I got my checks from the bank--they were NOT stolen!

It is a day for celebration for The Horse. Not because it is July 4, but because my checks were not stolen from the mail. I can now pay bills, pay my rent, and do other things that Americans are supposed to be able to do. Yes, I'm happy that it appears that Donald Trump will finally do some time, but I am less concerned with that than I am with my own well-being. I am off to a friend's house now to play some Irish music. He is a master at DADGAD tuning. We will play in DADGAD together. Here is a tune I did in DADGAD. Most of you have already seen/heard it. I love its dreamy qualities. I will pay my rent tomorrow!

Have you ever looked into getting your checks by Direct Deposit? You wouldn't have to worry about anyone stealing your checks then. Have a good time with you friend!

@DaddyEvil Heh. Been partying with my friend. Originally reread your text as "stealing your chicks." Sadly, I flashed on baby chickens and didn't even think about people stealing my adoring fans. "Maturity" sucks.

@DaddyEvil is right, why not to get your checks by Direct Deposit and forget worrying?

@DaddyEvil Oh my goodness, he prefers to have his check stolen than trust technology.

He won't do that because it's technology he doesn't trust so doesn't want to learn about it. *sigh*

Because these are blank checks that I use to buy things. One of my employers pays me by direct deposit. It is convenient.

How did your bank have your checks if they were supposed to come in the mail?

I am confused. I ordered blank checks. They came in the mail.

Glad the checks arrived. The mail has been quite slow lately. I mailed a Father's Day card from Oklahoma to California, and it took 12 days to arrive.

Americans are supposed to pay bills? Are you sure that isn't just a California Commie thing?
