Hello to everybody

It’s nice to be able to say “Hey world, don’t forget the underdog here?”
Now, would it be too much trouble for a nice woman to say “Hello!” back to me?
I now have 4 yrs & 7 months to go til I’m released from prison.
You all have no idea how bad I want to see my kids & be the father I was meant to be.
I screwed up out there leaving my kids without their father & my kids mothers went & did their own thing leaving me to rot.
I miss my boys & my daughter.
I hope that they can forgive my absence of being gone for the 12 years total?
I’m not gonna come out of this a bitter old man, I’m better than that & I have my own relationship with the Lord.
But I will always know that I am no better than you or anybody else.
I’d like to be given the chance to prove myself & die as a hero.
I did my share of doing stupid shit & it’s come back to always nip me in the ass.
If you knew me back in the 80’s as Ernie from Olympia Washington.
I was a troubled kid & sort of forced to being a outcast among my peers.
I’d like to say that I am sorry for how bad & weird I used to be.
I lived in the Lakewood/Tacoma area, when I fell back in 09.
A lot of folks knew me by my stupid nickname as ODIE.
I used to be a Bouncer at a bar called “CheersWest”, back in 04 & shared A.A. meetings all at the same time.
I was at CheersWest for a good 6 months & had quit to be a Stagehand (Roadie).
I was clean & Sobor as a Bouncer, but I got into the METH & things fell apart after that & now I’m doing some time.
I’m 46yrs old now, & I miss riding my Harley Davidson.
Yeah, I’d call myself an old scooter tramp, but not club worthy.
It’s been hard to fit in where ya were never wanted.
But I’ve never really had that brotherly support & I guess I’m a lost cause.
But my current calling is to be the father I never had.
I want to make things so right with my kids, so they don’t ever forget that I’ve never stopped loving & missing them.
I’m not some werido, just said weird shit to throw others off & make myself sound a little crazy & wild to impress or to show off.
I’m looking for a good woman, 30 plus years old & not some psycho bitch from hell.
I’d like to forget my past hookups & what each wrong they had done me.
It’s what I get for sleeping with dogs, & got their fleas as a payback.
I’m not also into women that don’t take care of themselves.
I’m not gonna hustle some beastly woman for her $, & fill her head with empty promises.
I’m not like that, that’s cruel & not fair to Lady Hopeful.
I’d rather be a little blunt & respected for my honesty, than live a lie.
I’m tired of trying to please others & throwing myself under the bus.
I feel I deserve to be treated right & no longer be someones doormat.
I’m not rich on email stamps, so if someone wants to donate to my Media Account it would be greatly appreciated by me.
If your cool & would like to get to know more of me, then send me a cool email & a possible pic.
A return stamp goes a long way.
I got envelopes if you have an address.
I’ve got a lot to say & it be nice if I had more support than my dear ol mom & the one friend that has stayed along during this rough ride.
I am sad, that I haven’t ever even seen my kids, but have sent Birthday cards to them except for my daughter who supposedly lives in Yakima Valley somewhere.
I also have Heart Disease & I pray that I don’t die before I get out of prison.
Can some women or a special woman come into my lonely life & let me know that I matter?
I’m not the criminal type, just got reckless in my life.
If you have read this, Thank you for your time & I hope to hear from you soon.

Until you’ve been arrested
and spent endless days in jail
and walked a thousand miles
without ever leaving your cell

Until you’ve lost your family
and your utterly alone
you try to seek comfort
realizing it was left at home

Until you’ve faced a judge
and entered a guilty plea
and you’ve heard the words of
judgement that you won’t be going free

Until your days turn into
months and months turn
into years, you lie awake at
night shedding endless tears

Until you’ve lost all hope and every
dream you’ve ever had,you fight
to keep your sanity and fear that
you will go mad

UNTIL you’ve gone through all
these things and all human will
how can you look at me
and say, you know
just how I feel

Alex, today you are 8 years old & your dear ol’dad wanted to tell you, & how much I love you and miss you.

I wish I could have called you too, but it’s up to your mom if she will EVERlet me have a relationship with you & Austin—your big brother—just had turned 10 years old.

Anyway’s Alex hopefully someday you & Austin will find out that I have always loved you two, & have NEVER stopped thinking of ya.



I just got back from the Hospital out on the sreet just now.

I got to see my heart thru altra-sound.
Hopefully my heart is alright.

I just think I have a broken heart,ha ha.


I am not a bad man, just a fuck up & I’m sorry.


DOES anybody remember ODIE from Pierce county of Washington state?
6ft 4,long blond hair, blue eyes
Strange but goofy & loved to flirt with the ladies & fun.
So, if you know me please drop me a note or if not I like to meet new folks.

I’m looking for some extra support in this time.
I know that my kids need me & I am worried that I may not get out of prison alive due to a heart condition, where not enough oxegen is getting to my heart.


I’m sorry for letting you down & leaving you the way I did.
If you can’t email me back—then you know you can always drop me a letter.
I am not the same man as you want to remember,& I like who I am now.
The only part that is missing from my life is a relationship with my boys & my daughter that’s somewhere in Yakima Vally somewhere.

I have one friend & he too has a life of his own, but I am & have been alone for a long time—especially for the last 7 years I’ve been down.
I still got some time to do,but I’m not gonna waste it on hating on you & our past.
I will always love you, but I can Never be with you.
You take care & give my love to my boys.

Birthday Call



TODAY is Austin’s 10th Birthday.

I tried to call but your # was disconnected.
How nice.

I really wanted to sing to our older son, but I am crushed to be duped again.

I want the world to know that I do care about being a father, because I never really had one of my own.

Please tell Austin that DAD wanted to tell him HAPPY BIRTHDAY & that I love him VERY MUCH.

Happy Birthday


Please tell our boys that their daddy has missed them & never stopped loving them.

I’ll be saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Austin & I hope he liked my card that I sent to him.

I won’t forget about Alex for his 8th Birthday next month.

But I am proud to be a father, & I am so sorry that I am here, but not for too long & I’ll be out of this prison to make a better life for myself & be the father I was supposed to be.

All I ask is to give me a break & start letting me have a relationship with my boys?

You do what you wanna do, but please I beg ya to let me be in our boys lives.
