Back To Louisiana

It had been awhile and so it was time to go back to Louisiana.  The US Army Criminal Investigation Division was still looking for me and so going directly back to Ft. Polk would ensure my capture.  Alexandria was my destination, where staying in a hotel and visiting with people over the weekend would be safe.  Some …

I Needed A Place To Stay

Cocaine

Now that I had my car back, I needed a place to stay.  Sid and Dee decided to let me crash at their place for awhile.  At some point, the urge to call my parents came over me.  I did not want my dad to get into trouble for knowing where I was.  Since he …

We Were Free!

Houston

We were free!  Escaping all judgment and punishment, we were on our way to a new life with no rules or restrictions.  I was excited to do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted to.  As soon as we got there, I took out the maximum daily limit out of an ATM, which was about two …

Busted Again!

Railroad Tracks

I told Jane about getting busted and that I wasn’t snitching for the cops.  She knew I was cool and could trust me and so we took another trip to Houston. We combined our finances to bring back a big haul of “X”.  We were going to make a killing and have plenty for ourselves …

From Army To Drugs

I went through US Army Basic Training at Ft. Knox, KY in late 1987. My advanced training was mixed in with the basic and so I was there for 14 weeks.  It was easy in some parts and hard in others.  The hardest part for me was the physical training.  I some how evaded Physical …

Soldier

Growing up I wanted to be a soldier.  It is the only thing I wanted to be, besides Indiana Jones.  In a toss up between Indiana Jones and Rambo, the latter won out in my mind as the job of choice.  I  had some ancestors fight for the Union in the Civil War.  One of …

Oh No, What Have I Done?

general population

Oh no, what have I done?…. If you know me in person, or if you have read my previous posts, I generally tend to be more lighthearted.  My dilemma is that because of my past, I have to shift gears completely to tell my story. The posts related to this particular life event will be …
