Here are the fill-ins:
- My Chinese zodiac animal sign is I have no earthly idea .
I don’t know anything about the Chinese zodiac. I have heard of it, but that is about as far as that goes. Suzanne tells me that I am a year of the tiger and she is the year of the snake, which are supposedly about as incompatible as it gets. Since I have a healthy respect for snakes, it is a wonder we are attracted. I was getting better until I learned my mother’s teenage neighbor lost his 8-foot king cobra. That event made international news. I am still apprehensive.
- My zodiac sign is Gemini.
I am a gemini, the sign of the twins. I don’t really get into zodiac. However, it is entertaining from time to time to see how closely people’s real personalities align with what the zodiac says it should be.
Suzanne is a leo. Most of what she has told me about leos rings very true with her. Both of our sons are gemini. Their personalities are not alike and neither of them is very much like me. I think it is fun entertainment, but really not something to base one’s life around. I do recall back in the sixties and seventies when a lot of people were basing their lives on what their horoscope said. That is wrong.
However, if you do it like Suzanne and our oldest daughter do it where it is just fun to look for similarities, there is nothing wrong with that.
- Income tax season is actually fun.
Each year I prepare about five or so returns. They are all for family. One of the family is my sister from another mother. Her tax preparer messed her up. She was in trouble with the IRS to the tune of thousands of dollars. She prayed and asked God to help her. She called us out of the blue and asked if I could help. It had to be God because I don’t advertise. She called and we found a big mistake in a previous return that dropped what she owed to practically nothing. The IRS waived most of the fees and worked with her on the rest.
- In hindsight, life is too short.
Looking back, I see that I have said the wrong thing or done the wrong thing many times over. If I could go back and unsay things that I have said or undo things I have done, I would do so, knowing that it is best to guard our words and our actions.
Have a great week, y’all.
