I Suck At Lotto Numbers

Hello all well, here's my story for this week, so far. I suck at picking lotto number. I played my birthday 623 for the week spending $5 and guess what came out 631. I tell you I suck at picking numbers that will win me  any kind of money.

With the summer coming I have found that our night time raccoons have found a great meeting place and that's in my back yard. Last night they had a meeting and 6 of them was just sitting in my back yard for about 15 minutes. I guess talking things over they were certainly drinking. I had left the  water sprinklers on my accident and they were drinking the water from it. I guess the drinks were on me last night.

I just realized that July is coming so fast and I have so much to do and one of my goals is to put up more YouTube videos and concentrate on losing weight. See in the picture I am in the park getting my exercise on.  Oh well that's about it so far will keep you posted if anything comes up. Well what do you think?

Crazy Birthday!!

                                          Hey Everyone. Here's The story for the Week!

Yesterday was my birthday and it was pretty Crazy. Not in the fun crazy way but in the  I am gonna punch you in the face crazy way. It started when I went to the bank to deposit some money. I got into a heated debate with the teller about certain accounts that I have  with the bank and the functions that I can do with these accounts. The the teller  debated me about these can't of what I can't do with them and then she made a smart remark about why am I not getting charged for fees on my checking account when everybody else is. This really pissed me off that was none of her damn business why. I wanted to report her ass to the  bank manger  after she said that but I let it go because I was trying to stay in a good mood for my Birthday.

Second thing was that me and my partner had a big fight and I ended up walking 3 miles home. That was ok because one of my goals for my birthday was to walk anyway, so at least that was accomplished. The last thing was  I wanted to make reservations for Atlantic City for my free room night in July. They told me I have no free nights and the cost of the rooms and dates I wanted would be $119 per night. Forget it. My birthday was crazy frustrating. I ended up buying a cake at the supermarket and making hamburger and french fries for dinner and calling it a day. I was to frustrated and tired to go out anyway.

So that's my story for the week. What do you think?

Yard Sale

Hello Everyone. Well Here's my story so far. Sunday was a day for me. I had my community yard sale and it was a nice day, lots of  work and a bust. I was selling stuff that I just wanted to get rid of and I was selling it cheap $3 or less. I made $35.50 and this was an all day affair. By doing this yard sell I got rid of some stuff and also the stuff that I did not sell will got o charity. So I am ok with that. Yard sales are  fun when you go to them but if you work them trust me they are work.

On to another subject my rental tenant. yes I have a tenant is acting us . I have sent her several messages by mail and calling her , She has yet to respond. Guess the last notice I send her is an eviction notice. But the problem with that is that she pays on time but I have seen how she keeps my house and it's a mess. I don't think I am cut out to be a landlord I am way to nice. I let people pass to many times on things that I should not let them pass on. Oh well next ....

I am having a birthday next week the big 54 and I am not sure what I want to do. All I know that it will be simple because I am on a mission to save my $$ for my Hawaii trip next year at 55 and my Christmas cruse this Dec. So right now for me it's all about the $$

So that's my story what do you think?

Pension Reality

Hey Everyone. Well Here's my story for the week so far. Yesterday I got my statement from my City pension system. ( I worked for New York City For 20 years)This statement tells you  when you can collect your city pension, how much per year you will be getting and at what age. This is a pension that I will be getting for the rest of my life. Well..... When I saw how much money I would be getting monthly about $1300. It shocked me and not in a good way. You forget that I live in New York and it's expensive. This statement gave me a real wake up call that I have 8 years to get my ass in gear and add more to the investments that I already have outside of my pension. I do not want to be a bag lady at 65. That's not even an option for me. I have to find ways to add more money to my investments while still enjoying my life. Got any suggestions??

On to other news I am looking in to December cruises. I want a holiday cruses out of New York. I see a few that I am looking into but the price for me has to be right. I need more bang for my buck and these cruses will be expensive bucks. I will let you know who and where I go later.
On that note what do you think?
