Thursday? Already? Damn!

Got an e-mail from SWMBO with a statement from our Broker stating that we’d entered a trade on oil at 93 and it was now at 94.7 (or so) and the margin call on it was $14.5k. ??? Far as I know we haven’t made a trade in weeks! Called the broker and he said not to worry about it as it was a mistake. Someone else’s trade that somehow got put on our account. Too bad because if it had been our trade and we closed it out we’d have made $6700+! B-U-M-M-E-R!! But at least I don’t owe someone $14k! :grin:

Spent most of yesterday backing up my drives and moving wire around trying to make things a bit neater here in the living room. Just the backup of my data takes over 50 Gig. Think it’s about time for me to go through all that stuff and delete what I haven’t used for awhile.

Not much else going on today. Went and got a haircut. It’s nice and sunny outside. Landlord’s helper is putting rain gutters on the house. (Should have been done 25 years ago!) Just waiting for Smallville. Think we’ll have BLT’s and fries for dinner.

Ed Was In Trouble!

He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really mad. She told him “Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds, AND IT BETTER BE THERE.”

The next morning, Ed got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window, and sure enough, there was a medium-sized gift-wrapped box in the middle of the driveway.

Confused, the wife put on her robe, ran out to the driveway, and brought the box back into the house. She opened it and found a brand-new bathroom scale.

Funeral services for Ed have been scheduled for Friday.
