My Old Broker & Friend, Earl Allen.

Earl AllenIt was fun to see my old Broker and friend, Mr. Earl Allen, on the front page (above the fold) of The Minot Daily News this morning.

I was going to call one of his daughters, Dee Ann Allen to see if she would be up here from FL for Earl's Birthday. I've been out of touch for a couple of years now due to the antics of his evil stepson whom in my opinion absconded with Earl's fortune and stuck Earl in a nursing home.

Earl Open HouseI can't say for sure I will be there being the creepy stepson is a host and the sight of him makes me want to puke BUT I certainly am very happy for Earl and I will celebrate his 99 years on Earth. BTW Earl's daughter Dee Ann was the original Wriggles Doublemint Gum girl and has been and interior designer in NC for many years.

Earl was a Real Estate genius and I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from him. He came to this area from Ankeny Iowa because of ND's first oil boom in the 1950's. Earl also had a law degree but chose to pursue Real Estate over law.

In conclusion I just want to say HAPPY 99th BIRTHDAY Earl!

Yes. I opened a real estate office rather than practicing law...long ago....1961.

I'm sure the knowledge you gained from your legal studies was extremely helpful during your career Roy Kelley . It's one of those things I'd do if I could do it all over again.

Interesting, so why don't you tell us what you really think about his stepson?  He must me a gem, or germ

Hi, Bob!  What a great story and tribute to your friend, Earl.  I hope that he has a wonderful celebration.  (And, I hope you go to spite his evil stepson!)

I'd hate to insult all the germs out there by comparing him to them James Dray .

I should go to at least drop off a card Ron Marshall . It could easily be his last Birthday.
