Good evening, everyone.
Today was a nice, relaxing day, and I actually managed to get a few things done.

My last day in Panama City. For some reason, my friend Jim whom I'm staying with wants to see the big Trump Tower on the Pacific side of the isthmus. He hates Trump like I do but he has a morbid fascination for all things Trump.
A lot of people do. I think that's part of what gave him the recognition to run for president.
Actually, the opposite could be true. If you've been diligent about paying your debt, doing so can improve your credit score.
That's a good point. I have paid off two of the three cards and I make about three times the minimum payment. Today I contacted Merrill Lynch and told them I want to consolidate all my retirement accounts and maximize my savings for income. Once I do that, I'll use part of it to pay off the last card more quickly, and rent some storage space to start moving things out.
Wow! Evidence of immaculate conception or mitosis?
Okay, at 8:15am you replied to a post that Cayla
made at 8:18am. No wonder the forum crashes! Stop screwing with the timestream!

Upon taking apart the waterfall to clean the filter, we discovered we have a second frog! The 2 were hanging out together. This one appears to be younger than Froggie.
Oh, that's cool. Did you get pictures of them?
Last night was the first night in 14 1/2 years where Max didn't sleep with me. He refused to go up the stairs. His legs are getting worse.
Aw, the poor guy.
Is there any way to help him up the stairs, or is he too awkward?

Which is why I don't use credit cards... not that my credit rating is likely all that good (I don't really know how these things work).
Unfortunately, I had to rely on them the year that I was out of work, and then still when I went back to work-- I started out making about half as much at Blue Cross as I was at BMC.
We're all getting animal mascots!
Except me. I got strange people mascots.

Good thing I live in such a secluded area. I can't count the number of times someone could have walked in and taken everything I own.
I hope there aren't bears or coyotes or something in the area that could move in.

on the highway, we got to a stretch which didnt have l/r turn offs, just one side only ones - so we werre looking for a roundabout or righthand turn to emsworth - missed the lefthand turn to it - went for havant - but ditto - so we planned to go to hayling island - only l missed the turn for that, so we decided we would go to portsmouth instead...
The American term for this is "You can't get there from here."
we parked in an old dockyard place and walked past ships and thru pigeon infested forts along the coast and back - stopping off wherever we fancied - for coffee/toilets at a shopping mall for instance - then to see rose and rock gardens and a d-day 75th anniversary 'do''s final day where we lunched.
That sounds like a wonderful day.
