Re: Exodus

Jim -- what Lynda said! This is really a bummer and I hate to think of you leaving all your special plants, but "Travels with Squinty" sounds like a good next chapter in your memoirs. You could do worse than land in Oregon. Keep us all posted! I hope the prospective buyer pans out --

Gosh, don't even know what to say.  That's just the pits.  I hate this
turmoil for you, but have every confidence you'll face it with your usual
aplomb.  If you need to unload, this is the spot.

Zem is right - it could make a heck of a road trip.

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.
