For years my father has had me vow that I will never sell the family farm, that I will keep it after he passes, how it is the only enduring legacy of the last three generations. Well, he just realized his savings account is near zero, so he called to tell me that he is going to sell the farm. He is really excited about how much money he is going to get, and how 'that'll keep me in booze for years!'. Yeah, I kind of figured that's how we would lose the family farm. Don't get me wrong, I have no interest in having it, I'm just shaking my head how a family legacy is far less important than a drink.
