I for one, have believed everything you have stated from the very beginning; ;I have seen no need for you to lie to us. It would make a great book
and movie, it reminds me of the movie Roots, a great saga that had everyone on the edge of their chairs in front of the TV to find out what happens
next. Night after night, people were waiting to find out what happened next; and post after post people were here waiting to find out what happened
next; even those that didn't believe you.
It seems to me that when your father deserted all of you to go to Tampa, Florida, and he traded the new house for supposedly the bus ticket to Tampa;
that his trade was possibly not legal.
I'm not sure of the laws in SC but usually a verbal sale without a written contract for "real estate", is not a binding contract; maybe I am wrong
about this for the laws of SC. For the sale of real estate, it usually has to be in writing to be legally binding. Therefore, if the witch in your
story didn't actually have a written agreement for the property, then it was legally still your mothers. Did you ever find out for sure if the witch
had a legally written binding real estate contract?
If she didn't, then she might have legally taken possession of the property years after she moved into. Some states have laws that you become the
owner of the property if you tell others you are the owner and you live on the property for so long. It is only after this period that these people
can become the legal owner.
She may have known about such laws, and have pulled the fast one over your family by legally stealing your property since you didn't legally run her
off of your property. I have assumed all of this though, and only you can set me straight to these facts, of whether she did have a written contract
for the sale of real estate from your father.
If, and I do mean "if" she didn't have such a document, and if she went to prison before that amount of time expired for her to legally stake claim
through legal theft of your mothers property, and it is usually many years in many states, then you might "just might" have some kind of interest in
that property still.
On the other hand, maybe your dad did give her a written bill of sale for that new house; and it was actually legally hers after all. But I for one
am waiting to hear your response as to this matter.
I realize that you must be in your 50's by now. Its strange how the most terrible things in our lives affect us so much. I can see you have had
some ups and downs in your life, maybe you could tell us of some of the other times in your life also, like Miss 500 of 1973. Like the story of what
became of your first husband, and how you and your second husband are doing, and how your brother is doing, and the rest of your family. I hope your
brother is recovering, and doing well.
Are those big guns still up on the hill tops facing out into the countryside from Fort Riley, in Kansas? Is Tex the giant down at the Texas State
Fair still there to greet people? Your whole life is interesting to us now that you have told some of the things that have happened in your life.
One last thing, are you writing all that you have written because you are fearing the end is coming, and that you want everybody to know your story?
Or, are you doing this only in the memory and honour of your family members? Somehow, this sticks in my mind, that you might have something going
through your mind that your time is coming, one way or another; is that true, or just a foolish whim of mine? I hope your arm gets better.
