I am going to start out with the other things in today’s blog.  In my last post I wrote about my squatter, ED. I want to give you an update. Ed has finally got the message he doesn’t live here anymore. A friend of his helped move him out and put his stuff in storage. It took a week after that for him to stop coming to the house and just walking in. We finally got the police involved and social services. He told the police how mad he was about us “taking his mailbox down.” I feel so bad for Ed, but there is nothing I can do.

My house is all painted and it looks good. My furniture will be arriving from Texas this next week. I’ll be so glad to have my “things about me, again.” I think that line came from a John Wayne Movie. Do you know which one? I will post it at the end of the blog.

I was reading this morning about how the Catholic Bishops were talking about women and birth control. First of all let me tell you, I am Catholic, not a cradle one, but converted. If I’m asked what religion I am I tell them I am a Pentecostal Catholic. So I do have some different view from the church.

I very much believe in birth-control for women. I do believe the bible is the inspired word of God, but I know it was written by men of the early church, who’s world was nothing like ours.  Men ruled at that time and still feel they have to now (In the church). I am not a subservient woman, and I believe I have the same rights as any man. I may not have the same strengths but I do have different ones. I believe that any woman should be able to choose to use birth control.

Oh yes, the answer to the John Wayne question is “The Quiet Man.” When Maureen O’Hara was giving John Wayne a good talking to about her dowry, she told him of having her things about her.  Did you guess it right?  Until next time stay safe and happy.

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.”
