Hello...Hello....Anyone there.....

...don't even ask....I'm not even going to say anything about my big ole' long absence...I'm just gonna start from here....today....OK, let's go....

Well, this is one of the things that has kept me very busy.....the cutest little bugger in the world (to his Nonnie anyway)..Cason Gage...he is almost 5 months old....we are having so much fun with him.


Ya know I was just thinking today....does anyone keep a checkbook anymore....with debit cards and automatic bill paying....checks are almost absolete.




A friend of mine told me the other day - she was at the cashier counter paying for her purchases and she was writing a check and she overheard some young girls behind her complaining because she was taking so long....they said..."OMG, she is WRITING a check!!"


I don't really keep one - I get on line everyday and check my balance and see what has posted and what has not - I write maybe 2 - 3 checks a month...mainly for utilities. I really think writing checks will fall completely by the wayside....like alot of other paper!!!


Just something to think about.....

This is a great BLOG if you like to cook and try new recipes. She is a Texan living in New York (could it get any worse!!) - a great writer!!

It's good to see you posting, Donna!!

Cason is a doll baby and I can see why he would occupy your time in a most important way!!

I still have a check book, but do most of my bill paying online. I'm the bookkeeper in the family. Since we've spent so much time at the lake this winter, I opted to do the online thing and find it so convenient. I still write an occasional check, but NEVER in line at the check out. It would be nice if check writers would have all but the amount filled out, to cut down on length of time. Call me a curmudgeon, but that's how I did it when I was still writing checks...be prepared when the total comes up!

Welcome back...hope to see more of you!
