My plan and backup plan

by Warren

Hi Judge ... I watch you daily! I save change and have piggy banks all over the house in old medicine bottles and the different coins are kept with like coins, dimes with dimes ... you get the picture. I also worked jobs that give me pensions, so I could have regular money flow throughout life. I look for deals and remember what Old Mr. Abrahms told me when I was a kid. He said, "Tony, work hard and pay yourself by putting it away out of your sight". Well, I half listened and bought a house here in New Orleans because it's affordable. Now I'm 62, I'll probably never pay off this house, but I'm living in my own space with a big yard and have a comfortable life not,"Fabulous" albeit comfy. So here's to having a dirt spoon given to ya and molding it into mosaic clay!
