Unfortunately, I only received a couple of hundred bucks of my own money back and it went to pay for AC service on our rental property. I guess that makes it a write off for next year.

Lottery tickets. I figure I'll win enough to afford to go to Vegas.

Then the sky's the limit.

I share the same plan. I'm planning on putting it all on 00. I'm quite sure that I can't lose.

Right side exhaust manifold for the old Chevy and new brake lines! If not that, it would have gone for a myriad of other expenses.

Talking Stimulus check

We used our check to purchase our 1974 Argosy 26. We got a steal at $1800!! But I think it's going to cost 100 x's that to get it ready. We are stripping the paint, recovering the cushions, making new curtains, I think the heater needs a new part, the fridge might not work, on and on and on. But it's worth it because my husband and I have a project to work on together!!! Best investment so far!!
But, ask me again in 6 months

The $$$ helped to make this possible. A Bambi facelift, 2 shiny new front wraps and a rock guard.

I've raised my youngest Daughter alone since she was 11 and she's leaving for college this year. So I'm springing for a session with professional photographer (Tomorrow) before she leave's the nest.

With no more direct responsibilities at home I'll be spending more time in the AS keeping the Flamingos company.

Since I had to pay about $3k to the government, and I haven't gotten my $600.00 check, I guess I have time to think about what I'll do with all the money. Six tanks of gas?????? Oh boy.

Put it all in my wife's account so it would not burn a hole in my pocket. This way it will be there when I need to pay school taxes this fall.
