2-years, 11-months, 13-days into Samantha’s abduction

Sunday, October 23, 2011: Hi Sweetheart! I miss you Sam. I am a couple hours from my jiu jitsu tournament. I am excited. I get to measure my skills against other competition I do not train with. It should be fun. Wish me luck.

Yesterday was a bizarre day. When I was leaving to come see you, my car had two flat tires. Not one but two. My car only has one spare. Suffice it to say, I was worried I would not get to see you. While the auto shop was busy, they did work hard to get me out of there. Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) was flexible allowing me to visit you later in the day. Even though it was only 3-hours, I’ll take it. Seeing you made my week!

Under the watchful eye of the Tina, the housekeeper, we played broom ball for a while. Then it was watching SpongeBob Squarepants. Then helping you with your homework, reenacting Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I know the time went by fast. I wish I could have stayed longer. I was being pressured to leave at 7:00 because Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) was going to a concert with her friend. I have no idea what that that had to do with me because Omar Mireles Martinez and Tina were at the house, but I was not going to make it a big deal. I was grateful to have spent time with you. It meant the world to me Sam.

In the meantime, I am working hard. I am worried about how all this is going to come together. There are three appeals I have to fight. All will be time consuming to say the least. It is what it is. I am talking to more media outlets that have an interest in the story. I think it’s the only way to level the playing field here. KISSES SAM! I LOVE YOU!
