We survived a trip to costco. Kiddo went back to school too.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

a fellow operator I met in school had called me the yesterday looking for job leads. I had nothing to offer, but I did have a 400 pound printer in the back of my truck that I needed to unload. I could really use his help.
He was bringing his wife along to look at the remodel job, so I set about making the house presentable. Turned on the music and got busy.

Cleaned and put away, and was ready when he showed up. I fired up Guido the forklift and we got it done.
Nothing like a little external motivation to clean house Smile

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
I needed a couple of shooting related things, so I went on-line to my usual 2 or 3 vendors.
Well, one had two things but not the other, another had one thing at a really good price, the third place didn't have anything much. But getting stuff from multiple places just adds up more shipping costs.

I Googled® for one of the items that no one had and noticed another vendor I occasionally use, though not usually for shooting stuff.
Well, they had everything I was looking for, at really good prices, and free shipping. Smile

But wait - there's more.

I had a couple hundred dollar store credit there that I had forgotten. Shocking
I got all the stuff for 'free'. Big Grin

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
The IRS has been after me to the tune of a couple thousand bucks for under-declaring income for 2014.

In a nutshell, I had meant to deposit some money in my brokerage account but accidentally put it in my IRA. Facepalm

About 10 days later, I noticed what I had done. I called the firm and got it straightened out - no harm, no foul. The "excess IRA contribution" and the "IRA distribution" were to disappear.

Someone didn't get the memo. Dodgy

A year and a half later, the IRS decides I owe them tax on those transactions. Sadcryface2
But after a couple of fruitless exchanges of letters and forms, I called the IRS.
After the usual circular automated phone menus, I finally got a person on the line. Smile

She was very pleasant and spent a fair amount of time trying to get the right forms and procedures to make this go away. So after a bit, I asked if we could recap what needed to be done.

She said, "Oh, I'm trying to solve your problem right now." Shocking

So, after I gave her the brokerage info and so forth, she said the issue was closed, and I would get a confirmation notice in the mail. Big Grin

A satisfactory conclusion to any interaction with a government agency is indeed rare, and cause for celebration. Thumbsup

Here's a capybara in a sombrero with a fake mustache. Culturally insensitive? Sure, but still adorable in a strange way.
