"Alton" still owns the building and land which he is trying to sell right now. He lost all the money still owed on the sale of the business and he doesn't want to step back in and resurrect the company so that money's gone, but he has retaken possession of the property and will get something out of that.

We had lunch together after the auction. In Texas anything permanently affixed to the building is considered to be the landlord's property and he had to step in to keep the auctioneer from auctioning off the paper towel dispensers off the walls in the bathrooms! LOL
