How We Found Our Real Estate Lawyer (County Route 20)

A few weeks ago  we were looking for a real estate lawyer

some people gave us names of people they said were

difficult expensive sometimes both

I was wearing a favorite linen dress  when we stopped

into Hannafords buying food for dinner.

Back of my dress underslip included   bunched into

my body.  In other words, this was not good

kind woman walked over  I was choosing leeks to say

she’d walked all around Rome one whole day  the back of her dress

like mine.She fixed my dress  I asked

after thank you  if she knew a real estate lawyer

she said for 37 years she sold real estate

she’d give us the number of the person

she liked the most.

We  went there today and when

I called her after to say thank you

she said don’t forget to always check behind.
