I'm fairly certain that he followed you "up" the road. Both ways.

JG,
Glad to hear it went that well.

I'm sitting down with my mom on Friday to get her "vulture-proofed" and I can hardly sleep at night. *Just have this image of being a Zebra with a pack of hyenas surrounding me.

So far so good. Even my brother is very accepting. Maybe that's because
I am doing all the work. Hmmmm?

Re: Us vs. parents - obvious differences

JG,
My 5 year younger brother has done a yeoman's effort to help this impending explosion, he deserves credit but will also be the focus if anything goes wrong..

So, I'm mainly the (returning, non-caring, non-prodigal son) aka, money (carpet) bag (ger).
Goals:
1. Pay off parent home. (Keep lien to avoid sibling theft) In brother's name not mine.
2. Buy new car, last probable. (Keep lien to avoid sibling theft) In brothers name not mide.
3. Help with Will that evenly divides with options for declining your share.
4. Upgrade kitchen, baths, heating, exterior to insure no future expenses.
5. Set up small direct debit account that covers all, heat, AC, elect, gas, taxes, etc.

That's where I'm headed, any pointers or experience will be as songs from the sirens.

Money bag's only, brother the defender. Sheeew. Lucky mje.

I hate having to do it all, but it would be even worse to sit on the sidelines
while my brother stuck his fork in the pile. I would be nervous as a whore
in church. Anyway, he seems fine with it and so do my folks, so I guess
I am the go-to guy for the time being.

Re: Us vs. parents - obvious differences

OAP, do you mean that the home and car will be in your brother's name or the lien will be in your brother's name? I see gift issues.
