RE: The one thing
What's something that nobody here knows about me...

About this time of year, 34 years ago, I had a four year old and an infant. My husband had left Iowa for Oklahoma to stay with a friend in hopes of finding work so that we could start a new life. There wasn't much opportunity where we were and our lifestyle needed to change for the sake of us and the kids.

Around 3:00 one morning there was loud banging on the metal part of the front storm door. We were living in what had been my grandparents' house on what was then the family owned farm. I opened the door and walked out on the steps to find two officers with their service revolvers drawn and pointed at my head. FUCK!

They had a warrant for my husband's arrest. Though I had told him not to sell coke to a guy who had been calling for months, he had. And of course the guy was a narc...just like I said. There were two more officers at the back door to prevent an escape. They searched the house for my husband and didn't find him, of course, he was several states away. But on their search they found a triple beam scale and therefore had probable cause to search everywhere.

They found some cut but couldn't prove that's what it was and they took a container I carried in my purse with prenatal vitamins and iron. They had nothing to charge me with.

One cop kept calling me Tina. He was really pissing me off. I finally told him once again that my name wasn't Tina and he said I could have been using an alias at the time of the transaction. I told him that my grandmother had been born in the house where we were standing and we were near a town of 3K people...did he really think I could get away with using and alias...dumb ass.

He called me Tina again and I wheeled around and informed him that if my husband was with a woman at the time they claimed the sale(s) were made and she wasn't extremely pregnant my husband was in a hell of a lot more trouble than just with the law. Another officer told the guy to back off.

Anyway...that was the night of the multiple, simultaneous drug bust. I came out unscathed...others weren't so fortunate.

The guy who spilled on everyone to get his sentence lessened killed himself about a year later.

Yeah...that's when I started my plans to join the army and get the fuck out of Dodge. About a year later the kids and I were in southern Arizona.

Goddamn...how I made it though the 70s and 80s...yeesh.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

There are quite a few people in my family who are recovering and I know it's not easy. Keep it up! You're doing great!

RE: The one thing
I'm a drunk and a junkie but I've been clean and sober since April 13, 1979. I am also bipolar and I eat lots of prescribed pharmaceuticals every day. They keep me from suicidal depression. I am crippled from childhood polio and from some head injuries caused by rank horses in my youth and in my old age. I wear adult diapers because I had prostate cancer -- stage 3 when they cut the damned thing out -- and I drip urine. My wife and I got married on August 16, 1969. Our son was born Jan. 13, 1979 and our grandson was born March 9, 2005. My wife, my son, and my grandson are my reason for living. There are two other things in my life that keep me going -- horses and rifles. I have been building rifles -- mostly wildcats -- since I was 16. I am 69 now. [A wildcat rifle is one where I take an existing cartridge and change the case shape to hold more or less gunpowder. I also neck it up or down to hold a larger or smaller bullet. Example: one of my favorites is a .30-06 case blown out to hold 12% more powder than the normal .30-06 and then I neck it down to take a 6.5 mm (.264 cal.) bullet. It's a wonderful 1,000 yard rifle. This stuff keeps me sane.]

I spent my career as a lawyer defending other lawyers who got into trouble. It was a very high stress practice. I started out as a criminal defense lawyer but for the last 18 years, my clients were almost exclusively lawyers and judges. Despite that it was high stress, I loved the courtroom and I still do.

The big secret: I was part of the ABA Task Force for the Guantanamo Detainees. I did not go to Gitmo to try any of the detainees but I consulted with the lawyers who did. We were told that the fucking government would get into our computers to make sure we weren't carrying any illegal messages from one terrorist to another, ala Lynne Stewart. I had a separate computer in my office dedicated to my Gitmo work and I told the women on my staff to have fun with that computer. When I wasn't using it, they downloaded some really hard core porn on it. A lawyer friend of mine in the DoD called me one day and asked if I knew what was on my computer? It cracked me up.

I have no idea whether or not I've said that on here before, but it's about the only thing coming to mind at the moment.

You are not alone.
