when I read about folks getting their regular paychecks, and I’m mighty envious. Today is one of the rare days when I’m very pleased to be paid just by what I can raise myself. Perhaps this is pessimistic of me, but I never figured on ever seeing SS money when the time came. I’ve read too many articles on how it’ll either be broke or defunct or replaced by the time I’d ever start taking draws. And now I don’t have to resent them taking it out. I’ll have my taxes to pay at the end of the year, but at least when I sell the pig, I get the cash.
