Paul and the Invoice

Now Paul Doolittle inherited or more likely talked his siblings out of selling the family farm for fun and profit. If he hadn’t he wouldn’t have a place to live qnd work. And what work it is! Paul has this thing going at the family farm, where he’s turned the farm into a commune or retreat under the name Sunpoint Farm and Sanctuary. Now this is a good fit for Paul since he’s got a skill set, a way of presenting himself that makes you want to believe what he’s telling you, to trust him at face value. You could say Paul’s a confidence man.
Paul’s been going around talking in his smooth inspiring way about me, Art Joly and telling people all the things I could have done all the things I should have done all the things I didn’t do and that I Art am the reason Lynn lost his Challenger. This is a good move on Paul’s part because it turns attention away from what really happened. Lynn didn’t lose his beloved car, a once in a lifetime find that he worked hard to hold onto. No Lynn had his Challenger stolen from him by Paul Doolittle. Paul removed Lynn’s 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible from Lynn’s possession and tormented Lynn psychologically with his finely honed skills until Lynn signed a Bill of Sale rather than see his beloved car go to the crusher or be parted out. Lynn’s car wasn’t found in a barn: it was placed there by Paul Doolittle so Lynn wouldn’t know where it is. this whole farce could have been stopped right then and there but Paul, ever the confidence man convinced the Derry, NH police department that this was a civil matter and the Derry, NH police refused to take a stolen car report.
Now the title has the work invoice in it. After Paul got his invoice, a piece of paper that is only worth the price of the ink on it because it was obtained under duress, Paul Doolittle announced that now he was going to collect some real money. See Paul needed the money to keep his farm running something I knew so I asked him how he paid for his new well and he said “Nick gave me some money pending the sale of the Challenger (to Nick).”
So Lynn wants nothing to do with the money but as my friends used to say, I’m the practical one and I go to the meeting where I’m presented with an invoice for services rendered for Lynn to sign. Paul’s ginned up an invoice for his services through this whole thing that would have done JP Morgan Chase proud! Well, what little that was left over Lynn refused and i did too until November came around and it was getting cold living in the tent.
When Paul Doolittle tell you that he gave Lynn the money from Lynn’s car think about what Paul’s saying because it ain’t exactly the truth. Lynn still owns his Challenger and he wants the car back! Beating somebody be it physically or psychologically makes that signature invalid and the Lynn’s Challenger, 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible
440 Six-Pack, Four speed
V.I.N. JS27V0B100421 is a stolen car! Mancini has no right to touch that car other than to return it to Lynn Shackelford.

About Art

55 years old. By training, ability and experience I am a master toolmaker. My most recent projects include designing and building a process to grind a G rotor pump shaft with four diameters and holding all four diameters within plus or minus 4 microns of nominal. This was an automated process using two centerless grinders refitted to my specifications using automatic load and unload machines plus automatic feedback gauging. I also designed and built an inspection machine to check for the presence and size of a straight knurl on a hinge pin using a vision system for non-contact gauging.
