Well, the regular work week is back at Hubby’s job.  He has to leave much earlier in the morning, and overtime hasn’t started, so he’ll be home much earlier, for a while.  Gives us both time to adapt.

As a rule, we never keep much cash around.  All of our check are direct deposit, and we have credit cards, so we only withdraw cash when we need it.  Hubby pulled out some paper money yesterday, mostly singles, single on top, and someone commented “Must be a Jewish bankroll.  Well, I don’t know these expressions because I wouldn’t spend time with people who would use them, but it sure sounded to me like she was saying Jews are cheap, phoney, and braggarts.  Am I wrong?  I hope it’s just me being a bit paranoid, but I think not.  I get so angry at any religious, racial, or appearance slurs.

This is Hubby’s last week of working 2 days a week, till next summer.  I was going crazy with him home so much, at first, but now I’m going to miss being able to go out practically whenever I want.  (Due to poor vision, I don’t drive)  Kind of bittersweet.

We got tickets for Octoberfest (10/6) at the clubhouse here.  Apparently we are at the last table.  Seems like people line up to get tickets to these events in the wee hours, and they don’t start selling them till 10 am.  They’re sold out by 10:30.  Us old folk do love to party.  I’ll be having Sauerbraten and Hubby will have Cornish Game Hen.  I don’t like beer, which I assume will be served, so Hubby will get doubles.  Perhaps I’ll keep a can of Pepsi in my purse.  Now, what to wear????

We’ve seen many of these, but I like this one.

21 Things to Remember
ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
THREE. Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
FOUR. When you say, ‘I love you,’ mean it.
FIVE. When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye.
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

NINE… Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.
TEN.. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
ELEVEN.
Don’t judge people by their relatives.
TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’
FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
FIFTEEN. Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze.
SIXTEEN. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.
EIGHTEEN. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
NINETEEN. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice
TWENTY- ONE. Spend some time alone.

Since Hubby just got his first Social Security payment, this hit a nerve.  I got it in an email, and haven’t verified anything, but the principle is there.

SOCIAL   SECURITY NOW CALLED   ‘FEDERAL   BENEFIT PAYMENT’/ENTITLEMENT!
Have you noticed , your Social Security check is   now referred to as a   “Federal   Benefit Payment”?
I’ll be part of the one percent to forward this.
I am   forwarding it because it touches a nerve in me, and I hope it will in you.
Please   keep passing it on until everyone in our country has read it.
 
The   government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a “Federal   Benefit Payment.”;
This isn’t a benefit – its   earned income!
Not   only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too.
It   totaled 15% of our income before taxes.
If you   averaged $30K per year over your working life, that’s close to $180,000   invested in Social Security.
If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social   security ($375/month,
including   both you and your employer’s contributions) at a meager 1% interest   rate compounded monthly,
after   40 years of working you’d have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved!   This is your personal investment .
Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive   $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month .
That’s   almost   three times more   than today’s   average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month,
according   to the Social Security Administration (Google it – it’s a fact).
And   your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you’re 98 if you retire   at age 65)!
I   can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in   retirement if
our   government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.
 
Instead,   the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did.
They   took our money and used it elsewhere. They “forgot” that it was   OUR   money they were   taking.
They   didn’t have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to   them.
And   they didn’t pay interest on the debt they assumed.
And   recently, they’ve told us that the money won’t support us for   very much longer.
But   is it our fault they misused our investments?
And   now, to add insult to injury, they’re calling it a   “benefit,” as if we never worked to earn every penny of it.
Just because they “borrowed” the money, doesn’t mean that our   investments were a   charity !
Let’s   take a stand.
We   have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare.
Demand   that our legislators bring some sense into our government –;
Find   a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going, for the sake of that 92% of   our population who need it.
Here’s   a novel idea: Reduce the military budget to support our own population.
Get   out of the countries who don’t want us there.
Bring   our soldiers home and invest some of the $700B+ in giving them new careers
building   roads and parks, teaching our children, creating new technologies,   discovering cures for illness.
Then take the rest and begin to pay back Social Security, and call it what it is: Our Earned Retirement Income.

Remember the wall oven I was supposed to have installed last Saturday.  It got here, and went right back.  The frontage was way too harrow and left a 1 1/2″ gap on it’s left side.  Just didn’t work and looked ridiculous.  Not only am I devastated, I have to pay a restocking fee.  By restocking they mean put back on floor with the other clearance items.  Grrrr

Today we go to Social Security and sign Hubby up.  66 next month.  We want to check our options.  I don’t get the choices.  I can apparently collect 40% on his, but in two years will I be able to collect the whole amount on mine, which is higher?  Need a person.  Wish us luck.  At least Hubby won’t feel obliged to work overtime 5 mights a week anymore.  Back to work full time on 8/23.    How the hell dd we get to be this old anyway?????
