Oklahoma, Bound for Mexico...
Hi guys, I don't have long to talk...I'm
in a library in some little town in Oklahoma, and I probably only have
a few minutes to send this off before I have to run for it again.
I've had it with my family, and last
night was the last straw. Mom and I got in a huge fight, and she
tried to hit me in the hallway, but I grabbed her arm and shoved her,
she fell down the stairs. She broke her neck and died, and I
Dad was at the store coz there was nothing for the girls' lunches
(today, I guess...), Anne was with him, and Rachel was already
There's not a whole lot more to it than that. I stole the Toyota,
and I was going to go to Lawrence, but I figured that's the first place
people would look for me. This is still more or less unreal to
real enough to keep me

the back door in the barbecue grill on the deck. I need my
and stereo at least. I expect at least one of you to come join me
before I cross the border. C'mon, this is what we've all been
about doing for a long time. Run away and start over.
Same goes for Nicko and Sean, you guys
have to come.
Fuck it, everyone who gets this has
to come. Get out, get all the money you can from wherever you
to, and meet me in San Antonio. I'll drop another line when I
get there and settle in wherever...
Sarah (Toole), and Craig, I've gotta
apologize...I obviously won't be there to pick Sarah up from the
Both of you are more than wlecome in my new life. Sarah, make Mer
come, too. Pack her in the plane, and leave from Kansas with
after you get there on Saturday.
Okay, guys I have to run...I just wanted
to let you all know where I was, and that I'm okay. Hope to see
all in a while (especially whoever brings my stereo and computer
Laters, and wish me luck!
