Phillips County Arkansas will be Midas rich for a few weeks with all the refund anticipation loans that have been churned out this past week. Most of the "refunds" aren't actually refunds due to their being EIC credit that the government has gotten fond of giving out these past many years, which I wouldn't mind so much if it weren't for the danged fraud going on that we're not able to do diddle about. But I guess it's 12 of one and half dozen of the other, the government might as well be sticking our tax money in those slot machines over at the casinos for all the good they do with it. At least this gives those with lower income the opportunity to pull the slots.
The Chick was in fine form this past week. It was cold and rainy one day and Jerri had some errands to run so she called her mom to stay with the girls. When Banny came in (that's what Chick calls her other grandma), Chick had about 10 of her baby dolls lined up on the couch and she told Banny, "They've all got clean panties on and they've been fed, now I'm going with my momma." I believe she was a tad upset when she didn't get to.
Then tonight we were sitting at the supper table and we heard a thump in the living room. Chick piped up, "What the hell was that?" Try swallowing your food without choaking after hearing that sweet little girl voice come out with that. I think I snorted pinto beans out of my nostrils.
Jerri took some great photos of the kiddies last weekend with my new camera.
