Corona Bonus plans?

Post by S 854 » Thu Apr 02, 2020 12:27 pm

Curious as who’s gonna do what with their Pennies from Heaven...

My ‘05 pickup could use a couple new engine parts and a set of tires...

New mirrors for the Arctic (I’ve done all I can to keep the OEM ones functional)...

Maybe I’ll install a bathroom in Julie’s new greenhouse... :?

...or... the heck with all the above... $2400 would make a nice down payment on a ‘20 GearUp... :boogie:

What are your plans for the Corona Bonus?

I'll be banking the Economic Relief Payment, to preserve/use it for essential living expenses, consistent with the intent of the Federal legislation.

Mine is already spent! A large brake repair bill for one of the cars, four car insurance premiums due, and homeowners premium due. Maybe i will have some extra cash during round two, three or four of the bailout. I mean economic stimulus.

We are going to give it to programs that help others. I don't think of it as charity, its a hand up for those who were not as fortunate as we were. So many live pay check to pay check and this is a huge hit.

Nicer to have? Yes. But we have not been impacted like so many others. At least we can direct it to areas and entities we know do good work.

Others have needs and its not a judgement, far more of the pie went where it should not have.

While we are not amongst the Golden ones who retired with big bucks, we knew what we were in for as far as my quitting (not retiring) work.

Ergo, despite the retirement system collapsing behind me during my work career, we were fortunate with some things we did right and I quit dept free (which was a condition) -

I, like many senior drivers where I work have been volunteering 1 unpaid day off a week so low seniority driver's can work too. My wife has also been working fewer hours. We will be using it to replace our lost income.

Pay the !%&#! tax on my social security benefit.. .. . enjoy spending my contribution.

Of course, this all pivots on whether any of us actually see that money. Color me skeptical. 8)

I don't need it. It will go into my sock drawer for if/when my son and daughter in law need a hand up in this trying time.

However, that Extar EP9 9mm pistol caliber carbine that uses Glock mags may come in handy when the zombies come to loot my toilet paper stash. Oh, did I mention one of those can be had with a red dot and a light for about $500?

Currently, the Mossberg 930 semi auto 12 gauge is just going to destroy the walls and make a big mess, so in the end my son might appreciate my forethought concerning the house with regards to his inheritance.
