|After a trip to Carmel on Dec 16,
Jackie called to complain about
Laci. "She looked so silly" she
said. "She was wearing white
gloves and a white scarf. She
looked like Minnie Mouse."
"You didn't say anything," I asked.
"No, but the next day she wore
black gloves and a black
scarf, and it wasn't much of an
improvement." Jackie replied.
|LACI & CONNER
I pray for Laci, Conner and Laci's family often. Scott got by
with his evil on earth but he hasn't met his maker yet......!

|JACKIE PETERSON REMARKS
ABOUT LACI TO ANNE BIRD
|On our trip with the family to Disneyland
in November 2002, I said to Laci,
"I'm so glad you're having a boy",
"Me too" said Laci. "What do you think of
the name 'Logan?'" "I love it" Anne replied.
"I don't. I don't like it at all" Jackie piped up
in a very mean way. When I looked at
Laci, she looked as if someone had
slapped her across her face.
|In her book, Bird seemed puzzled
by her mother's thinly veiled dislike
for Scott Peterson's bubbly wife.
Bird churned out vignettes in proof:
Jackie Peterson critiquing her daughter-
in-law's thank-you cards, nastily objecting
to Laci Peterson's wish to name her
son Logan, and turning her nose up at her
daughter-in-law's hometown — Modesto.
"I was beginning to understand why Jackie
was so critical of Laci," Bird wrote. "No one
was good enough for her golden boy."
|Shortly after a baby shower for Laci, I received
a card. "Thank you for the books and toys. I
can't wait until Conner can play with them and
read with Ryan & Tommy (Anne's boys)."
I thought it was a lovely card. I loved the fact she
was already thinking of our boys playing together.
Jackie called the same day to tell me she received a
card and asked if I liked mine. "Yes", I said. "It was
lovely, why?" "I didn't like the way mine was written,"
she said. "What was wrong with it?" I asked.
"It just didn't seem right. I'm going to send
her a book on how to write thank you notes."
"Please don't do that." I said. "My card was
perfectly lovely. And it will only upset her.
Why upset her when she's so close to having
the baby?" Luckily, Jackie dropped the idea.
|Jackie made a face and said "Laci is
such a perfectionist. She always
has to redo everything. You give her
something that's already perfect, but
she'll still find away to improve it."
It wasn't a compliment, Jackie seemed
to be hinting that Laci took Martha Stewart
a little more seriously than nature intended.
|"Jackie Peterson told me she couldn't stand
Modesto, and she was worried that Laci
was going to talk Scott into moving there.
"It's a nothing little town on the wrong side of
the tracks," Jackie said. "I don't like it at all."
