My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, ... thank you!


Hubby finally back from getting the last of his "stuff' from his dad's farm. Not much: freezer, clothes, hats, couple of Coleman stoves.

As we're getting the last box from the u-haul, he casually mentions that he probably won't be getting any money. That the property probably won't sell for much.


Three properties (1 with a house and huge metal workshop)
1 van
1 pickup truck
1 tractor
and probably $30,000 worth of really cool and huge tools!

No money?!?!

I think next week I might be calling a lawyer.

Just went though this ESTATE business last year and the year before, with my mom and father-in law's passing.Emotions run high, especially when personal affairs were not thoughtfully arranged and there are are dominate personalities involved.

I'm afraid a couple of weeks will not matter-just as likely to be the case in couple of months.

I know it's the "principle" in all regards.But those dollar valued THINGS are representations of tears AND, happy memories.*sigh

I'd suggest going to an Estate/ Family Law attorney NOW, for a free consultation-bring any papers you have and a LIST of questions.. check them off as you go.If need be find another -to finish your Q and A session.I did.

If you ever feel at odds with the whole situation-think of those dollar values as 'pretty little posies' in a field- happy for the view they give can you :) Then get pro-active enough to mend the fence -that lets the neighbors cow in , that would otherwise eat them up!!!!

Best of wishes...time will heal hearts, but not the paperwork.
