Doing legal work for the poor, especially during the pandemic, really shows you how some people view other people as no more than chattel or, dare I say it, human capital.
That's awesome that you do representation for the poor -- thanks for looking out for them!

It's all so strange.

Until Tuesday mid afternoon we were gearing up for another battle. And by noon today the house is, finally, ours.

I'm still feeling all tense and the idea that is over is so incredibly strange and unreal. I expect it'll take a while to get used to this new reality.

My sister and I just ordered an obscene amount of candy. We used to buy candy and a stall on the market on Saturday. But that seller stopped coming to our market and the candy stall replacing it doesn't have our favourites. So now we occasionally order our candy online. We thought today would be a good day.

Usually you get it within a couple of days. But on their website they warn it can take up to week, due to Corona measures in their warehouse and slower delivery by postal services.

Celebratory candy! I wish I had some for you or with you. Congrats again, Rumple. Enjoy that confectionary when it arrives.

My father talked to the solicitor this morning and he told my father that my uncle has said that he never wants to meet or have anything to do with either my father or my aunt.

Success!

Although I know it will hurt my aunt, who still seems to believe in a happy family that'll get along somehow.

Uh...hooray? (It's hard to know what to say to that one! I mean...you know, it seems sad, but given everything that's happened, it seems great, too!)

Not much is my guess. We never had much contact and whatever contact we had was never initiated by them. Unless they needed your help (moving, electrics, etc). It has always been like that. Whenever the family got together or all the grandchildren got together they would keep to themselves and hardly interact with the rest of the family.

During the fire one of them lived literally around the corner. At my grandmother's funeral she claimed she didn't know about the fire. It made national news. There were firetrucks parked outside her bedroom window. About six months after the fire her, by then, ex boyfriend came by and apologized they didn't come and help after the fire. I think she knew what their father was planning to do.

Then we had the drama last year. They also didn't show up at my cousin's get together. One of the twins claimed they didn't know about it, I know that my cousin invited them all personally via text, email and Facebook message.

Last summer I ran into the oldest in the supermarket twice. While I greeted him he ignored me.

A couple of weeks ago one of the twins came by the store. Although I don't think she came to our town just to "spy" on us. But she did ask how the store was doing during the Corona crisis. I'm convinced that my answer of that we were doing okay might have influenced my uncle's decision to sign quickly. If I had told her we weren't doing well he might have tried to drag it out, making it costs us more money.

Both my sister and I have decided not to contact them anymore. I think the same goes for my aunt's daughters (not sure about her son). If they want any contact it'll have to come from them and when that happens I decide whether I want to or not.

Cars depreciate about 40% in the first three years. If you're going to keep the car for a decade or more, buying new car just doesn't make sense. There are plenty of people who get a new car every three years or so and trade in at the dealer. Buy one of their trade-ins.

I'm on my own at the store now. I don't think that besides helping customers I'll be very useful today.
Oh, many, many congratulations!

(And now make sure that your parents have made wills, so that there will be no nasty disputes later on...)

You should try a suit in the US Court Of Claims. One I was involved with took over 10 years, with the main principles mostly dead by the end. . .

I think the only reason it got settled was that the government lawyer wanted to retire, and coukldn't easily pass it on to another attorney. . .

Yes, I know. The fact that cars are depreciating assets just makes my head explode. Might as wll throw money into the barbecue pit and burn it. I'm cheap that way; putting money into assets that appreciate is one thing; into something like a car? Utter waste of valuable capital.

I keep my cars about 18 years on average and the current one is 22.
