You'll recall from a post several years ago I was also a vicitm in the 90s of one of Mr. Lapre's little scams - I was just sure I too could hit it big using his simple program of 'Tiny Classified Ads.' The sad part was once I received the box of crap I bought I relaized actual work was involved and quickly lost interest.
An even better story comes out of the great State of Florida. A couple paid cash for a home that had been forclosed on by the evil Bank of America. After finally getting settled in the Sherrifs office showed up one day to advise them they were being evicted from their home due to a forclosure.
Attempts to reason with BOA and even try to show the local nit wits at the Bank a copy of the their deed, canceled check and title insurance went no where. The couple's laywer eventually got a judge to rule in the couples favor certifying that the Bank indeed made an error and in fact owed the couple $2500 in legal fees.
Of course Bank of America scoffed at the idea that they made an error and refused to pay. Left with no choice the ever so eagar lawyer got himself a seizure of assets order and showed up to a local Bank of America branch with a moving van, a crew of guys to help and several hand carts. With great flare and drama they burst into the local branch and inform the local Manager of their intent to sieze items like phones, chairs and desks in an effort to make the couple whole.
It took one hour for a check reimbursing all expenses and a letter of appology to be presented to the couple - I love this story, I'm not a big fan of big banks but in my opinion Bank of America is the worst - finally a score for the little guy.
My wee one is stiring - I gotta go!

Some of my favorite people:
Mildred Jernigan McComber’s family – Steve, Amy, Matt, Linda (MiMi), Doyce (PopPop), Aunt Cheryl, Becky, Jon, Shannon, Randi, Kenley, GiGi (Mildred), Allie, Angie, David, Claire, Analise, Evan and Keaton (Adam had to work and didn’t come until later in the day. Bobby, Kari and Marq were unable to attend.)
On Sunday morning, we had church outdoors by the pond.
Our reunion was a three-day event, beginning Friday afternoon and lasting until Sunday afternoon. We had a lot of events. I spent most of my time enjoying my cousins, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, nieces, parents, grandma, husband and daughter. As a result, I didn’t take very many pictures. It was a great event, and I loved spending time with my wonderful family. I can’t wait until we get together again!

Steve, Claire and I went with Aunt Shannon and Allie to watch Aunt Shannon ride her horse today. Claire got to ride Bullet, and she helped to give him a bath and walked him back to his stall. Here are some pictures.
Claire loved the “horsies.” We had a great time today!
