Words

Sometimes I write notes but then cannot complete the post, for whatever reason.eg

Speak speech. acknowledge. English American. http://thatssopants.blogspot.com/2011/04/dumbs-word.html

WHO

Private income. I don't know what it means, but it sounds like it will cost one money. Surely better to have a public income.

Self funded retiree.

Phrase I never heard when I was young, I am on a tram/bus/train.


Phrase I did hear when I was young, do you have the phone on (at home)

  1. I like the 'Pants' blog. Very deep.

    I thought a 'Private Income' was something you read or see in English books/films referring to a person with a job who is independently wealthy and not reliant of his/her salary.

    1. Bill, Pants is an excellent writer and a nice person as well.

      I think of private income as self funded retirees, but yes also those who don't have to work as they have income from rents or whatever. Public income is better, as it is not your own money. Well, I think that is where I was going with that.

    1. Gattina, we once had a private income then. Except more money went out than came in, until we sold it and it paid out our mortgage here

  3. You are in good company. I watched an old Seinfeld episode only this week in which he wakes from a dream, writes himself a note for follow up on something he has dreamt, only to find he cannot read his writing in the morning and can't recall what his note meant.

    1. Yes Victor. I have done that too. Meaningless scrawls written late at night, indecipherable in the morning.

  4. Private income and self funded retiree are something I would never be, never had enough money.

  5. And there I thought I was the only one to do that lol I've deleted so many blog posts because I had no idea where I was going.
    Ditto on investment properties costing more than come in and private means was often written on census to indicate people had income but not from recognised working positions.
    Take care

    1. Hi Cathy. I too have deleted a few that were impossible to do anything with, but not that many really. They tend to just hang around for a long time.

      Interesting about the census.

  6. Like Merle above, private income is something I can only dream of.

    1. As a friend's mother said to him when he asked her for a loan, 'son, have you thought of Tattslotto?'

      Our only hope of a private income.

  8. Red, it surprises me that there are so many comments. I connected with people who have a few drafts not quite ready. It was a post that took five minutes, unlike tomorrow's that is full of historical accuracy.
