Outside The Comfort Zone

Waking up to temperatures in 20's is getting old ~ and winter hasn't arrived in earnest yet. Yesterday I was simply exhausted having spent days in horrible pain. When you go to sleep shivering, wake up shivering, and live in sub-standard conditions fighting mold, mildew, damp, floods, filth it doesn't take long for your health to decline.Yet the day exceeded my wildest expectations soaring into the upper 60's, a fabulous day more befitting summer than the day before Thanksgiving. I felt so blessed.

Tomorrow all across the United States families will celebrate Thanksgiving and millions of homeless people won't be able to celebrate anything, but another day of struggle.
Yesterday and today the stores in Ruidoso were packed with people trying to get their shopping done before tomorrow. As I watched the crowds I couldn't help but wonder about the "others."

Because this blog gets comparatively high traffic, and has been getting higher traffic in the past 2 weeks than at any time previously, I would like to extend my genuine appreciation to all of those with caring hearts. Thousands of people have moved outside their comfort zone for the benefit of others. Their work, whether it be with the homeless, women victims of crime, domestic violence/abuse, or any other altruistic cause is a blessing so many are thankful for.

It would be amiss not to give you a THANK YOU this Thanksgiving season.

By nightfall it was back in the 20's again and as I sat wearing both hoodies trying to keep warm I wondered how those homeless people who don't have unlimited warm clothes are going to survive tonight.
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 vio
lent 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 f
or 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, pl
ease convince Robert Huckins to stop this torture and return the building fund he stole from us so we too, can have a home.
