Meow... Huh

Good Afternoon,
We have 3 cats that terrorize our home when they get playful; things disappear and later reappear. Yesterday as I was putting my shoes in the bedroom, there on the floor was this black cube. I picked it up a wondered as to where it had come. it was soft and spongy with sticky on the top. When my shoes were on I went and asked mom where this came from?
This morning as I was putting on my flip flops I saw this white foot attachment on the floor?
I know that the cat’s pick-up things and move them around, but it is the first-time objects ended up at my feet.

Good Morning

I was reminded today that I should go out and get a job as if my gross income does not mean anything as it is not my take home pay.

As if life insurance means nothing                     432.72       per month; If I die my wife gets 3 times my yearly salary plus my pension. That sounds like a new SUV to me and all the bills paid off.

 “”     Dental insurance ““                                       69.20       per month
  “”    Federal income tax           ““                       287.65       per month
      Membership Dues                                          6.50        per month
      Health Insurance                                         521.67       per month
          Total                                “                     1317.74       per month                 15,812.88 comes out of check

I pay out of my check each year 15,812.88

I was reminded today that I should go out and get a job as if my gross income does not mean anything as it is not my take home pay.

I earned a pension and that money above come out of my pension. The pension was hard worked for and it comes out of a fund that cannot be touched.  I Know that the federal government uses it as collateral, but it cannot be touched.
If my wife dies first I go bankrupt.

Mother's Day was Nice

We Celebrated Mother's Day quietly. my mother abandon my sister and I or something happened to her that I am not aware of?  I know that losing a sister to a disease was a disaster for my father and mother. My father was away when my sister died and she was at the Mission San Gabriel being taken care of by the nuns but that was too late for my sister. She may have died before my mother came to the mission. It may have been a traumatic ordeal that my mother never got over. 
I have have had some good women as step mother's; Margie, a take no shit and work me to death mom. Gladys a good intelligent working women that made a good choice in marrying my dad for her children. In the meantime Margie got rid of everything pertaining to my father including my real mom's photos (she may not have been aware of what she did). Helen a women my age as my last step mother. My dad had threatened  Gladys and that was it.
Laurel had a good Mother's Day. My daughter had a good mother's Day.
My son called and made Laurel Very Happy.

I was Alive

I was alive, I was heard, just for a moment in time.  
I can start my journey in 1616 and end it in 2018.
He started two days ago and ended this afternoon.
In both situations the mark was placed on the wall of time.

A Prius

Good Evening,
Laurel's Chrysler Town and Country van died. It parked itself and we went looking for another Chrysler Town and Country. Whoa! Those Town and Country Vans are way beyond our means. 
So I asked Laurel to look at a Prius. I enjoyed riding in the Prius but  knew nothing about the technology. When we looked at a Prius the first one we saw looked brand new but it was three years old. We took a ride and Laurel was sold. So we bought it.

A hard Vacuum

Good Morning,
The ports were clogged on my new mower, the young man from the dealer choked it very hard ( he pulled the air filter out and placed his hand over the carburetor and I tried to start it (two people) and that cleared the ports).

New Mower - Old Mower

Good Morning,
I mowed yesterday until my hands got cold as it was 50 degrees out there in the yard. I had to stop. I will mow more today and pick up some grass clippings as there is huge piles of clippings out there right now. I had to use my old mower as my new mower has to go to the shop and get it tuned up. It would not start for me.

Lawn Sweeper Fix

I bought some denim from the yard goods store and I am going to cover the areas where the lawn sweeper has come off the frame
