Re: Exodus

So sorry to hear this Jim.  But I'm sure you will land on your
feet, and maybe find great new interests in Oregon.  At least
you still have Squinty to keep you in line.
Best wishes, Auralie

Today it looks like it's going to work out, so I guess I ought to fess 
up. There are three items on the agenda: 1. Ms Fatma has left me; 2. I 
am going to lose this place; 3. Squinty and I will be moving on.

1. Yes. Ms Fatma is gone, getting a divorce, she says. I feel kind of 
sad that it didn't work out, but life's like that--good days, bad 
days--but it's never the end of the world, just the end of the 

2. No doubt; I'm going to lose this place. Between the insurance rate 
hike and Ms Fatma bailing out, I am not able to make the payments on 
the house. So I quit trying. I may have two months before they throw me 
out. When this became clear, I tried to put the house on the market but 
ran into a number of realtors who did not want to list an "as-is short 
sale." Not enough money in it, they said. So I asked a friend to post a 
notice on a rare fruit chat list that innumerated most of the 
subtropical fruit trees I've planted and groomed and, lo and behold, I 
have unearthed a Roman Catholic priest [no, not Gregor Mendel] living 
abroad who wants to buy it. So this may work out.

3. My sister says she has a spare bedroom that Squinty and I can share. 
So we'll be moving to Oregon. Not sure when... but before they throw me 
out of here in all likelihood.
