Took a day off today and I just kicked around. I bought a breakfast and coffee and finished off a gift card, so my meal only cost 80 cents. I told the cashier that I hoped she didn't mind a batch of dimes I found on the street! She was as amazed as I was - so many dimes. I joked that the obesity epidemic will only improve my odds - soon no one will be able to touch their toes. ... This before I found two dimes today.

Found a screaming good deal at the Pike Market today - 4 cukes for $1, so I bought two. After gym and the late lunch I popped into a QFC in the sushi lunch neighborhood, thinking that I would pick up some salad for the cukes. I looked at the prices and left the store. Despite picking up sidewalk change for laughs, I have my pride.

One my stocks has now been bought by another company. As part of the buyout, I get 1.35 shares of the other company, which also pays a dividend. Last I checked, they didn't have a formal Drp, so I suspect I will get dividend checks. But one never knows, things can change. Time to watch the mail to see who the new transfer agent is.

    I dripped GE again today. Big Grin Drip Drop. I forget to mention them here. But I like seeing them adding up. Yeah, I'm going to be one of THOSE kinds of old ladies. One of these days I may just reverse the faucet.

    Lux - the EZ-est first step to reverse the faucet if you have online drip accounts is to check off that you want the dividend mailed to you, instead of having it re-invested.

    Yes, but I'm not there yet. While Hubster seems to be retiring, and even though I'm not currently employed in an official j.o.b. I'm still trying to build assets for MY golden years, which despite the grey hairs trying to creep in, I'm not claiming to be in YET!

    Love my DRPS, which is the way I first got started investing. Nice, slow and easy, a way to figure out how it all worked.
