Medicare ... a nasty word!! Unfortunately I'm turning 65 and my government health insurance is dropping me. I realize I only worked there for 23 years, but I wouldn't have stayed unless I thought the health insurance and retirement would be worth putting up with the bureaucratic bull I had to live through all those years!! Anyone with a government job, knows what I'm talking about!!
Now, because those dummies can't balance their own bank account, let alone the Countys, they are cutting out most, if not all, County-paid health benefits for retirees. They are dropping their portion of my health insurance costs from $388 to $100 a month. Of course if I was born in February instead of May, I would be getting $150 a month. I spent an hour in their office today, and no one could explain the reasoning for that. I totally can't wait until the Board of Supervisors (who have rice for brains) retire and get their $100 a month to pay for medical coverage and perscriptions. I'm thinking I should burn through my savings faster than I planned, so I can be on the government roll, sit in my rocking chair and drinking beer on the porch!! Okay, step AWAY from the soapbox!!
At least the RV updates bring better news, sort of. The dryer manufacturer recommended Fresno RV for repairs to the dryer.
The windshield wipers didn't work out as well. Here's the old ones.
Over the years, I have been lucky enough not to have lots of these type problems. I cruised along for a long time with little or no stress in my life ... lucky me. Life always changes however, and lately I've been overrun with bad service and people taking advantage. If it weren't for my puppies and RV friends, I think I'd be in the looney bin by now!!! I am slowly learning however, that I just have to take it one problem and one day at a time ... and be persistent!! Eventually, I will get back to the carefree days ... or maybe not, now that I have a rental and a motorhome!!! My new mantra is NEVER GIVE UP!!!
