Living Wage Illusion

The last week has been a veritable nightmare and I'm a little unsure if heading into another week of this chaos is within my capability.

On Wednesday I drove to Branson to meet with my youngest daughter and spend two days putting in job applications and looking for any type of housing if it be owner-financing, lease to own, rental or lease. The fact that there is employment cannot be denied. But without a home it's the continued same old same old, and the wages do not pay well enough to finance a home.

By Thursday qualifying for a homepath loan seemed to be moving further and further away. If I get a job I can't find one that pay's above minimum wage, therefore I cannot meet the eligibility of the mortgage. If I put both of my businesses back into production I may be able to build the clientele to surpass the income set as a requirement by the homepath loan but they refuse to accept self employed earnings.

Until then I am stuck betwixt the devil and the deep blue sea unable to find a lease or rental that I can afford or maintain. The feeling of frustration was intensified when I learned that the home I had desperately wanted to buy had already been sold while I was frantically trying to meet the mortgage requirements. 

This is what comes first, the chicken or the egg scenario and I am getting sick and tired of paying the price for the debt Robert Huckins owes.

Meanwhile another victims faxed court documents for the impending civil action, which is not expected to go to trial until November of 2012.Prayerfully the judge in the 12th district will open her eyes to the damages the victims of Robert Huckins have sustained and do something about it.

The drive to and from Branson was simply spectacular. I drove through Roaring Rivers and so many quaint Ozark mountain villages and hamlets. The Ozarks are beautiful, that no-one can deny. Seeing my grand-daughter and youngest daughter again was a wonderful treat though I could see the stress my daughter was experiencing being unable to help me recover from this crime. The reality that Rio and Gracie are starting to show the effects of the long term stress and frustration wasn't helping any.

I drove back to Cassville more than a little depressed. My nerves were simply shredded. On Tuesday I will return to see if I can find a home somewhere, anywhere, that meets my needs ~ Lord, please open that door. It's been closed for far too long.

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.
