Landowners? - almost...

OK - so today was our closing on the land purchase. Dean & I arrived at the lawyer's office at our appointed time, with bank check in hand to learn that the seller's lawyer (who holds his power of attorney and would be signing for him) was not going to be making it today...WTF!!?! I thought all of the parties involved were supposed to be at these closings...

So, we did all our signing, and paid the purchase price. Tomorrow - the seller's lawyer will do her part of the signing and then later in the day, the deed will be filed with the registry and finally it will be official.

But that's not all...

Later this evening, we got some more disappointing news: The backhoe that Dean had made a verbal contract to purchase - and had just had a bank check cut for - and had arranged a pick-up for, etc - has been sold. The guy who is selling phoned to say that someone paid him cash just today and so it is sold. So much for verbal contracts... Bummer!
