What’s Your Favorite Sound

Can I only pick one? Because I don’t know if I can pick just one. Maybe a few per season? Can I do that?

Why not? I’m going to do that.

My favorite sounds for Winter include the crunch of snow under my feet and the sharp cracking of ice breaking.

Spring brings the soft patter of rain and the beautiful chorus of birdsong with each sunrise.

Summer! Ah, Summer! My favorite season of all! You give me the ocean-like rustle of leaves, the deep rumbling of thunder, and the drone of the cicada.

Autumn, I have not forgotten you. Again, the rustling of leaves, but a sharper, drier sound. The shwish-shwish of kicking through a leaf-drift on the sidewalk. The honking of geese as they fly overhead to their winter vacation spots.

What are some of your favorite sounds?


What is Your Current Bank Balance?

I had to go to my online checking account to find out the answer to that question because I am absolutely HORRIBLE at keeping a checkbook.

I love online checking. I really do. It’s such a bother to keep track of everything in my checkbook. You make one little mistake or forget to log in an expense and BOOM! Next thing you know, you’re overdrawn and getting hit with a huge overdraft charge up to $35, which is overkill, I think, for a measly $0.03 error in mathematics.

It’s not fair! It’s not right! It should be illegal!

Some might call the excessive overdraft charges out and out theft.

I wouldn’t disagree.

Fortunately, I discovered online checking several years ago. And I have greatly reduced the number of overdraft charges I’ve incurred. It’s saved me tons of aggravation and money, believe me.

As to how much is currently in my checking account? Well, that’s really no ones business but my own.
