Someone asked how I like my room or apartment. I like it. I can have what I want in it. It's my own place, I can do what I want more or less. This is in my friend's parents house. He lives with his parents. So I suppose if I did anything bad, his parents would call my parents. I don't think my parents really understand why I want it. They think I have it just so I can have things that are not allowed in their house. But, that's not true. Yes, I have the computer, DVD, television, etc. that are not allowed in their house, but I can't explain it. I just need a place of my own for a while.
As my work building is at my parents house, I see them every day. I usually arrive for breakfast, then go to work. I also help my Father on the farm. Sometimes I leave before supper. Sometimes I stay for supper. On Sunday, I usually go to church with them - either meet them at church or the house.
I tell them that Thomas left the house, but they said he was married. When Thomas and Ruth get their new house, Edward will move in his Grandmother's house. I told them are letting him go - he's not married, but they say that is different. Anyway, that's parents.
I had to court because, they call them my natural parents, but I do not consider them my parents came up for parole at prison. Now that I am 18, the judge wanted a statement from me. I told them about what life had been with them. I guess the attorneys talked or something, but they did not get a parole. I guess court goes through this every so many years, even when they know they aren't going to let them out. I told the court Jean and David are my parents now.
As Marilyn said, I got my drivers license. I don't have a car yet. I asked her if I could drive her aound last Saturday. She asked my parents if it was all right and they said yes. I told her that my parents would have a fit if I had an accident or ticket. Marilyn said, never mind about your parents fit, worry about her fit if I get an accident or ticket - it's her car. I didn't get either.
I guess Marilyn wanted to go around where we live, but I wanted to see some of things she had on New York State of Mind. We went through the clock museum. Went to the one room school house, but it was closed, but I liked seeing the outside. I wanted to see the train crossing where she took all the train pictures, so we went there - but no train at the time we were there.
She made me take the back roads. I thought because she didn't think I was safe on the road, but she said she wanted some pictures. She let me take a picture of a barn, but it came out lousy, but she likes it. One place we pulled on a bridge and stopped. I asked if she was crazy. She said people seldom use this bridge. So she took pictures while the car was in the middle of the bridge. She was right, no one came until we were headed back. I think the pictures will go on this week or next. She called me her chauffeur for the day.
When it came to put the post on - everyone has a symbol at the top of the page. I took a picture of her car. I guess that's all I have to say.
Be With God,
