I had to be creative, and the greatest thing is that my sister printed it and put it in her husband’s “Bills to Pay” folder.  I think I’ll buy a new car with the money!  Porsche anyone?

  1. Since the majority was “dog neglect”….I think Lane deserves to have a say….maybe she will grace them with her presence while you are out of town sometime….so they can work off their debt to you! hahaha….
