Fantastic Weekend~?
You Bet~!

HIGH, Ya'll!
Absent from the bloggie here for our Valentine's Day weekend,
-no apology though.

My bride and I spent the long weekend in Hot Springs, Arkansas, luxuriating in the spa, visiting with our dad, Kenneth and his wife Lois, and making our first wedded Valentine's Day something we can look back on for the next 1000 years.

And I will take a full 1/3 of the bill off my taxes, as an expense too.

Mal,

I like your way of thinking! Can you tell me how to take a visit to my son at Fort Bragg off my taxes?

I like the elephant picture. Happy Valentine to you and your bride for the next 1000 years.

Mal,
Here is a comment I left over at MSG's blog

Again, I find we are on the same page. I like the term re-seat Nancy Pelosi. What a great idea. What do you think of a national campaign in every democratically held district? We were betrayed in Ohio by two RINO's and I sheepishly didn't nothing except vote against them. Blog for Ohio, sounds great to me.

Well, thank yeh.
Can I tell you how to take a visit ... off your taxes?
Perhaps- mostly generally, best to consult with a tax preparer or an accountant friend, more familiar with your situation, Pops.

Anyway, we will be able to write off part of the weekends' expenses because my F-in law is a real estate broker, and we talked about real estate strategies to protect his daughters'/my wealth.
Secondly, as a casino auditor, I felt it was my duty this weekend, to go to Arkansas, and personally inspect their sole gambling and parimutual site, Oaklawn Park, which Leti and I did yesterday.
(that's the "YOU BET~!" part of this blog post)
All business related write off, including our betting losses.
Even though we were ahead by 450.00 after the 5th race.

Use your trip to Ft. Bragg, to further your potential income stream, and thereby, take off the expenses from your taxes next year.
You work for the Big Mart, correct?

Visit a Ft. Bragg superstore, meet people therein, and ask how they do their similar jobs, better or more efficiently or with better results. Write It All Up, as a report!!
And keep your receipts for everything, including meals.

One of the best things about being married is that you always have a valentine!

If I was still in the work force, I would consult you on how to cheat Obama out of some tax money. Do you suppose I could claim Munchkin as a dependent?

I am glad to see you so happy compared to how you were a year ago. Leti has been the best thing to happen to you. god bless her for that.

What a sweet thing to say, my dear friend- thank you.

When I was a kid, I went to a family friend's wedding with my folks. The couple's car had the obligatory tin cans tied to it and shoe-polished messages all over it.

On the rear window was scribbled "Hot Springs Tonight!" and since I had heard that the couple was going to Dallas for their honeymoon, asked my folks about it.

I didn't get an answer, but noticed the look exchanged between my parents.
