I write one maybe two checks a month. I have three bills that total very small amounts, less than $25 each. The one check I do write is my rent check. Any other check is usually for the grocery store for items not covered by food stamps. The three bills I pay on line. Write a check, pay three bills on line and in less than 20 minutes, I am done for the month. A great feeling.

Moving a little slow today but the new hand is performing beautifully. The culprit now is my left hip, which I suspect needs to be replaced. Holy crap! Patch, patch, patch!

At any rate, all the housecleaning is done, laundry is done (some still on the line but dry), I know what dinner will be and I have some root beer cookies in the oven.

Got a little later start today because Mother Nature saw fit to rain on us, which is a good thing. It's been horribly dry here and we needed it, but it didn't help when it came to hanging laundry outside.

I decided not to be thwarted and fashioned a clothesline on the back porch. No biggie because the porch is 60 feet long. The problem was finding clothesline. Couldn't find any but I made do quite nicely by crocheting together one strand each of lacing thread and 27-pound test fishing line (not monofilament) using a large crochet hook. Only took a matter of minutes to end up with 18 feet of very nice line. Laundry is flappin' in the breeze.

Worked so well I might just make enough to run the full length of the porch.

GENIUS! Hope you don't have many problems with that hip. You need a break between all the patch-patching.

I write one check a month, for the power bill. They want to charge me $2 to use my credit or debit card, so I just mail them a check.

I just finished a document for one of my clients. No big deal, except my client's network got hacked in July. I feel as if I'm a character in a spy novel...all this hush-hush stuff is very intriguing (and somewhat scary because of the vulnerability of technology), but also very exhausting. Spending the weekend at the farm relaxing (mowing, picking beans, and more beans, and more beans).

I know where my business account cheque book is--I write 5 cheques / year on that account--all to the government for taxes. I would have to hunt for my personal cheque book. I don't think I've written a personal cheque since...2008?

I pay all my bills via credit union's bill payer. I write 1 or 2checks a year for gifts. That's about it. Even the state and the Feds get paid electronically. I know where the checks are, just don't care much.

Just so long as you don't have to get a new heart. The one you have is just perfect. At the rate you are going we will never be able to say, "I have an old friend." Little by little we are getting a whole new friend.
