After dealing with some of my RW "friends" I can explain this to all of you..........most of my RW "friends" only call me when they need something. And it always involves me spending money in some form or another. Either they want money, can't afford food (for kids or dogs), just got evicted and want to stay with me, need a babysitter, need a ride, the list goes on forever. And before you jump on my because those are the types of things friends do for each other; let me tell you that these are the ONLY times these "friends" call me. They NEVER call me to hang out, or go out with them ( unless they need a DD) If any of these "friends" ever called my and said "Just thinking about you, how are you?" I would probably have a heart attack.

So, the two go hand in hand. A recluse with no mooching friends, has a lot more money!

His attorney was such a caring chap I'm sure. Hope he left it to the other guy "checking" in on him. Or even perhaps a charity. Sorry if I feel that an attorney had ulterior motives.

All that money, and cut his own firewood, and got by just dandy without all the stupid crap that most of us just think we need any more.
