My Friend Lorraine sent me this, and well all I can say is you go girly….. This gal is my kinda gal, what say you….
She spent the first day packing her belongings
into boxes, crates and suitcases.
On the second day, she had the movers come and
collect her things.
On the third day, she sat down for the last time
at their beautiful dining room table by candle-light, put on some soft

from the bank to purchase a new place …

listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly and
would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for
getting the house back.
Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the
smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the
house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day.
She agreed and within the hour his lawyers
delivered the paperwork.
A week later the man and his girlfriend stood
smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to
