Late last night I snuck in some Pizza and a Pepsi for Chris.

He was busy entertaining visiting hours were pretty much finito when it was my turn so we had a quick visit.

Chris was in a good mood and it was nice to see him getting some was Friday night afterall. Anyway we didn't get a chance to do much chinwagging.

I brought along some pictures to pin on his wall One of them was this shot that I took of my Lilly that morning before it fell over from the deluge.

Many of you may be unaware that Chris was a bit of a Flower buff and he constantly offered advice on how to manage my backyard...for years.

I also made a copy of the picture I snapped of the family members who attended a meeting this week...I realised that I forgot to show it to Chris.

There is stuff happening and preparations are being made to accomodate Chris's imminent exit from the institution...I'll have more on this in the near future. Right now everybody wants Chris to take advantage of his stay and (re)gain as many Lifeskills as possible before he leaves.

Chris of course is anxious to get out and who can blame him? Next week could bring some important developments on his journey "home".

Hopefully I will be able to report on some of the opportunities in the works that are designed to challenge Chris and prepare him for a more independent Life :)
Here he is thanking me for the contraband.

If you do have the opportunity please write or call Chris and/or plan a visit.

Good to hear that your release is gearing-up, Chris.
We're all looking forward to the day you feel able to push the mouse around. Ah-c'mon, it's just an itty-bitty rodent.No biggy!
Then, of course, you're only a click away from reading our drivel.
Eventually, you'll feel compelled to respond. We'll all be here.
Meanwhile, have a cyber hug.

I always knew there was something different about your relationship. lol

Seriously, great news. Will he be allowed visitors where he will be going or will we have to wait a while until he is settled in. Coming from Michigan, not that far, but still a drive. Let us know... it will be great to see him.

Give the big beautiful man some lovin' from me and well, a smooch if you dare...::wink::

I am loving you guys!

Soft love,
