Marvelous Monday Meanderings & Musings!

Last Update: May 09, 2022



Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

Let the "heat wave" begin! It was likely in the mid 60s (Fahrenheit) this morning when Kitty and I awakened! I slept well after talking to Monica on the phone for about an hour after she called me just after 11 pm last night.

I called her this morning at 6:45 am, and we chatted for fifteen minutes before I let her go to get the kids ready for school since my buddy Kevin was calling after he worked the graveyard shift at the railroad. She would have been letting me go soon anyway. She had complained of being tired, since she has not been getting enough sleep.

Right after those phone conversations, taking care of the furry assistants, and getting settled down in front of the computer, I then dived right into another Wealthy Affiliate Community sojourn, which is my normal morning routine daily!

After eating, Kitty made her way into the office to assist me with this endeavor! With her help, it did not take me long to get caught up.

I went outside on a break and took another quick image of the front yard. (above). When I headed back to the office, I noticed that the Blog Dogs were resting on their beloved ottoman.

Star, of course, woke up and almost ruined the image as she always tends to do!

Shortly after that, I rode the motorcycle over to the county building to pay my 2nd half property taxes of $1,782.96!


Talk about hurting--the county is not cutting back on anything, but the citizens are forced to suffer! I left it parked where it was while I walked a block over and dropped off a bill to the county for some work done a week and a half prior. I also went to the bank.

I'll likely ride it again later to the locksmith shop house if no lock work comes in.

When I arrived back at the eBay house it was time to get busy doing some more Wealthy Affiliate research.

I'm still having trouble figuring out the menus. When I load a post about a specific volume in my series, it is "added" to the menu, but each post actually becomes its own menu, and then the limit to those are four. There are 15 books in the menu, or at least that is what I am attempting to do! I will keep studying and trying to rectify this issue.

I even thought about placing all 16 volumes as sub-categories under a category, that hasn't gone over very well either.

Later on, as I was getting to ride the motorcycle over to the locksmith shop house, Tommy Williams, Frank and I's associate, showed up out of the blue and was investigating rep[airs needing to be done on my dead van!

We talked for a couple of hours, and then my Mom called, and since he needed to go anyway, that worked out fine too!

The rest of the evening will be on the computer when I get back home from riding over to the shop house!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAS NOW HAD AN EXCELLENT START TO A NEW WEEK! I AM MAKING THE BEST OF WHATEVER OPPORTUNITIES COME MY WAY! THE NEW WEEK HAS ARRIVED!

No good taxes! How about the government keeping their hands off our money and letting us manage it on our own? Now there's a solution!

Hope you manage to figure out the issue with your menu, Jeff. Is that one of the new sites that you're working on?

Hope your week is off to good start! 😎🐶🐱🐶

Yes, indeed, Isaiah! I think that all of us know how to manage our own money better than the government! That was the whole reason for the Amercian Revolution to begin with! You always go back to where you begin, and you have another one in the offing very soon if things don't change FAST!

The menu thing is very straight forward, yet it adds a menu for each book! How crazy is that? It is my new book site, yes!

I hope your week is off to an equally good start, my friend!🐶😹🐶

You're on point, Jeff

I likely will, Simone, but I tend to be stubborn on these issues for a bit, first!

This is a child theme, so without upgrading to their bigger package, I might not be able to do very much! We shall see! At worst, I might have Site Support move it to Generate press is nothing else!

I hope your day is going well!

Yes, I was thinking sometimes it’s better just to share the downs as well. I also don’t like lies of omission.

Thanks buddy, that is very touching.
If Monica doesn’t get back with you ( and she will ) I will marry you instead.lol. Oh noooo.

Seriously though, I appreciate the 🧐 thinking

thoughts and prayers are positive tools against the C krap.

Stevoi, I must admit that you would make a horrible bride, my friend! 😳😫 It's the thought that counts though! 🤣😹

Thoughts and prayers are essential medicines to defeat the C crap! A perpetually positive attitude is also key, my friend!

Taxes are a real pain! I feel your pain!! I just had to pay $2500.00 for state and federal taxes plus $1300.00 for half of my property tax. April is an expensive month!

Sounds like you and Monica are talking more now, that's great!

Have a great evening and good luck with those menus and widgets--those cause me trouble too.

They are, indeed, and what makes it worse is that during the economics crises, the local governments spend our money on frivilous things while we are all expected to cinch up out belts. There are only 3-4 months where I am not paying the government anything. 🙄

Perhaps if I could somehow become an illegal immigrant on the other hand.........🤔

I'm not quite sure how you could pull that off. Have a great day!

I'm not sure either, Barbara, but our rights are being trampled while they break the law right now!

I can almost "see" that heat moving in from the pics. There is a certain look to the light, don't you think. Paying those taxes sure does hurt, especially knowing the waste that's going on. Your website sounds like a tricky situation...hope you are able to get it worked out to your liking soon. Are you listing all the books you've written? Have a nice evening, Jeff.

I know what you mean, Susan! It hirts deeply! You are right! The heat makes things worse, but at least I got to sit out at my picnic table and drink beer with a breeze! 🙄🤪🍺

You have a nice evening too!
