I LOVE all the suggestions for the book, movie, TV series! So much fun going on around here sometimes, and no, I didn't have time to pop any corn because I was glued to my front door watching all the 'stuff' happening. I find if you leave for one second, something happens.
So an update. Walked up the street this morning to see what all the sawing and hammering, etc. was and saw NOTHING. Only thing changed was the little plywood piece propped up with a paving brick that had been placed against the door with no knob or lock was missing. The door was as it always has been, no new knob, no lock, nothing. No boarded up, no screws. Weird. Only thing I can think is that they went inside, blocked the door from the inside (caretaker guy told me how it was usually that way) and then went out the back side door and then blocked THAT door with the plywood and screws etc. Can't see back there without being very obvious.
I did see the snake drive by this morning 'checking things out'. I'm sure he has his sons and everyone else patrolling otherwise they would never have known about the hole in the fence behind a shed which couldn't be seen from the street.
They are all still up to no good, and I'm just waiting for the 'other side' to call me or come over and ask about what went on yesterday, and I am going to lie like crazy. I'm practicing now on how to look 'innocent' when I say, "Why no, I didn't see anything happening yesterday, I was shopping most of the day. What happened?"
I'm so tired of all this stupidity. Neither 'side' trusts the other, both sides have an agenda and in all of this, nothing ever really gets done to help the guy in the nursing home who is really not capable of handling his affairs and won't let anyone else do it for him. He always was a private, grouchy old guy who didn't like being bothered.
When we write the 'ending' to this tale, it will probably be that he passes on, with no will, and his relatives (no wife or kids ever) end up either fighting for all his 'hoard' or just deed the entire thing over to the snake who is the most yukky con man I have ever met.
I'm still waiting for a big moving truck to pull up and start unloading the house and garage and sheds. That would be a good opening scene for the TV movie and then we could do a 'flashback' to the beginning of this saga where the ambulance, fire truck, 5 police cars, police dog, and 5 cops with guns drawn were surrounding the house after the caretaker found the old guy lying on the floor (where he had been for 3 days), barricaded inside his house with a shiny chrome 45 caliber gun in his hand threatening to shoot anyone who entered.
Oh, and I'm leaning towards Geena Davis, but she would have to bleach her hair out to blonde for the part.
