Big Wheels

My mother and I took my father's truck to a local independent dealer this afternoon. I had already looked up the value on Kelly's Blue Book just to get a ballpark figure. It went smoothly and my mother had a connection with the owner. She had taken care of his mother in law when she worked at Hospice. I was concerned that a V-8 gas guzzler that is 6 years old would be hard to get rid of, I think she received a fair price for the truck. More importantly she believes she did.  Overall, for something both of us had dreaded, it was pleasant and quickly over. So one more item off the to-do list.

The small house my grandmother left my father should be wrapping up in another couple of weeks. Just waiting on the lawyer to finalize all the paperwork before the money can be dispersed. She is looking forward to that.

The current listing agent's contract for my parent's  old place is up at the end of the month. She already has a new one lined up to replace him. Hopefully, this one will actually do something to get it sold quickly.

Things are moving forward, albeit, at a snail's pace. But still moving. Now if I can find a better job.....

movement is inevitable so I hope it is at least good and/or exciting.
