping myself busy also married once and three kids, that was a long time ago we don’t talk and last time I even seen the kids the oldest was five, some other guy raised them with his name  and never heard from them, that’s been some twenty some years, not even a card or Christmas card from them guess I was written off, hey anytime I wanted company working at the shack was never a dull night, that brings me back to when we were young growing up around Cody before his work became involved then he found the love of his life moving away, do you still remember him the hippie sixties dude we called him, Some weekends he took you and me to Friendly’s for burgers mostly just an Ice Cream, what a chap escape he was now that I think of it a few times we went to the arcade, and you yes you were the one that got me on that roller coaster, holy crap was I scared but you took control just held me till it stopped, you sat wiping the tears away telling me we were down almost having to pry me from the seat, but I got even then again I had to force you into surfing the waves come on you got to admit the only waves we got where from the ships, just think if we were in that big state California you always talked about, hey I still got that old Ron Jon’s shirt you sent me.

It’s morning here bright sunny day the kids will be flocking in the arcade, never thought as kids I’d be working here during the summer, it’s my job to keep them games running, helping out in other activities of the environment protection, beach volleyball or even taking youth groups on fishing trips, of course a lot of kids have skateboards no matter how many times you tell them they still want to try the new stuff, besides becoming an EMT came in handy, Lifeguard during the busy weekends, you could always pickup plenty of girls being a lifeguard.

As much as I’d like to rattle on tape is running out so let me get right to it and again wish we had more time together, thanks for coming by it meant a great deal to me. This is my last tape so let me get down to what I wanted to tell you before it runs out; Going back before we moved here from what I’ve told you I do hope you now understand some of what happen to me as a child, still sometimes feeling the hurt knowing it wasn’t my fault it happen why things happen when you’re a small boy or even a girl that sometimes we don’t understand till later in life, no one said anything back in the sixties about bad men or women, today it’s all over and every kid now knows about them from their parents or schools, what to look out for not to ride in cars don’t talk to strangers, the fear is always with you no matter how old you get I don’t care what they say it’s like a haunting memory, more and more wondering if we moved because what happen in our town, Cody coming to live with us when he did, Mom said he needed a place to stay for awhile, I don’t remember him working back then either strange thing, comes to mind he went to the church a few times sure only when I went not my sister’s, when we lost our first Lucky he was the one that found another one just like her, do you know that I’ve had four Lucky’s now, hope this one sticks around a little longer with me, this one like beer half for her and half for me, so if a kid gets hurt by one of these persons what happen to them, all the talk today they become just like the person that betrayed them as a kid! That’s so wrong it only makes you more aware of what goes on in the minds of people.

Twelve going on Thirteen the man years of adolescence talking about girls didn’t bother me at all, hell going to the beach you could always see more young girls in bikinis most reviling thin print pattern less than Panties or bra’s letting your mind wonder, watching them run around how could you help not laying belly down in the sand afraid to turn over, how many times did both of us stay on the beach watching them play ball, even today the boys still do it. joining them a few times till nature called, even in gym class we had shorts most of the time not wearing our shirts and how they would tease us, the only time I even felt it again was at thirteen from a gym teacher trying to help me up a rope placing his hand on my rear, he didn’t mean anything by it, but I still had that fear even at thirteen, again that vulnerability that I felt was more a fear of what could happen again, perpetrators of the abuse come in many forms sometimes we fall into individuals that don’t care about the outcome only what they want and how they get it.

Parents conveniently let kids go thinking everything’s fine they know them’ it’s not like they were strangers. Mothers care for Cuts with Band-Aids they hurt when you hurt, try to confide your fears and worries making them easy to live with, having no father it was hard you just can’t go to Mom and tell her what going on sometimes you need a male image that you could confide your worst fears and worries to more a role model you could follow hoping to become like them, understanding why you feel the way you do, Mom never like my boyish paraphernalia of girls hanging on the wall, a few did had to go Mom telling me they exposed to much really Mom they had swim suits’ they were taken down but not thrown away, Cody even had a few magazines around he knew we looked at them but never asked what we thought about, more just telling us to make sure we put them back out of sight., getting back to what I was saying before retelling this is not an attempt to bring up bad times as a victim more ensuring that justice was done, more how do we prevent this abuse in the future, the media and publicity are all victims by attracting too much publicity not having any heart for the victims at all more heartless for a story in print, if they go to court to testify that could be devastating to any young person boy or girl, making spectacles of the accused person forgetting the child, who’s eyes fill with tears reliving the event over and over the fear and disgust they had to go thru, who failed to protect them when they needed someone to love and respect them as a child not a trophy for someone.

Life goes on closure in what they call criminal court cases takes a long time dragging on sometimes for a decade or more, mostly the accused will die before any justice is done leaving the victim to repeat their statement over and over, some try to drop the whole thing getting on with life like I did and so many more had to, who would believe a ten year old going to court back in the day or even today our society is deaf to the pleas for far too long more taking a back seat to it these kids are never taken seriously they don’t believe it more than not they just allowed us to tell our story of the horrible things which happen to us, without any recognition or judgment about our plight. They have turned a blind eye to the victims. Some day they will understand the child and what he or she has to deal with all thru life, having no control as a child, thankfully I never said anything before what a mess my life would have been I’m just thankful Mom was there to see things as they were not asking, just there if I needed her she must have known but never let on just more aware of what we did and were we went.

Thank you friend for just being my friend in life  Joe.

Joe sorry we couldn’t talk about this beforehand I understand can understand you, it’s a hard thing to deal with for any child at any age, you did what you felt was right and maybe Cody help in so many ways you just over looked he was there for you during the peak years you needed someone to talk to just being yourself, life is so precious we should never let it go to waste.

Readers this was Joe’s last tape before he left us hope you read some of it, it wasn’t easy listening to his voice breaking so many times before he finished telling his life past granted Becky and Trisha have also read them before I let any go to print here,, Thank you both for allowing me the chance to share Joe’s story.

Sent your comments if you like Thanks’ for reading it Will
