Bumble Bee Tuna

Taken one morning on my way to school. This is the Rock River in Janesville on River Road.  It was a foggy morning and the water was very calm.

School is progressing.  Financial Aid is not. The final word came down that I will not get any aid this semester. I'm $500 in the hole for Calc and if I drop the class they'll add another $700 to it.

Damned if I do, Damned if I don't.

And they won't let me register for classes until I pay the $500. My only course at this time is to pick up as much money as I can selling stuff that I don't need, selling plasma and keeping expenses low.  And Dave is digging into his 401(k).  I'm less than pissed that it needs to be done, but what can you do?

I've also applied for a credit card to put the $500 tuition on. That way I can pay off minimums, STILL register for next semester and pay it off with my grants next semester.

Still not happy about that either.

On a MUCH funnier note - Dave and I watch Duck Dynasty. My BIL turned it onto it, saying it was funnier than heck. Yes, it is funny.  The epsiode where Willie's Son, John Luke is recovering from dental surgery has started a new trend here.  One night last week, Dave rolled over - and in his sleep -touched my arm and said, "Bumble Bee Tuna." It was hilarious.  Now ...I've told everyone he did this. So now I tease him that Bumble Bee Tuna is his term of affection for me.  Every once in a while I turn to him and say, "Bumble Bee Tuna"
