Sadly they already had a plan to neutralize me, and I never saw it coming.  The people in this conspiracy include family members, people who my mom and I treated like family members (and had trusted), bankers, lawyers, police and at least one judge.  Plans were made behind my back, with relatives flying in without my knowledge.  I know enough to believe that I probably know only a small part of the story.

My mother's money was the target, and I was the fall-guy.  I have some evidence of a conspiracy, but coming from me it's useless.  I'll never see justice done for this in this world.  But I do have a few small items that I rescued in the toughest 1/2 hour of my life that I'm rationing to last as long as Mom lives, to give her a smile and good memories.
 
That sucks and I feel your angst as a family member did a similar thing to me when my Mom was dying of cancer. Even though I was to be the executor of the estate behind my back they tried to get my Mom declared incompetent while she was still alive so they could raid what was left of the liquid assets. And I still had to split the money from the sale of her house with them afterwards. They made my Moms last days a lot more of a hell than it already was.

This picture.



The good news is that this infant was rescued before it was too late and is now in good hands. The bad news is that people believe there is a market for baby mountain gorillas and are willing to break laws and jeopardize the fate of a critically endangered species at the chance for profit,”

Finding out that one of my art professors died a year ago at the young age of 69 in a news letter from the art department. Not only was she one of my teachers in many classes, she was also my college advisers that got me on the right track for the new graphics curriculum they had just added. They're having an "In Remembrance" exhibition in the art departments art gallery and silent auction for some of her work and works donated by alumni for a scholarship fund.

Somehow I've got to get my cousin to watch mom for an hour or two so I can connect with some of my old professors and classmates. It sucks being out of touch with life over the past several years.

My mother's home, which was supposed to mine when she died (including the extensive photo, slide and 8mm film library) was sold is some kind of shady deal while she was in the hospital.  I was given 8 hours notice that I'd have no more than 30 minutes to recover as much of my own and my family's property as I could.  By the time I got there the place was looted pretty good already.  I recovered only 3 Bankers Boxes worth of photos out of over 1000 cubic feet of photos had been stored.

Better than losing it all, I suppose.  Every birthday, Mother's Day and Christmas I make a gift out of photos.  Perhaps the greatest gift that I saved was a pair of oil paintings of my mom and dad that used to hang in their bedroom.  At the time she had no photos to remember him by.  The iols now hang in her nursing home room, with the frames still damaged by whoever tore them off the wall and onto the ground, where I found them.  Words can't describe her reaction when I showed them to her.

i bought two external hard drives.   i am thinking of maybe getting space on the internet better, because i had a hard drive die, that is why i have two now, but i am not sure they are all on there and i am afraid to press delete on my computer,  now the sound doesn't work because i have too much on my computer (i think that is the reason, there is no input controls)...

 anyway, do you or anyone have a recommendation for an internet storage?  i was looking at drop box.   i am not happy to have a lifetime monthly bill, and if i have to have one then i'd like it to be as little as need be.  but is that safe, what if they go out of business?

Our photos are all right by the front door, and my in-case-of-fire plan (in my mind) includes throwing (gently) my computers out the window, and grabbing all those photo albums and running out the front door with them.
