I had to be in Capitan and Nogal before the snow started falling in earnest, and be back in Alto before 10 am. In Nogal the wind was so ferocious it almost knocked me down. But to Gracie and Rio it was a fun hour galloping through the barn, into the pastures ~ racing around with the joy all dogs just take for granted.
For everyone but the dogs this is such a depressing day and I need some good news, or something to lift me up, because I am so terribly depressed ~ and scared ~ about these recent turn of events.
My bosses son was scheduled to be arriving before noon, as noon gave way to later afternoon and then evening the doom and gloom feeling intensified. He finally arrived after 7.30 pm.
As the weather grew worse I sat wondering when, or if, this homeless and vulnerable nightmare would ever end.
My own patience had run thin well before noon, by evening I had a violent migraine with stress. People don't have a clue what being homeless is like and they throw out cliche's and answers to the problem~ before they even have the question.
No, you can't always move in with family members because they either live in a region that would take away your earning power, or they have problems of their own, or they are struggling and losing everything they own.
I absolutely despair at what people say. It's is so hard listening to "why don't you" over and over again. I'm not in a mid-life crisis, I'm just fed up with the nonsense. Four years is such a long time.
Those in rural area's who find themselves homeless are often tough out of luck. Those in towns and cities have a lot more advantages - but some serious disadvantages too.
But no matter whee they are a homeless person has tried everything humanly possible to rectify a problem ~ they are not stupid people.. they don't have a home. And the reasons are many.

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.
