Several of you asked me why I am not getting the pension Sarge paid into for over twenty years for me.  It is not "funded".  Here is a pamphlet that explains it (a$$holes) if you want to see.  Anyway it's called the SPB/DIC offset.  The translation of that is "you aren't getting your pension sukkah".  There are currently 85,000 widows in the USA that fall under this "widow's tax".  They are dying off and those will never get it.  I am hopeful that someday I might.  Oh, and one more thing...  Are you ready for this one???  If I remarry I CAN get it.  Go figure.  Our lawmakers at their finest. 

So okay, onward and upward to nicer things to talk about today.  WalMart is honoring Publix coupons and buy one get one free until October 9th.  I was able to score on several things there.  I had to show the cashier the ad and sure enough, got them free.

Then I worked hard in the pool and it felt so good.  When I got back upstairs and had a shower it was all I could do to stay awake.  I didn't want to take a nap because I was afraid I wouldn't sleep as it was already supper time and too late to nap.  Such problems, huh?  Ha ha...

So it's Monday again.  I love Mondays because I don't have anything I have to do so I can swim and get up whenever I want and just have a wonderful day.  Today I want to do a manicure/pedicure myself as my project of the day.  

Hope your Monday is as good as mine!


  1. Haahahahahahahahahahaha
    We all must have beautiful toes to show off at the pool !

    cheers, parsnip

  2. Buongiorno!!!
    you can mix well pleased thoughts of the day with those less pleased (from G. Translate...I hope it's correct!)
    Have a great Monday and an interesting and happy week!

    big hugs!

  3. Sometimes laws are just downright ridiculous!! xx

  4. I think that you should try to get the law changed. See if an attorney will help you

  5. I squeezed in a pedi early Sauturday before I had to go to the airport. Toe Inspection: passed! haha!

    Enjoy you ME day! big hugs xoxo

  6. I'm sorry to say Bee, your government sucks but they say if you remarry you can get it. Nuts to them all.What's also amazing is that they are getting their money but they stopping everyone's money. Love them all don't you.
    I love Monday's, Tuesday's, Wednesday's and so on to Sunday's. It's called retirement. Wonderful. Have a great Monday my unbelievable you.


  7. I'm guessing that women remarry far, far less then men remarry, so they figure they can take your money and use it for some stupid reason. I'm just guessing here. Thieves.

    Way to go at Walmart. I love those kind of coupons as long as I don't have to go to Walmart.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ☺

  8. well even us cats know the government suks.

    i hope you have a lovely day making your fingers and tosies pretty!!!

  9. :-P that's what I say about the government and it's "bureaucracy"

    Yay for a mani and pedi! My toesies are royal blue. Love it!

  10. so sorry to lean the details of the pension ripoff. . . it makes no sense, and must be changed. I hope you are going to try to work for that.
