Does Shivering Count As Exercise?

This morning was simply beautiful even though the night had been very chilly and damp. Gracie is healing well and becoming far braver in her new environment. It won't be long before she is jumping in the truck enthusiastic to go take a ride.

My body is still not adjusting to this chilly damp weather and I'm finding it harder and harder to function. Earlier this morning I thought I could "hear" my joints creak and the pain is so extreme I'm convinced that I would have a lot more fun being tortured. I couldn't describe the discomfort of being without heat or comfort on cold nights. It's such a hardship physically and emotionally.

I spent the day trying to play catch up, delivered a round bale of grass hay to Ruidoso Downs and ran some errands. It wasn't a very hectic day and for that I was grateful because yesterday was a long and hard day. As I drove through mid-town Ruidoso it was pouring down with rain and the Sierra Blanca had an ominous cloud around it... and it's name was "winter ahead."
I am exhausted. In all ways I am thoroughly spent and the thought of the weather getting colder is terrifying me. I cannot imagine what it would be like to live in a home, safe from this cruelty. At least the flies have disappeared.

There has to be someone related to Robert & Sylve Huckins must have some means to reach them, if it be Michael Huckins, Dr.Kenneth Ogilvie ( Diana Huckins? Dominic Huckins? Malcolm Huckins? ) or Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins and get them to return ALL of the money they stole from us so that I can buy a home and get our lives back.
I don't believe I have EVER witnessed any none violent crime that can be as devastating as stealing someone's home. I am walking in Dorothy McKeevers f
ootsteps, day by day, month by month, year by year.

Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins you were present the day I signed contract with your son. You walked out of the kitchen with Sylvi Huckins and your son introduced me to you. He told you that I was the British horse trainer he had told you about, the one he was going to build the home and barn for. Why didn't you say something? There may be a rational and reasonable explanation but I have spent over 3 years, homeless, not understanding it. I understand it even less knowing that though I was a total stranger, both Dorothy McKeever and Sally Canning you KNEW.

Dr. Kenneth Ogilvie, I contacted you and simply asked for a reference, not knowing that Robert Huckins was your cousin. Robert Huckins had just stolen over $30,000 from the domestic violence shelter, HEAL, yet everyone was trying to hide it. There was a history of stealing large amounts of money. $65,000 PLUS from Nancy Canning. $89,000 PLUS from Dorothy McKeever. The list just goes on and on and on.

Women are not banks or loan institutions. Women should not be the source of a retirement fund for people who don't want to do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. Holding women hostage while playing with the judicial system, a horrendous game of cat and mouse extending YEARS, with the victims whose very homes, families and stability are in jeopardy is cruelty, as cruel as a physical beating. It is financial and emotional RAPE. Homelessness is not justice. It is a slow, painful death.
Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.

Please, I beg with everything I have within me, please convince Robert Huckins to stop this torture and return the building fund he stole from us so we too, can have a home.

Difficulty need not foreshadow despair or defeat. Rather, achievement can be all the more satisfying because of obstacles surmounted. ~William Hastie
