Today is a busy day. I have dentist at 9, a meeting at the bank at 10, then I start an inventory with an accountant at 12.
Last night was too short. I was aware of the time passing too quickly while I was asleep, and the alarm was extra loud.
In Hawaii, having a gekko in your house is good luck. At first it was ok having a gekko in the house. Now there’s just tooo many.
We tried mothballs, till the house smelled like an old folks home. We called exterminators, to get rid of the bugs that were supposedly the gekkos food.
But nothing works.
Next I’m going to try the sticky mousetraps, even though they’re inuhmane.
How do you get rid of gekkos?
I didn’t leave the house all weekend, I don’t think. The Wife went and got a micro chip put in our Dawg, Sheba, and she went and got some Cokes. I think that’s it for her too.
Now it’s back to work.
Friday I got my Cayman Islands passport, overshadowed by the fact that Friday was also my job interview for my job. It went OK, it just seems kind of degrading somehow.
There is some weather forming, so today may or may not be a beach lunch day!
So, I mailed the check, transferred $1000 to my US account, and then did a wire transfer from my US account here to the US bank.
Then a couple of later, I get a call from the bank. I transferred the money, but not enough for the fee to wire it to the US. So they didn’t do it.
So then I had to do the wire transfer over.
The check got to the bank at 8:30 AM, (they don’t even open till 9). The wiire transfer got there at 10. So my check bounced, $30 fee. So now I’m $30 short for my mortgage payment, for which the check bounced, but I can’t call them and tell them to try again, because there’s only 970 for a $1000 check.
I sent up $500 yesterday to have a buffer. I’ll see how long that will take to get there, should be instantaneous, but the banks like to hold the money for a while so they can use it. Also, the bank tends to nibble away at any buffer funds you put up there.
(I keep my $$$ in my CI Savings, and transfer to my US Savings to wire to the US. The US Savings here and the US account pretty much always have the minimum in them.)
Snowy the West Highland Terrier had to be operated on by vets after she swallowed five ceramic ornaments.
X-rays clearly showed the little cats inside the dog’s stomach.
Stunned owner Samantha Reed said: “I was shocked when the vets phoned to say Snowy had swallowed a few cats. I thought they meant real ones!”
