The part time job of delivering mortgage delinquency letters I’ve written about in a previous blog has some interesting twists and turns.
Recently I was able to help a couple sort out an administrative nightmare. Seems their mortgage has been sold twice within a month and now they are getting dunned by two different companies. The couple is totally frustrated. They have the money to bring their account up to date; they just don’t know who to pay and are sitting on the money until they clearly know who holds the mortgage. I don’t blame them.
My youngest son, 100% disabled Army vet, still has kids to raise with all that implies including braces for growing teeth. I suggested he consider doing what I am doing. Long story short, my employer has signed him up and are giving him a ton of work.
I’m grateful. He is a worker, always has been from his early teens, and cannot work a regular job. He has days when he has mobility issues. The job allows him to work his own schedule, within reason, and on his good days he gets a lot done. I hear a much better tone of voice when we talk on the cell, more upbeat, without the undertone of depression. He is so damn tough it breaks my heart when I know he is struggling.
I may abandon the COLOEXIT plan. A tax credit scheme 62+ senior complex is near completion in my town. I’m 98% accepted. The anti government part of me is screaming, “You hypocrite”, for becoming involved in a semi-socialist scheme. Another part of me says, “Son, you have been, and continue to this day, paying income taxes for 61 years. Time you got some back”.
(The husband of the recently defeated Senator from MO has profited greatly selling these tax credits.)
All residents of the 200 unit complex are over 62. The majority are women. I’m single. Possibilities????
If this doesn’t work out, the COLOEXIT plan can be restarted.
Looking forward, those I care about have their health, jobs, and a roof over their head. Can’t ask for more.
Here is wishing all reader a happy and prosperous 2019.
