Here's the situation: He currently lives in Colorado. The Texas house is the one he bought, shortly after his wife died & then quickly moved into with his now ex-girlfriend.....The ex his claiming that she is entitled to 1/2 of the property's value, since she was his common law wife for the last 10+ years.....his 2 daughters are laying a claim to the house, because they're crazy / greedy bitches. My Uncle's son is fighting off all of dem bitches....and saying that the house belongs to my Uncle......Period.
I really could not care less what happens, yet I had to listen to Mama recreate the entire phone conversation she had with my Uncle, including all of the voices of all of the characters in this sad, sad drama...I did get a chuckle when Mama imitated my Uncle's voice....(he sounds very much like John Wayne....and looks like Caesar Romero), I literally laughed out loud as my Mom said (in Uncle's voice): "that low life, bleach blonde, Wetback isn't getting one red cent from me!"........you had to hear it to hear the funny!
It's a shame how so many of my relatives no longer speak to one another, due to some petty argument...Back in the Golden Days of my youth, when the terms "401k Plan" & "Life Insurance" were as foreign to me as the term "Bukakke" was, my parents were notorious for throwing festive dinner parties or BBQs, which most of my 7 Uncles, 6 Aunts, their spouses & many cousins attended (all on my Mother's side)...
- Side Note #1: My maternal Grandmother had a total of 17 children....a set of twins died at birth & one son was killed in a car accident when he was very young.
- Side Note #2: I have never met any of my Dad's family, as they disowned him when he & Mama eloped in Vegas.
- Side Note #3: both of my parents grew up on farms, hence, the need for free labor.
I'm thinking that it's time for the next generation to step up & recreate some of those fun, happy times....I think I'll call up my brothers tonight & invite them over for dinner this weekend....it's a start, right?
