“The storyteller’s claim, I believe, is that life has meaning—that the things that happen to people happen not just by accident like leaves being blown off a tree by the wind but that there is order and purpose deep down behind them or inside them and that they are leading us not just anywhere but somewhere. The power of stories is that they are telling us that life adds up somehow, that life itself is like a story… it makes us listen to the storyteller with great intensity because in this way all his stories are about us and because it is always possible that he may give us some clue as to what the meaning of our lives is.” Frederick Buechner

Do the Storm Troopers Evict the Squatters in Part 10 of The Squatters?
It’s a round-up at Rick’s house. A security team is called in, everyone is taken by surprise leaving the squad wondering whose who and what’s what. Everything gets upended. Find out who shows up and what happens in this final chapter of The Squatters.
Helena is healing with a new sunny disposition, Rick is content. Rick wants to square things with Mr. Begay and Helena wants to get back to painting…but the Squatters are prowling the street. And they don’t trust anyone. Don wants to kill Rick, Owen wants to help him.
Just when things seem to settle down, the Squatters move back in to Rick’s house…making Rick worried about blood on his new carpet. The battle to take back the house continues.
Sometimes things seem to spin out of control even when there looks like the possibility of progress.
Helena preps for facial reconstruction, Rick buys his expensive rug and life looks like it’s going according to plan. But is it? Is there a looming personal banking crisis over some big money gone missing? A savvy theft from ATM’s and a credit balance sending signals of “insufficient funds” are just a few of the transgressions unwrapping in Part 8.
What do ancient meditation techniques and guessing a credit card pin number have in common? In part #7, the scale seems to tip towards Rick success, but as all we know, success might not last enough.
Rick can afford now to have Helena’s face repaired and to buy an expensive rug, two items that have potentially equal capacity for beauty. He’s unprepared for the Squatter’s next move.
Homoerotic activity was practiced in many ancient militaristic cultures, especially the Samurai. I helped to balance the exclusive effeminate maternal upbringing a boy knew before he was sent to military school. It substituted strong, life-saving warriors for the bunnies and foxes of childhood folklore. It taught him self-reliance and teamwork, and established the man-to-man communication that was lacked in herertosexual relationships
Rick’s trouble with the squatters and an “out for himself” lawyer take him deeper in the destructive quid pro quo battle. He quickly learns that a dog bite can be more lucrative than a gun shot. Rick puts his financial “smarts” to work and the action moves to a Mojave County casino. Things are reaching their saturation point.
Lasik or Cochlear implants, people are now offered corrections to old disabilities. Some do not want to avail themselves of these new solutions. Grandmaster Yao Xin reveals how he reached his own decision, a valuable guide to others who are considering such procedures.
We all know the dry mouth that comes with fear. We have only to stand up before a group to give a speech in order to find our mouths go dry and our lips stick to our teeth. But fear means more than a dry mouth to a Samurai. There is a secret in spit to the seasoned warrior.
