They are doing a show tomorrow at Diana’s old school. The house was cleaned by the cleaners yesterday. Doris will call Medicare on Monday to restore her Medicare and inquire about supplemental coverage, so she could still use Sutter Health and the same doctors and prescription coverage. The will do show next Saturday in San Francisco. Doris hope to talk with Ryan Kobayashi about my volunteering services. Patches bought too much stuff this trip and wonders if she ha the capacity to carry all the stuff home. She liked the custom orthidic and is comp templating getting another pair. Doris was disappointed with the response from San Francisco Immigration community, I told her we have to expect rejections form the public because I am a felon. but we need to have the perseverance and tenacity to keep moving forward to other opportunities. Doris paid of Social Security. I told Doris and Patches not to donate my stuff to charity as I might need them. Francis is staying until January 15, 2024. I told them my realistic release date is May 2025. The 2 point sentence reduction might help reduce it by 6-12 months and also the Second Chance Act for elderly inmates might help. Patches said, If I found out my release date, she will fly over here to drive me home. Doris will make transportation arrangement with Michelle for future transportation needs. We enjoyed the Dr. Pepper, Potato chips, potato skins chips and coke. it was a very good visitation. Chan took a picture for us. and told us the prior pictures should be ready next week.
