  1. Hi Othy,

    My name is Mary Jane and I’m from the G-burg and now living in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, after living in Southern California since the day I graduated from high School in 1974 with your Dad, Timothy Schwering.

    I work for, who does email and SMS marketing. You need to create a SMS DB and do coupons to get more people to you venue. YA think????

    I went to school with your Dad, Tim. I saw your blog with the Tree City court house and couldn’t believe it.

    I would love to speak with you. You’re Dad and I have been seeing each other since last summer while I was vacationing in the Burg, after more years than I care to mention,

    Your Dad came to Baja to visit me over Christmas, returned in February, and is due back after the soy beans are planted.

    I’ve known your Dad since I was 12 and he is a great guy! Life has thrown him a few curve balls, and he deeply regrets the circumstances that removed you from his life.

    He would probably shit if he knew I was writing to you, but I’m a little buzzed on some rum and coke and my 14 year old daughter initiated this search to find you.

    You’re Dad loves you. I probably shouldn’t be writing to you, but what the Hell.

    If you would like to speak to your Dad, please let me know.

    He has so much to say to you. If you’re not interested, I will understand and not mention to your Father about this letter.

    If you are interested and would like to speak with me in greater detail, my US phone number is 949-XXX-XXXX.

    I love what you’re doing with your life. Good for You!!!!


    MJ AKA Mary Jane Boone
