Well, it looks like I haven’t ironed out the kinks in my financial systems here.  I’ve sent $1,200.00 to the canceled Visa card.  Balance is down to $2,900.00 from $4,000.00 back in Twelfth Day of Accounting.  I’ve also transferred funds from my Bank of St. Croix account to my Bank of America account.  Already made the IRS payment for this month.  But somewhere in the mix, something went awry.  Keep reading . . .

My mother telephoned today.  The money still isn’t available.  And probably won’t be on Monday either—the day I’m supposed to pay the IRS.  Gotta hold on.   Keep reading . . .
