Safely Cocooned…

Posted by Les Becker on August 3, 2015 in Finances, J.O.B., Photography, Productivity, Real Life |
New Beginning

I have a good routine going now. Four nights at The Big Box J.O.B. and two nights at the gasbar – finances are in order, pre-paid bank accounts are being built up, my garden is “gardening”, and my book is selling. I feel like I’m in a safe little cocoon again – much like this […]

WHOOOO-HOOOOOO!

Posted by Les Becker on August 29, 2012 in Finances, Zenishness... |

Remember THIS HORRIBLE POST?? Well, I did end up getting nailed for that house after foreclosure. BUT. Today, I got a letter in the mail: Please find enclosed CMHC’s Deficiency Release document in your name representing full and final satisfaction of your outstanding debt. Please sign above your name on the attached Release document and […]

Somewhere, There’s a Silver Lining…

"Shine On"

It was a wicked week. Ups, downs, and a few upside-downs, to boot. On the “up” side, the Lily-Dawg has her new home. As I write this, I imagine she is either paddling in the creek or lazing on/tearing through the back field of “her” farm, located down the line toward Teeny-Tiny Town… It’s possible, […]

Ta-DA!!

Ta-DA!!

Now, don’t get all excited by the “Ta-DA”; I don’t have much in the way of “lawyer” news, yet. I have to admit, though, that I’m sick and tired of being pissed off, already. And I feel guilty about dissing The Sire on my very public blog, even if he (sorta) does deserve it. And […]

And So It Begins…

Grate One

Well, this is a weird space I’m in… I feel like I’ve been through a cheese grater, hence the pic above, which is not a cheese grater, but it’s the closest I could come up with, without getting the camera out. Not to mention, finding a cheese grater. The house that isn’t mine is about […]

“Money Isn’t Real, George…”

Posted by Les Becker on May 3, 2009 in Finances, Movie Mentions, Real Life |
Birds on a Wire

In the movie, “Blow”, George’s dad tells him that money isn’t real. “It doesn’t matter, Georgie…” My dad would have disagreed with that one. I sure as hell disagree with that one. I am about to embark on a legal battle of epic proportions. Well… Epic for me. The Sire has gone AWOL. That still […]

A Sad, Sad Story with an Almost Happy Ending…

On Guard

I’ll be using a lot less of my little stepper machine in future, I think… Since I bought the Prissy-Van, “Walking-About” has declined to “walking across the street”. Ky and I (who has yet again been re-named – she is “The Evil Hypnotist”, and you’re about to find out why) both worried this would happen. […]

Whew! I Need That “Slow-It-All-Down” Button Again…

Posted by Les Becker on December 9, 2008 in Finances, Real Life |

Busy, wow! I’m loving the night shift, but will have to re-learn “day-shift mode” for the weekends until at least after the New Year, beginning this Sunday, when I start working days for Louie. That will only be on the weekends, mind you – I’m not sure yet how I’ll deal with working 7 days […]

Goodbye, Captain Underpants…

"The Tattered and Worn"

Tattered and worn is how Ky and I both feel about now. Our move of residence is imminent. As in, Today. I hate moving. I wanted to space it all out over a period of a couple of weeks, and the plan was working for awhile, even. The J.O.B., though, has me worn out. When […]

Money, Money, Money

Posted by Les Becker on January 27, 2008 in Finances |

Who doesn’t want it? Really? Liar. I spent years not giving a damn about money. It’s true, I did. I couldn’t care less, as long as I was “getting by”, and it never took much for me to “get by”. Still doesn’t. The difference now, is that I look at “getting by” a little differently. […]

Okay, So I’ve Jumped on Another Band-Wagon…

Posted by Les Becker on January 24, 2008 in Finances, Little Bits of Stupid |

I’ve been asked to write a post about Blogsvertise. Yes, it’s one of those services that pays bloggers to write about products, services, and websites. I’ve long been looking for a way to monetize Where the Walls are Soft, partially because I once was heavy into online marketing, proving to myself that it is possible […]

I Am a BAD Blogger.

Posted by Les Becker on January 3, 2008 in Finances, J.O.B. |

I don’t even have a photo ready to put up. I have about seven half-written posts that I had publish dates all set for, and I can’t seem to get anything finished. Started, yes – as usual, I’ve managed to start innumerable projects. Finished, not so much. I quit smoking on January 1st. Yup, I […]
