Banking blog B*&^H session

I guess I should consider myself "lucky" and that is exactly what the banks want me  to think. I am trying to refinance my loan . The paper work is endless and the attitude  of the bank!!! Yikessss . I think after last year when "We " the American people bailed them out We in general  have a new attitude about them,  well, at least I do . It used to be that I thought of the banking industries as the most conservative and also honest system with all their checks and balances. I now  do not trust them one bit and because of the loan that "we " gave them I feel it is their duty to give me on one back. Yet they have his attitude that if they look hard enough they will find some flaw in my history .( Last week I got turned down for a credit card because my credit score was to low It was 734!!). It has been an unpleasant experience so far, but as I said with their "new" tighter  rules system I am lucky to have gotten this far.   I am sorry If I offend anyone that works for a bank. I know it it the CEO's that are the "greedy" ones. I doubt any bank CEO is going to read my blog .But hmmm maybe they will as part of the "checking" me out process?!?! TEEE HEEE

Go dogs go

Do you like my hat? Remember the odd woman dog in Go Dogs Go. I think she was an artist?   I always kind of liked  her as a kid ,yet I knew she was Odd.  Go Dogs Go was my favorite Dr. Seuess book.  That man  was brilliant!! Our contemporary is Tim Burton!! Love him too.

Obsession or Love in Multiples

My sister Lorrie is taking an online class in photography from  LK Ludwig . One of the projects for the day was to take a picture of something you use everyday that comes in multiples. Do my Uggs count !! If you have ever had a pair, then you are hooked. I do not care how Uggggly they are   as they are the best and I plan to have them one day in every color of the rainbow. I am waiting for deep true red . But last year I missed out on the metallics. They sold out before I could get them and this year hmmm I guess I am saving for next year?!?

There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound. ~Diana Cortee

 It has been almost a year since "Art Nest" art retreat where I meet Karen . A few days ago a surprise  arrived  in the mail !! After reading my blog Karen  thought I needed a pick me up! When I opened  it, tears came to my eyes . He stands about 5 inches tall and is the sweetest thing in the world!!! He now owns a place of  great honor in my living room placed on my victorian clock shelf beside old clock. I call him  " The Time Keeper " and  he will remind me that all things heal in time . Thanks, sweet Karen and a BIG  thanks to every one of you for your DEAR support and comments  . I heal a bit more everyday. Art saves lives !  PS I have told Karen she needs to  make these dear little guys and sell them! Her site is Oh but she is warming in the sun in Maui right now!!! Hugs to all Julie
