I wonder what happened to the woman with the family farmland to divvy up.. hope she's doing ok.

Walt, glad your FIL is accepting of the move. You're really to be commended for taking on all that work.

In case anybody was wondering whether I caved in and spent my "unclaimed property" check for $4460.50, or put it into my nestegg, here's the breakdown:

$1065.72 (24%) was spent on technology (see below)
$596.55 (13%) was spent on my half of our evacuation expenses
$2798.23 (63%) went to my nestegg

Technology acquired included a new Dell desktop computer, a snazzier wireless router to replace the one that broke, and a new color laserjet printer.

LBYM? What's LBYM? Oh well. It was unexpected money so I decided to spend a little.

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.
