To all Community Service Personnel

Congratulations in taking your first step in fulfilling your debt to society.

I once was were you are now. I grew up in the 10th Ward up in Rochester NY and I most likely did what you all have done but I was never caught in America.

I hit my bottom when I was in the US ARMY, in Mannheim Germany during the Cold War. After getting arrested time and time again, I was nearly stabbed to death in Heidelberg, Germany and due to my part in this altercation, I was facing three years in Fort Leavenworth Federal Prison.

When I came back to the World I decided if I wanted to live to be 22 years old,I needed to change my whole life around.

I found the help that I needed and now I have been clean and sober for 28 years.

The bottom line is that you have choices today. It's up to you in how well we are going to get along during your time at Puffy Paws.

Puffy Paws Thrift Shop is " NOT " a Day Care for Felons. It is really simple - You must have listening skills, if you do as your told - when your are told the way you are told, we will get along fine. If not you will cost me time and money.

If that happens you will not like your time at Puffy Paws and you be running away with your stories of woe ! If you think my old school, Sesame Street, military style of running things are bad .What are going to do when you hit jail again and or prison where their is people who are out to hurt you, steal from you and make your life miserable ?????

Just remember one thing, you can not con a con, and if you try, enjoy doing your Community Service else where.

Just follow the few simple rules and you will enjoy your time here and this part of your life will be over so you can move on to bigger and better things.

Godspeed To You All
