The Opposite Of Poverty Is Not Riches. The Opposite Of Poverty Is Justice

Early yesterday evening the migraine intensified and I ended up crawling under blankets to try and sleep it off. All through the night it got worse, and finally resulted in bouts of vomiting and loss of vision. It was an awful night, and a painful night. I woke up this morning feeling awful. Not even enough energy to move around.

I overheard it being reported that we had a 100 inches of snow this winter. I am praying that this is our last snowstorm and spring and summer will make my existence a little more easier to tolerate for a few months.

Before 9 am I started phoning job prospects getting a little more defeated each time I was told to call "next week." By 10 am I was in tears. I could work if I had a home and facility, but being homeless restricts you and becomes such a horrible barrier.
Having woken up so ill I started to become more ill as the stress built up. By 11 am I was incapacitated with a violent migraine.

Human beings are not designed to take this level of stress, hardship and abuse. All humans have the tenacity to hang on for a period of time. But as the months stretch into years your health goes, your ability to withstand frigid temperatures decreases.. you start to stop.
And that is especially true when you are alone.
I started cold calling every business in Ruidoso around 2 pm, trying to find any work. I finally found work for one day a week - for which I was terribly grateful. It doesn't even start to equal what I am losing because I don't have a home/facility, but beggars - and the homeless - can't be choosy.

A long time friend and I sat discussing finances. He said, "well if you can't afford".. my immediate response was.. "I CAN afford. What I cannot afford to do is support a convicted felon."

This is baggage. And it's enough baggage to drag any working class woman under.

1) He and his wife can afford to be chain smokers.
2) He and his wife can afford a home.
3) He and his wife can afford veterinarian bills (I know because I was stood right behind him when he paid Becky Washburn.)
4) He and his wife can afford food, electricity, heat, hot water, televisions, computers.
And he has financial stability because he expected others - my mother and I included - to cover his cost of living.

I could afford exactly the same, if I wasn't burdened with HIS cost of living. He's a dependent, he is a stone around our necks and no one should even question what we can afford while we are paying for him and his wife.
Working class people simply cannot afford it. We can't. So he has security, and we do without.



There is an unbelievably NARROW line that separates those fortunate who are comfortable, privileged and solvent [with resources] and those who find themselves homeless, insolvent [with no resources] indigent and vulnerable!

Perhaps the non payment of a bill, overpayment on a credit card, personal overspending, sudden eviction or splitting with a partner - perhaps domestic abuse, drink abuse, smoking abuse, drug abuse, gambling abuse, the adverse effects of criminal penalties - all can lead to a rapid change in lifestyle.

Causes as these can lead a person from one side of the line of security, independence and invulnerability to the other!

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 a
sked 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, 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.
