What a draining day yesterday.
Yesterday was a strange day. It started with an email from my lawyer's office. Asking if any work has begun on my property.
My lawyer was tied up for a week and a half with a different court case.
I updated them and explained that nothing, absolutely nothing has happened since the last email I sent my lawyer.
My lawyer must have called and lit a fire under their arses.
Ten minutes later the new contractor Kieth, was ringing my phone. He was telling me he was on the way to the city to get a permit for the new foundation. I again asked for the updated contract, to make sure I had and agreed to the work that was going to be done. He promised he would hand deliver the contract that day. Told me he wanted to start next week. I told him he needs to do some things before that. Like pull a permit, get MISS dig out to flag the utilities, and have the city engineer grade stake the yard.
My lawyer again emailed me asking to call the city and verify that a permit was pulled.
I called the city at 3:35 pm. The assistant told me that the building inspector was not in for the day. She told me someone stopped by and got the paperwork to file for a permit. That a permit was not granted because the building department wants new drawing of the new foundation. They already have my complete plans on hand, all that has changed is the foundation.
I emailed my lawyer. Yes, the contractor went to the city and got paper work, and NO a permit was not given.
Back to square one.
As of this moment. I still have not received the new contract, and have not had a phone call from the new contractor since yesterday.
I told my lawyer yesterday. It is past time to file a motion for the FULL damages. Over $60,000.00 in damages now. I will email my lawyer again tomorrow.
Just to remind everyone. On April 2nd, 2019 the Judge told them he wants to see shovels in the ground. The judge then pushed back the next court date 1 month, to give them 1 extra month to comply with the agreed settlement. The new court date is May 31st, 2019.
I think the judge is going to be pretty pissed off.
I also keep hearing that they other side wants this lawsuit to be over with quickly, so they can continue their other lawsuit with their insurance company.
That is good for me. They have to pay me off before they can claim damages from their other lawsuit.

I had the radio on, I was drivin'
Trees flew by, me and Del were singin' little Runaway
I was flyin'"
