Saturday, June 21, 2014: Interesting day Sam. First day with the court official back. We met in front of Lourdes’s office. As we were driving, the court official tells me about the day Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) and Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) went into court to tell the judge all these lies about him. He was still angry talking about it. I reassured him I already knew about that. Lying is what these people do. It’s all they know HOW to do. Welcome to my World. The court official also acknowledged reading what has transpired since and he is shaking his head as to how the judge could allow that to happen for as long as it’s happened.

In reality, we had no idea if you were even at the house. Maybe Adriana took you to San Filipe after all. It turns out, you were home and Adriana was not happy to see the court official. After all that, she did not go anywhere. All of this is Adriana’s own doing given her propensity to lie her way through things rather than try to come to a peaceful resolution for your benefit.

Not surprisingly, “the zoo” is down a couple animals: 2 dogs and 2 birds. The dog who is no longer there decided to eat one of the birds for lunch. That has not stopped the other 2 birds from pooping all over the place: the furniture, your toys, anything that looked like a toilet bowl to them. I spend the first 10-minutes or so cleaning your toys. Afterwards, we did what we always do, play with your toys as we are sequestered in that playroom.

The night before was Adriana’s birthday. Clearly some remnants of that were around the house. The balloons, the flowers, confetti, etc. Not sure where Isaias Palomeque (AKA Isaias Uzziel Palomeque, Isaias Palomeque Vergara, Project Manager at DJO Global) or Danny Howitt (AKA Daniel Duncan Howitt, Elizabeth Farquhar Duncan, Kenneth Duncan) were. Nor did we really care. Adriana got all dressed up for our visit. Not sure why. None the less, she shared some of her birthday cake with us, which was nice. You were funny, wanting to smash her face in the cake like you did to me with your birthday cake. Adriana was not having it. None the less, it was a nice gesture on Adriana’s part. The cake was very good.

At one point you were getting annoyed with the birds and started to return the favor. A couple times the birds were mere inches away from flying right over the court official’s head as they landed on the picture that stood behind him on the wall. Half way through our time, the animals even affected his’s sinuses. As the court official was writing up his report for the court, you and I took the show outside where you were playing veterinarian to Foska and Bonbon. It was funny. I felt a little sad because Foska is a cool dog and yet I can see her gray hair starting to come in. She is getting older. It made me think of Littleman as he was getting older. I could not help but think of what a privilege it really is to have animals like this in our lives. I am going to bring treats for the dogs the next time I come.

Speaking of Littleman, after I dropped off the court official I stopped in an OXXO to buy a coffee. They actually have pretty good coffee in those stores. Outside the store was a kitten that looked just like Littleman when he was just a few months old. I tried to talk to the cat as I walked in the store, but the cat was not having it. He/she was chillin’ out. I could not tell if the cat was a stray, born on the streets or what. It was definitely some time since it last ate, that much was obvious. OXXO did not have cat foot in the store, but they did have tuna. After finding a can of tuna I did not need a can opener for, I bought it along with my coffee. As I exited the store, I was looking for a place to put my coffee as it was very hot. It was almost as if the cat knew I had food for him/her because it ran right up to me meowing all the way. This happened before I could even open the can of tuna. How did Littleman’s clone know? I placed the open can down and before I could blink, it was ½ gone. This poor cat was starving. Staying a little bit to pet him, I can hear and feel the purring coming from the cat as a token of appreciation. I don’t know what the laws are for adopting animals like this from Mexico to the United States. I would have given this little guy a home if I knew I could. I had to choice but to let him be free. After all he could be someone’s pet and he’s just roaming the neighborhood. Either way, this was a sign from Littleman. I know it. I miss my big guy. He’s been gone for a while now. Hard to believe. This was no coincidence. Thank you Littleman. Send some love Sam’s way!
