I am sitting here watching CBS tonight and it’s just surreal. They are profiling the neighbor (and good friend) of Jim’s parents. They lived right next door in Georgia and her name is Cherry. She killed her husband and was sent to prison for murder. It’s just crazy to see someone on TV that you know, and for me, there are details about the case I know which they didn’t disclose! They showed Jim’s aunt Anita (Cherry stayed with them while she was out on acquittal) and they showed his Uncle Greg!! She killed him out of self-defense, although the jury did not believe that. This probably sounds like a rambling, confused post today but it’s just crazy to see this! We spent time with her, Jim rode her horses, she was at our wedding!! We knew they had been taping this last year and I missed the first airing so I’m glad I caught it tonight. Oh how I wish I could TELL ALL because I know so much more of the back story. Honestly though, it’s just a tragic story for everyone involved and I still look back and can’t believe it happened. If you want to read about it, click on this link: http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/48hours/main3410.shtml. It’s listed under “The Right to Kill?” Interesting read if you missed the show.
On another note, we are all sick. I took the boys to the doctor today and it turns out we all have Strep throat!! The great thing though, is I don’t have to worry about missing work to take care of them. That always used to be such a crisis for Jim and I so it’s great to know I can be home and give them extra TLC. Okay, 48 Hours is back on. Unbelievable.
