I miss our Wood Stove
This woman used my good name for her ill-gotten gains.
The City Councilor turned to me and said, we here are looking for peaceful solutions. Or something along those lines, he was suggesting I was guilty of all she said of me, as he was eyeing my wife up and down. I mentioned to City Council earlier, nothing of what that woman is accusing me of is true. It was some time before I understood what she was up to.
Superior Court did not find me guilty of any of the accusations she made of me and my family. Because of my impoverished position, I gave into her demand for me and my family not to have a wood burning stove in our home.
In Superior Court She claimed to have health issues, blaming the smoke from my wood burning stove causing her ill health. It was found in Superior Court that she was barbecuing in her home at the time of the grate blackout with a charcoal barbecue that filled the house with thick black smoke and setting the smoke detectors off. At that time, a day before she barbecued in her home, I offered her the use of our gas stove for her coking, she declined the offer.
Her home was full of smoke and she almost set the home on fire trying to remove the fire hot barbecue.
My family watched her as she barely made it out of the smoke blowing house.
She is now residing in her home while her home is under major renovations.
Walls, floors and ceilings are being torn out, thick construction dust engulfs the home.
Yet she lives there. There was no good reason for my decision to opt out of having a wood burning stove in our home, other than pleasing this woman so that she would stop her false allegations of me and my family.
My family of five resides in our family home with two members disabled and two tenants reside in a basement apartment, we all went without heat for four days in the coldest days of this winter, because of a furnace breakdown.
Our home is not built to today's standards, it has no insulation except for in the attic which is inadequately insulated, there is some insulation in the basement where the tenants reside. The main floor where my family resides is never worm with the furnace running at an affordable rate.
Our stove is greatly missed it was our only source of getting truly worm.
