So..... the saga continues. Banker A has called us in THREE MORE TIMES to sign papers. Meanwhile, Banker B (the good banker) has told us that the reason everything is SO SLOW is that a lot of the banks here in Maine closed due to the weather, their systems were down, they were working by the light of their cell phones (???) and that their main loan person broke her ankle very badly on the ice.
BUT! He e-mailed me to say he hopes today is the day. If so, we have a roof to order they will start cutting the timbers, and we will get the stuff to build the dock. It is very big: 12' by 72', and hangs out over the pond, and we need to build it in order to work on the house itself.
Meanwhile, I have gotten all the taxes done (YEAH): first time I have finished them before August in my life.
