His checkbook has been mysteriously absent from its prominent place on his desk. I riffled around until I found it hidden under some stuff. His balance as of 10/31 is just over $3,600. The last entry says simply “DIV.” So he still has some investments out there that are paying dividends? After telling me that he is totally broke and will be living under a bridge unless he can find someone to buy this house on contract to give him an income? WTF?
