    I guess the most recent was the lawyer I posted about- the one who sent my mom an unexpected bill for $700 or $800, including the time he spent increasing his fees. I wound up phoning his office and told him we were broke. He accepted less than half of what was due and petitioned the courts to have himself removed as the attorney. I call that a win.

    My 65 yo house had to have new electrics. Twenty three hundred bux! I don't pay rent, but I have to pay for any maintenance I think the place needs.

    I suppose 4-500 pairs, may be more, could be viewed as a bit of a tiny fetish... I love them because the look good and are amazing to wear...   I'm only a little Dot and I can see eye to eye with others when I wear 

    Who is the "Doc" by the way ?

    Never I was always able to scrape up the money.  Last time I was that tight was in my pup days over 25 years ago.  I had dug a hole, I dug myself out and have never been in that hole again.  The valuable lessons I learned from that:

    A. Credit Cards are for convenience - not Credit

    B. It is easier to save $100 than pay it off. 

    So if I do not have the money, I do not spend it.  I also learned to have a "do not touch rainy day fund" of at least 3 months pay which in those days was 3 x 568.34
