Saturday, May 17, 2014: Hi Beautiful! It was so great to see you. Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) actually stuck to her word. We are actually going to the Real Del Mar pool today! It’s cooled off considerably the last couple days. I don’t care if it was winter out, get us out of that house! I drove my car down because the court official’s truck is still in the shop. I offered to drive all of us to the pool, even offered to put the top down on the convertible. While you loved the idea, Adriana did not want anything to do with this and even discouraged you from going with me. It was sad and yet so predictable. What did Adriana think was going to happen with the court official with us? Be that as it may, there was no one using the community pool. It was a little dirty from all the smoke and ash from the San Diego fires the last few days. Adriana did not join us in the water. We were on our own. And that was fine with me. The pool was not too deep, 5-feet (1.6m) on the deep end. Still deeper than you are tall so it was nice to see how well you swim Sam. You showed absolutely no fear at all knowing I was there to help you if you needed it. We had a blast!

Adriana packed a little food for us, which was nice. We engaged in small talk. I did not ask her one single question about her being married. I did not want to light that fuse. Let her bring it up if she wants to. I did inquire about Axel Alvarez Coronel (AKA Axel Coronel). According to Adriana he is going away to college next year. Good for him. I am sure he cannot wait to get out of that house.

So, we have these meetings with DIF coming up. The other judge in the other court wants DIF to have all of us take these tests. More importantly they want to see how you are really doing with the obvious alienation that has been going on all these years. At first I thought this was another stall tactic by that judge. Then it dawned on me that DIF really took notice of what was going on when they were in that meeting in the judge’s chambers not long ago. They took note of Adriana’s behavior too, which started this whole discussion. Adriana knew that too because they scheduled for her and you to go first.

My appointment with DIF is on Monday. Clearly, Adriana is worried about what I was going to talk to them about. I refused to ask her how the appointments went for her and for you. I wanted to keep it light and keep you happy. Besides we all know how well Adriana tells the truth. So, why bother engaging her in the first place. I will find out the truth from DIF. With Adriana, I learned to just stick to asking questions we already know the answers to. Eventually Adriana did ask me what I was going to say to DIF. I told her that I had no idea what they were going to ask me and that what I say when I see them is what I will say. Adriana seemed dumbfounded by the simplicity of my response because she likes to go into things like that being well “rehearsed”.

The court official had to get going at 2:30. I had no idea at the time but Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) came to take Adriana’s car. She needed it to run errands. So, I offered to drive you and Adriana home since it was on our way to the toll road. Again, she declined opting instead to walk home with you and all the stuff we took to the pool. I even offered to allow her to drive the car to the house to erase any unfounded fear she had. After all that was a lot of stuff to carry back to the house. Again she declined, even after listening to you object to the absurdity of it all too. Incredible Sam.

Be that as it may, I had a blast with you Sam! I wish we could have more of them. Soon Beautiful. Soon. I LOVE YOU!!!
