Saturday, September 15, 2012: Hi Sam! I am sitting on my patio staring down the coast. I can’t quite see Oceanside with the marine layer coming in, but I know 77-miles down the coast from here, you are there. What a day yesterday. No serious drama unfolded despite the veiled threat made by Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel). She is very angry about the website and for sure I thought retaliation would be on her mind. Instead, a lot of huffing and puffing. I will take that any day knowing what she is really capable of.

My friend Alfredo is back. I don’t remember if I mentioned this before. He made it back a month ago or so. Alfredo was the guy who drove me around during the criminal court days. He’s met Adriana and Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) during those times. So when Adriana told me I was going to need a translator to work with us because she was not going to talk to me, Alfredo was a logical choice and was no threat to anyone. Adriana saw it differently I guess. When we pulled up to the house, she was shouting out the bedroom window to her father, Jorge, to not allow Alfredo in. A notion he thought was ridiculous but what could he do. It wasn’t his house. Soon after Alfredo and Adriana were having a conversation about what an asshole I am. No surprise. She even told him she was mad at him because he was the one driving us the day San Diego News filmed in front of the house last year. Too funny. Alfredo did not buy into the garbage she was selling. He took the high road and preached that life was too short and that if I was that bad of a guy she should be happy she has someone else in her life as long as I continue to be the great Dad I have been. That seemed to actually calm her down believe it or not.

Words to live by Sam.

So, when Adriana found out I was going to pay Alfredo $100 to be a translator, she quickly changed her tune and offered to fill in for him. That’s all it took. $100 to buy Adriana’s undivided attention for the day. Interesting. Once I realized there was nothing to worry about, Alfredo hung out with your grandfather. No worries.

So there we were Sam. For my trouble, you gave me a Monster High pedicure. Which by the way did not last long as it typically does. The blue nail polish washed off in the shower this morning. That actually bummed me out. Then it was onto painting faces on the new plastic toy monsters I brought with me which was following by 30-minutes of homework. I am so proud of you Sam.

Through all that I had an interesting conversation with Adriana. At first she felt compelled to read to everyone who was listening, the contents of the website exposing what she has done to us. Her father was sitting right there. He obviously was not happy. For once I could care less. Everything she was reading was the truth. I hate the fact I had to do this because I have been working for the last 4-years to find a peaceful resolution. I had no idea this struck a bigger nerve with Adriana as it did. After she was done, I asked her why what I wrote bothered her so much. After all if I am the lying abuser she was making me out to be, why would she care what I have to say? As she fumbled for an answer, Adriana finally tells me that she “expected me to do something like this 2-years ago when she was dragging me through the criminal courts”. Interesting point of view.

After a while Adriana realized I was not going to feed into a potential argument. I gain nothing by trying to debate this with a house full of enablers. Besides I was there for you and it was 97 degrees outside. You wanted to go swimming.

At the pool you were fearless in the water, swimming like a dolphin. I was so proud of you Sam! While you were swimming around in the pool, making new friends, Adriana tells me not all is well with her and her boyfriend, Isaias Palomeque (AKA Isaias Uzziel Palomeque, Isaias Palomeque Vergara, Project Manager at DJO Global). It appears my website caused some problems between her and him. What was interesting is that Adriana mentions that Isaias Palomeque is angry because he has been exposed too. She allegedly challenged him to call me and talk to me about it, which of course he did not do. He’s already afraid of me and for good reason. The second reason he has not called is because everything I have been saying is absolutely true. What is he going to complain about? He knowingly did this to himself. Little did he know, I would have taken the call. Why not. From where I sit, this was never about him or Adriana. Its always been about you Sam. That is what these people have never been able to figure out.

So, Adriana continues to tell me that Isaias Palomeque did indeed tell her to find a permanent solution to this situation. Palomeque’s 2- ex-wives have these agreements with him. Adriana flat out told him “no way”. So all this tension and all the things you have had to go without was a byproduct of Adriana’s selfish actions. She has never contributed to a conversation explaining what she wants. Never. As this dialogue goes on, she tells me she would like to have her visa in order for a permanent arrangement to be a reality. Getting married to Isaias Palomeque will not get her a visa with this situation going on because Adriana cannot leave Tijuana without the courts permission anyway. I would sponsor Adriana’s visa in a heartbeat, if I knew she was actually sincere about this. It’s a no-brainer. Let’s see what happens when I tell her his.

Recently, I had the privileged of meeting a guy from the Bay Area who was in a similar situation as we are in now. He heard about our situation through Twitter of all places. His son was abducted by his mother and taken to Mexico. Anyway, he was telling me that it’s amazing how cold and calculated parental child abductors are. That none of them have a conscience about what they have done. Adriana exhibits all the classic parental abductor characteristics. Which reminds me, the conversation with Adriana ended when she asked me to explain to her why I referred to her as a “narcissist” and a “sociopath” on the website. What can I say, if the shoe fits…
