Yippeee, I did it! [View all]

Wrote the check. Filled out the slip. Stuffed 'em in the envelope. Put it in the mail.
When it's processed, my car will be PAID OFF!! HOOO-RAYYY!
Such a wonderful feeling! And I saved over $11,000 in interest paying a 6-year loan in under 9 months!

And tRump is on trial--what a great day! Hope everyone else is doing well!

You understand. If you pay $10k in interest and your total itemized deductions are only $3k higher than twodogsbarking Apr 20 #36
