I have a swell post for you – Owned at Harper Faulkner. If I didn’t know better, I’d think Dad wrote it.
What’s up with medical bills? I’ve had similar incidents. When I lived in Maryland, I received a bill from a lab for $10.00 at least a year later. I knew I didn’t owe it but I finally caved in and paid it.
I look at that stock market and wonder when it will pop. We were talking about it last night.
A very good post — and I loved the video clip. We often sing that around here — another year older and deeper in debt. Heavy sigh. It’s going to be a long spring.
I do declare. My last visit to the hospital was almost two months ago, and we’re still getting bills. Like an old boyfriend, I wish they’d lose my address.
HA! I still was getting bills a year after Mom died – and one of them was for services rendered a month AFTER she died. Shall we all have a little round-table discussion about health care cost, now? 😉
That was a good post – I mean, what’s not to like about old-fashioned values, unless it’s a post about such from somebody named Harper Faulkner? Thriftiness and literary allusions – it’s all good!
And I’m trying very, very hard to make myself put in more hours. I foresee bumpiness on the horizon, oh yes, I do. When the market goes down, it’s going to hit hard. (Old gloom-n-doom exits stage left, looking for that half-bottle of Pinot that’s around here somewhere….)
I know, Judy. So do most people. Dad believed in the pay-as-you-go philosophy. He used to rant about credit cards when they first arrived on the scene. He thought it was the worst idea in the world. He hated the fact that at Sears they would always ask if you wanted to use your Sears card before you paid. He does have a credit card now, but it’s paid off every month. Of course, how much shopping can he do?
Sounds like my Daddy too–he was never in debt his entire life. If he needed farm equipment, he fixed the broken problem and saved up the money until he could get a new one–cash. I have a 15 year old car–still safe and driving great–because–I take care of it!!! I am, however, in debt for a funeral I had to pay for last year–wasn’t my responsibility to pay for it, but…someone had to so I did, so it is my responsibility now.
