Squatter Equals Headache

Do you want to know what frustration is? It’s having a new home that you can’t move into because the boyfriend of the previous owner will not leave. We got to close on our gorgeous country, retirement, home this past Friday 5/4/12.

Let me start from the beginning.  There once was a geriatric woman who lived in a house with her boyfriend.  She decided she wanted to move to California and sold her house and left her boyfriend behind, wanting nothing more to do with him.  He was supposed to have packed up his things and left, but to our surprise he didn’t.

I can hear the voice in your head saying, “I would call the police and haul his butt out of there.” Guess what I did call the police and found out there isn’t a thing I can do. That was his home and he can stay there until we legally evict him through the courts. I couldn’t believe it when I heard those words coming from the officers mouth.

Here we are with a house that has someone living in it and my entire family and a total of six dogs, two cats, are going to move in on this gentleman tomorrow.  So needless to say it should be a fun time for all.  I will not be posting for a while due to not having internet service.  As that famous line goes, “I’ll be back.”

Daddy of the Heart

Standard

There is a man who has been in my life for as long as I can remember. I’m now sixty-two years old and I can’t imagine him not in my world, even though I know the time is getting ever closer for him to leave the world and me.

Jim has been my father’s best friend since they were boys together in Oklahoma. They survived the hard times growing up, and survived World War II.  They have stuck together like glue.

How do you tell someone they mean more to you than you can really put into words?  There hasn’t been a time when I haven’t heard the words I love you coming out of his mouth. Growing up I always knew he was there, he was my rock, and it hasn’t changed.

I got the best of Jim.  I never lived with him, so I didn’t have the trials and tribulations of everyday life that his own son experienced.  When my life was a wreck he was there for support.  He held my hand while I went to sleep, or rubbed my neck when I had a headache.

To this day, love and encouragement is what I receive from Jim.  I have been so blessed to have another daddy who loves me unconditionally and never fails to show it.

I wish everyone could have a Daddy of the Heart as I did.  Jim is one of God’s blessings in my world that I’m ever grateful for.  Let me know if you have been blessed in your life by someone in your  world.

Grave Injustice by Jada Penn

Standard

Grave Injustice by Jada Penn is one of those books I didn’t want to put down.  The protagonist is Lisa, she is caught between two men and seems to be continually making the wrong choice. She is a very strong willed woman, who wants to run her own life.  She does have the support of her parents and Grandmother.  She lives on an estate which has been in the family for generations.  Jada’s writing is very descriptive of everything around Lisa.  It was easy for me to visialize the characters as well as the surroundings.

Outside influences begin to cause problems .  Strange things happen to Lisa, and she confides in her long time housekeeper.  The man Lisa tries to distance herself from is having problems himself and is doing everything in his power to get Lisa for himself.

If you enjoy reading a good paranormal, mystery you will enjoy Grave injustice.  That’s my two-cents for today.
