AND, to take care of EVERYTHING I have left to deal with in California (like getting the rest of my belongings – without anyone taking anything else from me – and that the proper people got the serial number for a specific piece of property so I may resolve all issues involving it) and allow any trips there to be SAFE, without troubles and as stress-free as possible. And, that I get hired/showcased by the person I’ve been trying to get answer my messages.
