This morning was one to spend in the country, not too far from town, but away from the bustle. To offset some of the quiet and contentment I listened to The Rolling Stones’ Beggars Banquet album. I am not a huge fan of the Stones, but I do like this album a lot. Blood, Sweat & Tears did a great cover of the first song on the album, Sympathy For The Devil. I like it just as much as the original. That makes sense since I always liked BS&T more than the Stones.
Cindy wants to refinance our mortgage. It is a good idea financially, but (there is always a but…in just about everything…see how often I use it when I write) I hate putting together the financial information they crave. For some reason I can never find half of the documents they require. For instance, they want a benefit letter I received from the Social Security Administration. Fine, I’ll just go to my Social Security file. When I get to the file I can’t locate the letter. I can find the letters they sent in previous years, but this year’s letter is not there. I can get the info on the Internet, but the page from the website doesn’t have my name and/or SSN on it. I can send away for it and receive a copy in seven to ten days, but is that soon enough? What’s an old boy to do? Well, I’ll work it out. Luckily I’m a pack rat so I’m sure they letter is here, just misfiled, or in one of about a half dozen tote boxes ready to be sorted through. I guess I can’t put that off for much longer. It’s just that there are so many other things I would rather do.
Here’s a useful, informative website. However (another way of saying but), I sometimes start worrying when I read it, The Cyber Daily: http://paper.li/ProfWoodward/1327248079
