Had breakfast with Nick this cool, sunny morning. We sat in a booth in a family dinner joint/bar across the street from the West Richland Post office. Last time we talked, Nick tole me that Tami asks me to ‘drop the charges.’ I told him I would not ( I had done that once before [see broken toe]) but would talk to the prosecuting attorney, which I did. I related to Nick over eggs and hash browns,
“I told her that I was moving to New Mexico, and that the only person Tami is at risk of harming is me, so ‘protection of society’ is really not an issue in her case. The PA (Meg Whitmire) told me that she has no intention of sending Tami to jail for punitive reasons. She just wants what is best for Tami.” We had a pleasant time together.
Tami is crazy as a loon but she seems to be busy and perhaps happy. Often she is, when left alone in her condo with her cats and her plants. She is riding her bike a lot, Nick said. “That bike you got her really has been a god-send.” Good for Tami! I hope she can focus on being happy just living her life quietly.
“Tami thinks that the dates of her previous court session have been changed,” Nick told me. There seems to be no change in her mental state. Now Nick is managing Tami like I used to do. It used to me my show! I offered to help but of course being Tami’s ‘man’ is a solo performance on the stage of life. I feel relieved to no longer be in that role. But I was concerned how she would take news of my leaving the state.
This evening Nick called. Tami took the news of the move well, and wishes me the best. She wants the climbing gear. This is a great request! Now I have to decide how serious I will be climbing in Abq, and I will leave the rest for her.
