So half of the money ($5,000) held in escrow to insure that the horses are removed would be their money. So that part of the move is his business. The real estate agent represented both parties in this deal. And he is absolutely an up front honest man. He said that he is working with them to find a place. He is a good man for the job. The problem much of which is in my mind comes from comments she has made. The living in a camp trailer in the driveway simply isn't going to happen. The horses will be gone. If they need to leave a load or two until the next weekend, well there will be room in the barn. If they needed me to haul a load or two, I would help out where I can. But they accepted our offer back in early February. They have had plenty of time to come up with a plan. I guess that is what is getting to me. Talking to them they don't even have a plan.


I knew he was an adult. I had read the whole thread and for some reason it flew right over my head that he was involved with the sale. My point was that, had he not been involved in the sale, that it wasn't really his business. However, it is his business. They have had more than enough time to come up with a plan, sounds like they are delusional. This is one of those situations where it's "I'm glad I'm not in your shoes." This a raw deal. Sorry, man.


That is why I plan to talk to him. He is involved financially yet as a son in law and thus he is a step back. Also as the under sheriff he understands the legal end of things. I want to give them plenty of time to get it all together but not wait until the last minute. That is why I said June 10. The horses are supposed to be gone by June 15 (Friday). If they are still there June 18 (Monday), their $5,000 is mine. I don't want their money. They have 6 weeks today to be out. Maybe this concern is all in my mind. But with all the money I paid for that place I want to move in without any trouble.

Already looked into it and planning for it. The county dump is about 20 miles away. I have looked into getting a dump trailer from the rental place. I figure with a loader tractor and a dump trailer it wont take too long. The question left to be seen is can I do it in one day or will it take more.

More.

Without going into the gory details, we moved or farm twice within six weeks this time last year.

It always takes more.

Time, money, effort, patience, etc...

I was down to the ranch today. Happy to report that progress was being made. Garbage being hauled off. Things looking better. Less horses than before. They were meeting with the brand inspector today because more of them leaving. Their daughter and SIL closed on a place in town which is clearing out their big storage unit so Mom and Dad can put their stuff their. Things are looking up.

On the other hand I stopped at the DMV to find out what it is going to cost register our vehicles in Oregon. OUCH..... Oh well it is only money. I just wish I had more of it about now.

Well the horses are all gone. I had to go down and sign a paper so the sellers could get their money from escrow. I thought I would be meeting the realtor to sign but he called shortly after I left home. He also has a ranch and had to spend the day riding in the mountains. He said that he would leave the paper with the sellers. I knew the sellers would be gone so we arranged for him to leave it in the shop for me to find. So about 3 hours later I was driving through La Grande (about 60-70 miles from Durkee) and he called me. He had left the paper but wanted to warn me about the dogs. Seems the sellers two dogs were biting his tires as he pulled in and as he left. He had to arm himself with a pitchfork to get into and out of the shop. I picked up an old 2x4 along the road. I pulled up right close to the shop door. One step from the car door to the shop door. I was glad I had the 2x4. Dogs bit my tires too. I was going to check out some other things while I was there but decided against it. I won't go back now until I begin moving in on the 25th. I hope they don't leave those dogs...... well maybe not. I know what would happen if they did leave them.

As long as those dogs stay on their own property..here, we have free agents.apparently it belongs to the whole neighborhood...

I poked around in the shop while I was in there. It was emptied out. Not cleaned up. Judging from the amount of mouse droppings they could have used a few less dogs and maybe a cat or two. There is a pretty fair snake population there. A few less mice and maybe there won't be as many snakes attracted.
