Good morning all...

Let us run buy a scene that may happen. OK the school loans are massive. They can wait, get deferred, whatever. Now I ask you... what happens if one of the laboring to pay the bills off he or she gets ill? Hmm? What is she becomes pregnant and has to go on to bed rest, God forbid or has complications? Charges will wait patiently. I think not.

Even in the light of this cloudy morning, it looks like way too much debt. Now, I love real estate, have a place of my own, and am looking for another. I have made a tidy profit in the last few years off one place. At one time, my local bank wanted to give me the money to fix my 5 acre long driveway if I would "sign" over the house note to them as security. I told them I would stay with the holes in the drive.

Hey if they can pull it out-great. But the house note is new- just a few months and to put it up with a HEL?
Not me- I need to sleep at night.

Sometimes you need a kick in the pants, right?
