You need to update your list of villains. Ranting about commies is so "OK Boomer".

Yeah but don't you get that new enhanced depreciation loophole?

Just sent in my return and check last week. (According to my USPS tracking number, they received it today.) That should help cover payments to about 10 stimulus check recipients.


I wonder if the IRS folks are at work, at least depositing checks that are sent in?

There's probably a few lonely individuals still there scanning checks.

So many of us in retirement have worked long enough to earn our fixed incomes. No chance of ever being laid off again. And the pension check and social security checks are still showing up on time.

Not around here, that's for sure! Remember, the Houston area has huge Hispanic and Asian populations.

I was thinking the baseball season demise is actually probably a good thing for the Astros. Spares them a great deal of humiliation. Maybe fans will forget by the time baseball returns. I, for one, truly miss my baseball.

Astros? Who are they?

Even no more TV commercials with key players and the HEB grocery store owner....yeah, I miss baseball too, and so does DW, but these guys REALLY crapped in their nest in this town.
