A Place For The Future Past

Questions, questions….

Since Thomas the Attorney has not returned Maria’s many phone messages, I decided to take a drive down to Yelm to see the property, fully intending to drive on to Poulsbo to confront Thomas himself to ask what is going on.  Well, what I saw when I got there was disturbing….there was a contractor’s truck parked in the driveway, with an SUV with Idaho plates off to the side, and a pickup with jetskis in the back.  Stacks of mattresses in the garage, with a few other things here and there.  So I went up to the door and knocked….

After a few tries, I saw a sleepy head lift from the floor of the second floor, a young man came down to talk with me…

Apparently he and a buddy were “hired” to stay there and “fix up the place” but he did not know the name of the owner (his buddy was in charge and out of town.  I got his buddy’s number).  All I can say is that while there were ample clues of lots of fun had by them (jetskis. drying shorts hanging on the railing, bags of trash inside) there was nothing done in the way of improvements or remodel completion (as far as I could see.  They had not even completed the porch, plywood was tossed over the gaps).  It looked more like a couple of guys crashing there and storing some stuff.  Deer and moose antlers in the garage, a rolled up elkskin on the kitchen counter, the same dead fly bodies as before still littered much of the inside.  There was one table inside, but it was on its side in the hallway.  Clearly not a legitimate movein by new neighbors. 

So I called Maria to report, and she agreed;  Greg must be alerted.  And more, I would REALLY love to get ahold of JAMES himself — this cannot possibly be what he wanted…..

 Is the attorney planning to finish the remodel then put the place back on the market himself, with a jacked-up price?

Is he planning to move in himself?

Why won’t he talk to anyone of us?
