Amount of this year's dividend: $1106.96
- Deduction for traffic ticket from 2004 that languished in my desk w/administrative fees : $150
- Cost of timing belt, water pump, tow, and labor after Sept. 30 breakdown in the Valley: $697
- Vet bill for wayward dog that returned at 1 a.m. last night with an artfully* cut front paw: ~$20
How? Why? Will I ever have a fall where calamity does not descend immediately after the PFD arrives?
*The vet looked at Rosario, supposed-dog-but-possibe-alien-masquerading-as-dog pictured above, and said the cut was "artful." In addition to the vet bill, I now have 30+ bloody paw prints in the Soob and cabin to clean up. Oh, and duct tape is unsuitable as a subsitute for roller gauze and medical tape.
