A Rainy Day in Georgia

We travelled up from Florida through the cotton fields and misty lakes of Alabama and on into Georgia and the rain soaked wasteland of Atlanta.  

Emily should have been at the Winn-Dixie on Beck and 23rd in Panama City at 10.00am but Sheila did not show nor was there any contact yet we drove over 800 miles to get there from Richmond, Virginia.

So far this week we have covered over 2,500 miles and by the time the trip is finished it will be over 3,000 but no Emily at the end of it.

I'm holed up in a motel in Georgia after meeting with Dave Thelen from the Committee for Missing Children last night; I'd spoken with him many times on the telephone over the years but this was the first opportunity to sit down with him and share that beer we had been promising each other for four years.

His grandchildren were staying at the house and his eldest grand-daughter and I played Wii bowling and true to form I showed absolutely no mercy; yes I know you're very cute but I have been well trained by my eldest daughter in the UK and trust me, 6 year olds cannot be shown any mercy nor trace of weakness!

Playing with this beautiful little girl, she reminded me constantly of what Emily and I were missing; they are the same age, the same colour of hair and I have no doubt, the same infectious laugh and demeanour that all little girls have and especially in the eyes of their fathers.  

I have very mixed feelings; depressed because Emily and I were not allowed to see each other and yet, I also believe this is the start of another road to demonstrating why Sheila should not be allowed to have primary residency of Emily.

No sooner had I arrived in Panama City than Sheila and her sister, Debbie Martin commenced calling the police claiming threats and harassment.  Patsy and I actually went into the police station in order to collect any police reports that had already been filed; several had been filed dating back over a year and less than a day despite this being my first visit to Panama City and as luck would have it, there was Sheila's car in the lot because she was in the station filing yet another.

I'm going to kidnap Emily, I'm violent, I will abuse Emily and on and on and on ad nauseum this goes.

The police are powerless; court orders have less value than the used toilet tissue flushed down the bowl each morning and the calendar continues to count down the erosion and destruction of one of the two most important relationships Emily can have in her childhood; a relationship with her mom and with her dad.

I'm all out of emotion, it's time to just become ice inside and not feel the pain or distress; it won't help Emily and it won't get me to where I intend to be; playing with a rumbunctious little cheeky-faced girl who squeals when she gets a strike on the Wii.

Meanwhile, Georgia needs the rain because it will hide my tears if I give in to my feelings.

You are the writer true and true Karl, old friend. Your words can move mountains... and more than that, they brought me to tears, which is not so easy to do these days (slash last couple of years). The rain is good. Let it rain...

I wish I had more words for you, but alas, I do not, and you know all too well why... We'll just let it rain for now. Maybe tomorrow the sun will come out.

holly you believe anything you read? what utter crap you write Karl aka Holly?

Holly Rodriguez said...

Dear Anonymous, That's a negative, darlin'...

"Karl aka Holly" is a non-entity - both Karl and I are very real and very separate beings... What we DO have in common, however, is very real. Although we live some 5,000 miles or so apart, I'd say we've each walked in the others shoes the better part of this painful journey - do not speak of things you know not - you make yourself out to be a fool.

And reeeally, have you nothing better to do than to write such petty posts on people's blogs?!?

Holly

Happy New Year All, note Karl is back to his old tricks and editing of e mails again pertaining to be from myself on his blog,Karl is attempting to make it seem I have sent him these e mails saying such awful things about Emily when I have,nt, but we all relizse now just how desperate and in need of help Karl is, as Josef cannon stated, Karl is lost , has not many friends and has lost his supporters financially and otherwise and has received financial help from him on occasions also . This is a man who has used and abused others help and hospitality and is no better than Fred Jackson a man whom Karl berated on so many occasions as he did regarding others Robert Skelton and Jill Jones included, who if it had not have been for her or her foundation Karl Hindle would not have been allowed back into the United States .Karl Hindle was deported from Florida and only through others campaigning and supporting him was he able to obtain a Visa earlier this past year.
Now that Karl has met a as in his words a "Brainless disgustingly Mature"(older senior) whom he is planning to marry in hope of obtaining permanent residency in US.
There has also been allegations and e mails of Karl Hindle being inappropriate with a minor on his past visit to Florida
Now is this the kind of man who has used , been devious and abused others support and hospitality and left a trail of debt behind him and bankrupted another whom he used until September until he was caught lying and deceiving others.
Karl Hindle is trying his utmost to try and slander and upset others but know what Karl? EVERYONE IS ONTO YOUR DECEPTIONS NOW AND FULLY AWARE OF YOUR DEVIOUS TACTICS TO SLUR OTHERS SUCH AS MYSELF AND JILL JONES ECT.
We really do not care what Mr.Hindle writes, sends or otherwise.
It seems while Mr Hindle does not wish for certain matters to be made public he launches attacks on others.
Take care ,x
Angela Jackson.
