Recently I’ve been reading several stories where the main character inherits all kinds of cool stuff like houses or businesses from unknown or long lost relatives. I would love for this to happen to me.
Picture this: a long lost, maybe estranged relative would leave me a lovely Victorian house (haunted is ok) with some nice property and a couple of million in a basement vault or maybe the key to a lock box in a bank containing dozens of pieces of priceless jewelry and 1000 shares of Apple in my name.
It could happen.
My dream would be an unknown ancestor in Kent with a title and a castle filled with enough valuables and a large enough estate to support my living there. That would work.
Does anyone know of someone this has really happened to?
I’m just hoping once my hard working husband gets this place ready, it sells with enough of a profit that we will be mostly out of debt. We had someone stop and look at the 5th wheel this morning!! Cross your fingers and pray for a buyer. It is a beautiful, roomy RV with a nice flat screen TV and fireplace!
I found an interesting bookmark while going through boxes in my office. It is from a place called “Piece of Mind Books” on S Buchanan in Edwardsville IL. I have never been there so when I googled it I found it had closed back in 2011. What was interesting was it had been opened and owned by the same person the whole time. The owners had moved at one point to try to salvage the business after a Borders opened nearby and cut into their traffic. The new place then closed thanks to Amazon and the online book market.
This bookmark is for the original location! How cool it that? No clue how I obtained it. Sounds like a story.
