This post is way not quilting or art related, but I needed to get it out anyway. For the past year & a half, a farm we sold went into foreclosure, another lender filed the original action against the borrower, the same guy I sold the farm to. We, brother & I, have been led along by this guy forever it seems. We offered him a settlement at a reduced price just to get rid of him. The closing was supposed to happen today, I was relieved & happy that it was finally at an end. Then my lawyer calls late yesterday to say the deal fell through- nothing like short notice, you know. Anyway, at this time, our lawyer is filing papers with the court to have the property sold at auction. Its the only way we'll ever get our money out of him. The past few months have been an emotional rollercoster. Even though it will take a few additional months to wrap this thing up, the little delay will be worth the wait if we get our money & get rid of this pesky man, whom I wish I'd never heard of now. Okay, I've said my peace & thank you for letting me do it. I just hope my mortgage company will be as lenient as you dear reader, because my home is on the line because of this fool who has not paid as he was required to, now the farm is being sold out from under him & I hope he learns his lesson about biting off more than he can chew.
