FUCKING TIME!!! Went to the actual snail mail box this morning, and lo and behold, what did I find? A copy of the letter from my lawyer, that supposedly has been sent to the shithead! Woo Hoo! Doesn't say much - just says you owe, you pay, or you'll be sued. This is all that I asked. Just wanted him to know that I will not lay back and die and fade into obscurity because he wishes it so. As to what happens now? We'll see... but it was the opening salvo, it was what I asked for, so I feel a teensy bit better for the moment.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by with a little bit of themselves to hold me together. It was and will continue to be a source of great comfort. And the beat goes on...!
