No he isnt back...thank heavens. However whatever goes on in his life ends up impacting us. He has this so called "girl friend" that is living in SC at the moment. He met her according to him at church but I have my serious doubts about that because she is on probation in three counties in NC for crimes stemming from stealing doctor's RX's pads, forging prescriptions and something to do with narcotics. Why am I not surprised he is hooked up with her? She is supposedly living in a sober house in SC and he says she is doing so wonderfully she is running it. Of course he also told us that she wasnt convicted of anything here and wasnt on probation at all. We didnt find out about the probation until 2 weeks ago when she had to come down here and Buck called us in a panic thinking she was going to jail. Supposedly she was here because her father went into a coma but it was at the exact same time she had to be here for a probation meeting. Gosh I love when people have family members that conveniently get sick so they can leave a place they are supposed to be so they can come to their court date but dont have to tell anyone that they are coming to court and make out that its a sick relative. Meanwhile Buck went and picked her up! Now somehow this girl is gonna move down her. Supposedly her father really is sick or they are scamming someone because they have managed to get her approved to get paid to take care of him. I have no clue why they would pay a convict to take care of him or even why they would pay a daughter. I assume the man probably is either old enough for medicare or will now have medicaid but the medicaid is a bit iffy to me because the mother of this girl supposedly used to work with me at Social Services and if she did, or still does, they would be over income for medicaid. Even if she has retired and she is on retirement, if he is getting social security and she is getting retirement, they would be over income for medicaid. I dont see how they are getting this paid. Someone told me about some program that might pay for someone to take care of a disabled person and I called everyone I could think of to see if I could get someone paid to come in for even a few hours to help me and I was told that unless I needed CNA care and the person was a CNA, then it couldnt be done. I dont think this woman is a CNA. I keep saying girl but she is about 40. And to make matters even worse I have found out two more interesting tidbits. One is that Buck has let his insurance laps on his car which means that his tags have gone dead. He will not be able to get his tags back until he goes to a meeting at the license bureau and then pays a fine and gets new insurance. This was so stupid considering his insurance was only $45 a month and he makes $13 an hour for at least 40 hours a week and his bills are next to nothing. $115 a week for rent, car insurance of $45, cable of $40, $50 cell phone and his food. I am sure he is buying things we dont know about and sending her money. He certainly doesnt buy clothes. He was getting food stamps but that leads me into number two of what I found out. He has been caught not reporting working or any of the changes he was supposed to report. He got a letter telling him to get a wage form completed and a form completed saying where he lived from his landlord and he refused to send the information back to them so they closed his case effective the end of September. It will be interesting to see how he handles this. I told him to report those changes. I dont think Buck knows yet about his car tags. Billy accidentally opened the letter thinking it was his because it came addressed to William XXXXX. They have the same first name. Why Buck still has his mail coming here I dont know. I have told him to change his address about a hundred times. Anyway, Billy just opened it thinking it was for him and was freaking out when the thing said "Your insurance is cancelled" but then we went back and read the entire thing and realized it was Buck and not Billy. Buck hadnt paid his insurance from July 15 - Aug 15 and the thing cutoff 9/4. They had given him until 8/31 to get a payment in but as of 9/4 it went completely dead. The letter came to the house on 9/10 telling him that he could renew the policy when his suspension period was over. LOL. I did look up his criminal record online and found out he has a nice one. He has been convicted of several things including distribution of narcotics. Yeah, he and his girlfriend are made for each other. Sober my right arm.
