When Double Becomes Single…continued

Last week Sharon discovered Fred and Corrine were taking advantage of the company checkbook and she laid down the law about stealing company money. She had a feeling they would continue on a path and considered how she’d finally get rid of them.

She gathered her pups and drove to the nearby dog park where many pooches small and large ran free. Sharon had to laugh at a fierce Chihuahua barking at her large pets. The owner, a man dressed in a suit, joined her and said, “Come here often?”

“That’s a line from a bar, right?” “Yes it is and I used it a lot in the old days and it worked most of the time.” I never bar hopped because I married young and lost my husband a few months ago and how about you?”  “I’m married to this pipsqueak pet of mine the past few years; her name is Janis Joplin, she can’t sing but man, can she bark in high C; I was divorced a couple of times and I just can’t seem to get it right.”

“Tommy, Gracie, “NO” Sharon’s dogs stopped harassing another canine; they have been in the backyard too long without my attention so I’ll have to bring them here more often.”

The tall stranger smiled and said,”I hope you do; what’s your name, if you don’t mind.”
“I’m Jack Torrance; I sing on Broadway right now in a revival of Chicago and now it’s your turn and remember, I’m just asking for your name.”

Last week Sharon’s son in Copenhagen was very upset to know bad brother and his nasty wife would be taking advantages of his mom, Sharon and warns her to watch the check book and make sure they haven’t been stealing money.

Pleased to see business growing, Sharon opened the checkbook to make sure there weren’t any checks written other than for business, horrified to find large checks were written to cover a breast augmentation, she called Fred and Corrine in for a dressing down. “Money is only for the business and I’ll take your names off the checkbook.”

But mom, you never told us not to use the checkbook and Corrine needed this surgery since it’s something she’s always wanted.” Oh Fred, we are a small company and your Dad and I worked many years to build this company and we never wasted money.”

Corrine said, ” But you have lots of money set aside from insurance.

“Corrine, any money I have is my business so keep your eyes straight ahead and save money for your future and furthermore, I want you to pay back every month for taking money that doesn’t belong to you.”

Two cross people left when they saw snow falling and Sharon felt relief to be alone. She opened the checkbook to examine carefully in case they had taken any more when she wasn’t looking. Sure enough, her son and wife just put a downpayment for a fancy Ford;  and she called to the Ford boss, Lenny Goldberg. He said, “Hi Sharon is there a problem; if so tell me and I’ll fix it.” Sharon said, “I want you to drive to my son’s apartment and take the car back because he cannot afford it.” I’ll have my men get over there right now.”

Sharon held her breath before telling Jeff the latest arrangements or rather a version of what’s going on. “Since it’s impossible to continue working the company with just me alone, your brother and his wife offered to help out with Corrine doing measurements and Jeff can develop business in New Jersey while I continue with our old customers in this area.”

Jeff turned into a storm cloud and said,”I knew it, the minute I turned my back he jumped in to see if he can become a partner  but don’t let him because he’s a snake so beware and watch the company checkbook and after a while notice he’s written a check for an item that has nothing to do  with business. Did you get the insurance money?

“Yes I did and it’s safe with an investment company and the man next door saved me from a bad fall and now he’s plowing the driveway.”

“Mom, beware of new men in your life and remember you don’t really know anyone” Their connection broke and Inge walked in to ask if everything was okay. He reached for his wife and said, “Just hold me tight because Mom has my brother in the business and now a guy next door is making eyes at her and right now I’m too tired to think; it’s like having a teenager to watch over.” “We will have to persuade her to move in with us before she gets in trouble, all she heard was the gentle snore of sleep from her troubled husband.”

Having a perfect day with son Paul and daughter Eva.DSC_4088.JPG

My kids and best pals came for a short visit from their home in Copenhagen and they had a plan. They surprised this mom with a glorious bunch of hours loving the beauty of mountains, oak trees plus so many more trees everywhere. A cornucopia of nature, breathtaking everywhere we went. Topped off with a special dining room and delicious food.

As for this happy mom, a day to remember. Come back soon, my treasures. Times a wastin’ GungaDin.

Last week Fred didn’t know how to measure and Sharon said: “learn to measure or else I’ll sell my business.

Sharon’s body felt limp like a Raggedy Ann doll with so much to accomplish. Her dear son so far away with a business to run, a wife and young children to care for. As for me, she thought, I only have me and I don’t even drive at night. Her inner self-said, “So do it, you ninny, you’re fifty-six, old enough.”

She decided to look in the mirror; self-assessment, skin good inherited from mother, maybe go for facials every month, walk on the treadmill, ride the bike to nowhere and by spring she’d be stronger. Barry’s still gone but there’s nothing to be done about that.

Just when she’d given up on Fred, he knocked on the door, Corrine by his side. “I should have a key, Mother, what if something happened to you…She stopped him from rattling on; she said, “I have an emergency for help ever since the hip replacement surgery and there’s always 911; come in, the dogs are in the yard.

“Mom, Corrine took shop in school and my idea is that Corrine becomes part of the company and she’ll be the measuring guy and you and I will see, uh, clients.
