Kind of a sad day...saw the dark side of family today. I have had so much support and help from my neighbors, who are like family. Plus my son and DIL.
Today Jim's youngest brother showed up . Let's just say he hit the yard like it was Walmart Take It Free day . Then was upset that I had already sold some items he wanted?? What!
No expression of sympathy, no how are you or anything I can do..just prowling and taking.
I fear I may anger some family but this will NOT happen again.

The items taken are not the issue. The attitude they were taken with was inexcusable.
To say I was stunned would be an understatement. Only after seeing this happen for a
while did my brain kick in and say...enough!! This brother has been here like 3 times in all
the years we have been together..and is suffering the loss of his big bro so much that he wants to take anything that belonged to him...WHAT??

I am now not so much angry as I am disappointed . I always have such high hopes for people and the things they are capable of. All too often they disappoint me..but today was more than disappointment . I do not know the words to describe it, English fails me.

I refuse to become bitter or angry. I will not allow them the space in my heart and mind for that to grow. I also will not allow any further "shopping" at our place. Done!

Forgive me for venting..I just had to get it out before it took root.
Tomorrow will be a better day, I have already decided that!

Good nite folks ...may your rest be peaceful and your dreams filled with joy!

PS'..the chicken showed up..it was Goldie 2...Goldie 1 was in the hen house..where 2 was I will never know..but she showed up that is the important thing!

    I am so sorry that this happened Katie. My daughter's philosophy was this:" If they couldn't come to see me when I was sick, they why should they have a part of me to remember me by?" She was a very wise young lady.

    Katie! You should absolutely copy and print this blog and send it to that brother!!!! What terrible, terrible behavior! Now that he has done this others in the family may feel that he can also. Regardless he thinks...that was theft, plain and simple!

    I am appalled Katie, he is lucky I live so far away wheelchair or not .Jim would have been amused from heaven because his little brother would have caught the sharp edge of my military tongue and if that hadn't worked my unarmed combat skills would have taught him manners. Like Dianne said plain and simple that is theft and I don't care what kind of vulture he is he was ignorant.Better days are coming.My garden is in overdrive but I will call you soon !

    So sorry Katie!! Happened the DAY of my Moms funeral!! I was beyond upset, so much so I totally shut down. Normally I'm vocal, but the outright RUDENESS shocked me.

    Hon,,,the overly used term "entitlement" clearly fits.

    Since this person had NO Right,, ,,,likely you won't want to do this, but its stealing = jail. Maybe the picture of him being in there can help.

    Glad little chick made it home.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. The old saying when a family member is gone as my mom would say all the vultures show up. It is sad but true... emoticon
