If you are on Medicare you have seen this statement a thousand times. We seldom use Medicare, but when we do the paperwork starts coming in, ‘THIS IS NOT A BILL’. When the bill does come in it gives some ridiculous charges, saying ‘You could be billed for this amount $xxx.xx.’ Then it goes to your supplement.
A few days ago we received a letter from the Census Bureau, the letter stated: “You will receive a letter soon concerning the census. Please fill it out and return.” Now I am good at math but I don’t deal in figures of millions. But how much did it cost to print that letter, stuff the envelopes, and pay postage to send it to every family in the USA?
Oh, and yesterday a man from the census bureau came to the Motor Home door, to ask us if we had a permanent address. That was all he asked.
I quit. This is the fourth entry for today I have started and they went poitical so I quit. I refer you to Jimmy’s Journal of a day or so ago with which I agree. And I am voting for Jimmy for President next time.
WE are here in Columbia, SC to visit friends. Some we haven’t seen for over fifty years. It has been such a joy. We ate with one last night, and attended church with him and his wife this morning. Amazing the things we need to catch up on. Friends in common, funny things that happened in our youth, etc.
Tomorrow we meet with more friends, one we haven’t seen in the 50 years and others we have seen only a couple times.
This view is the live sunset across Lake Murray here in Columbia, SC.
taken from the car as we drove across the dam.
How do you like this tunnel with the sunset?
