I never wanted to work in a mine, but after going down into a couple of them, I sure respect the men who did.

We have made it a practice to never
be late on payments even if we had to shorten something else. I have always
noticed late charges. They are normally $3-$6 if paid late, BUT I just noticed
this bill here in Deltona, FL for water/sewer.
processed charge is posted after 4:30 11/27/17
I was shocked. I cannot imagine kicking someone that hard
for being late. We ‘auto pay’ so we
should never be late, but the idea offends me, unless the city has experienced
floods of late payers.
We are very blessed. There have been
some tight times in our lives, but we have never went hungry or not been able
to pay our bills. For the most of our lives we have both worked. Except for the
first few years of our sons lives Sherry was a working lady. She enjoyed that
short portion of her life when she was a stay at home mom. My girl has always had a very good work
ethic. Never missed work and even brought home work she could not finish at her
She is special, especially to me! But also her friends and the bosses she has worked for.
This girl has received a suitcase of ‘awards’ for the things she has
done. I am so proud of her.
My girl is especially cognoscente of
her church. No matter where we travel, each month (at her direction) I write a letter to accompany
our tithe and gifts to the local church. I adored her mama, Susie. What a
mentor for Sherry. Sherry taught me a lot about finances. Much she learned from
her mom. Susie was the master of
With a birthday coming up, she
shudders at the number ‘80’, but I smile. I am so lucky, blessed and happy that I still have
her in my life. Heck, I am just a few months behind her, but we are both here, that is worth all the
gold in the world.
After JJr was born, she was much happier and a newer car, '55 Ford. Kirksville, Missouri

You and Sherry are so blessed. I wish her the best birthday ever.
Boy the water company in Deltona wants to make it an extra incentive for people to pay on time! That is quite a jump in late payments! We do a lot of auto pays too.
Money management is a gift; seems like it was a great one Sherry's mom had that she passed down to Sherry; sure have benefited the two of you very well!
It is impossible to think both of you will be turning 80 in the time ahead. You are too fit to be "that old."
You two are very blessed and I'd say 80 years young, not old at all. I've always been able to pay bills on time too, but sadly there are those that don't. I wonder if that late fee works on getting payments in on time. Seems if someone couldn't pay on time, they also wouldn't be able to pay the late fee. I guess we can count ourselves lucky not to worry about it.
I just wrote a big comment but it never showed up so this one is a test. Grrrrrrr.
That water/sewer levy is INSANE!!! 'Wish I could say I've never been guilty. Before the banks grew wise, I'd send a post-dated check. (Hanging head ...)
That last photograph is wonderful ... love how Sherry's face just lights up when she looks at you. Like a model!
happy birthday to sherry. enjoy.
