I Lovia de Haviland

Yesterday I went to say goodbye to a friend's home which is in foreclosure. Just another ridiculously over-zealous lender letting her yank equity from her home...except in this case, the equity was so large she ended up with a $14,000 mortgage payment a month! Imagine that! And her only income is social security of about 800 a month. $14,000 per month. That is about twice what my income was for the ENTIRE YEAR last year. (Yeah, I told you I was po!)

She'd like to blame the bank, I'd like her to place the blame squarely on her own shoulders but it's never going to happen...but that's all in the past now!

Everything she's ever owned is being sold out from underneath her.

Including this set of Haviland:

Which is priced to sell at $2,500. I would like to buy it but doing a quick mathematical configuration I see that is$2,495.00 over my budget.

Seeing her once cluttered home practically gutted and bare

made me want to run home and hug my own china.
