Post 700: a good reason to keep cats…

I talk with my financial adviser next week, and need to have some of my financial ducks lined up in a neater row than they usually are.

One of those ducks is my tax return for last year. Knowing my tax liability will help set how much money I draw out of my retirement account each month this year. If I owe money in, of course, I may want to have more withdrawn in taxes before the money’s transferred to my banking account. If I get money back, well – woohoo! – maybe I can splurge on a new cat toy or something for myself.

So, I put all my tax papers in a manila envelope, then couldn’t find it. Never mind. Andy found it in an instant, and promptly claimed it for himself!

"What's this?!"

“What’s this?!”



Yes, yet another good reason to keep cats, though Andy wasn’t happy when I took “his” new claim away!

  1. I’m in Florence right now, in a little apartment in an old part of the city. Across the alley is a little shoemakers shop, “manned” by 3 young Japanese women. That’s interesting enough, BUT they have 3 gorgeous cats in the workshop. How can I afford some handmade shoes so I can play with those cats!

    • I’d brazenly walk in, compliment the kitties, get into a conversation with the proprietors about their wonderful kitties, and, by virtue of revealing your appreciation for cats, get the “Friends of Cats Discount” on those handmade shoes! One thing about handmade shoes, they are a good investment since they are specifically fitted to you, so should last much longer than off the shelf shoes.

    • Thanks! That’s an unimaginable number, but it happened a day at a time, eh?!Fortunately, I tend to spend within my means and carry no debt beyond one billing cycle. Anyway, thanks! I am doing well financially because I am (mostly!) very responsible.
