Lou my sweet don't be silly my friend, you have done so much for us and sent such lovely treasures for our LadyBug, you must let me do this little thing for you and your new trailer.
You might have to strip them though and re-paint them, and then do a nice acrylic clear spray and they will look like a million bucks...with their sweet little airstream engraved in them....who would have thought airstream would have gone that far to have their name on the handles
maybe a note from one of Wally's book of ideas?????
Carol - ha gosh you remembered that story
Well without going into all the reasons. Ha I am sure I have written a few here in my pure frustration with our government and its municipal system of citizens developing their land. Something that should have taken 4 months and approximately $2500.00 has turned into 5 years and $200,000.00 - this is just a plane travesty of the Provincial Planning Act and ALL those involved to allow this to happen!
My Mother was always a huge advocate that if you want justice for wrong doing that you must do it from within.
So I am going back to school to obtain a double diploma in Paralegal/Law Clerk, to attain my licensee so that I can enter into Municipal Law. I hope to fast track and finish by the spring of 2011. This will allow me to go into University to attain my BA in Legal Studies, and then I can apply to Law School (which I hope to in the states). Thus by 56 my top priority on my bucket list is to become a lawyer.
However, my immediate goal is to increase my employability, so that I can at least find part time work while doing my studies to save our home.
Then either land a good paying job in municipal law or start my own consulting business to assist citizens in avoiding what we have been subject to. AND to start paying for this massive debt all these professional people have sponged from us, stealing and coercing us from our entire retirement savings. I hope to put my smarts toward fighting the unjust billing we have suffered.
Yes I am bitter as to what has happened. But if I can make something positive from this horrible experience that I can be proud of, and I know that my Mum would be so pleased - as my Dad is tickled pink, then it will have been all worth it.
We had a simple dream of building a nice home for my parents, it was reasonable and was approved by all the necessary government agencies. The system is WRONG to allow one single person to complain and delay and squeeze us from our right to build.
I feel like a kid again. We own too much for any education grants or loans, yet we do not have two pennies to spare. Our government is just so funny. They expect me to sell my truck so that I can pay for my education. But then there is a small matter of getting to college which I live too close to get the pittance $500 per semester distance grant. I guess I need to walk the 125 KLM a day in the dead of our winter.
One department does not care about all the money the department has stolen from us (bla bla bla bla).........
So "Daddy" is footing the college bill. I just sold a bunch of our sledding stuff to pay for my books and parking pass. Now I have to figure out how I will pay for my gas to drive back and forth an hour away. But where there is a will there is a way!
And 2010 for me, if nothing else will be BETTER than 2009 and the last five years of my life - it has to be!!! I just have had enough of spinning this same record!
I have faced so many changes and adversity over these last years, I just want some direction, something concrete and worthwhile in my life. So this is it my new focus.
Now if I can just make it through the day without falling asleep in the afternoons. Ha I will have to go to bed at 8:00pm for sure and get myself a reliable alarm clock
