By 8 am it had barely reached 20 degree's and my body was stoved up in excruciating pain. This weather is torture for those of us who are homeless. If we subjected criminals to this it would be considered cruel and unusual punishment.Last night I tried to stop the smell of mold and mildew by pouring disinfection on the floor.. I should have never done it. All night the fumes of Pine Sol stunk up this small space and made me very ill. I must have the most sanitized mold and mildew in the world.
When you are homeless you start to do some crazy things trying to get warm and comfortable. Last winter my feet started to stay permanently wrinkled because keeping them in warm water was the only method I had to stop them from freezing. That led to fungus in my toes that was almost impossible to get rid of. I have spent a lot of nights sleeping in running vehicles.Well meaning people have suggested all kinds of things.. including gas heaters. Gas heaters in a storage shed where combustible materials, diesel, gas, hay, tack, boxed belongings and furniture is being stored seems like the recipe for a November 4th bonfire.
The reality is, homeless & warm and comfortable are contradictory terms no matter how you look at it. And the damages are so extensive.
I don't have to be at the Lazy J until Saturday, and my boss has scheduled appointments this afternoon. So I decided to try - yet again - to obtain clean bedding before the sun set today. This seemed like a good day to work inside as much as I was able, but I needed to finish outside.
By 4 pm it was so cold I simply had to stop.. winter is really coming down in seriousness and I am wondering how cold the coldest temperatures are going to be... and if I can survive it.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 am begging anyone in this family for help.
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 footsteps, day by day, month by month, year by year.
Liam Griffin, I sat in your law office with two witnesses as you gave me your promise, your guarantee, that our money would be returned before harm came to us.
Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins you were present the day I signed contract with your son. You walked out of the kitchen with Sylve 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, and you knew what your son had done to them and others.
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, $45,000 from Francis McKinney. The list just goes on and on and on.
Because of Robert Huckins I ended up paying $140,000 to be homeless.. sat in the cold, emotionally, physically and financially broke. In the middle of a recession, with no way to recover the stolen funds.
Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.
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.
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.
Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation. ~
