...indecent proposal

Talk about indecent! The convenience of paying bills online may seem to be a dream come true. Recently, checks have been debited from my account but don't seem to be reaching their destination. Late fees, stop payments and challenging discussions with vendors takes more and more time. Maybe I will institute a first of the month party. Every vendor can stop by for their payment, have a few martinis and everything will be fine. On this day in 1895, playwright, poet, and novelist Oscar Wilde was convicted of "committing acts of gross indecency with other male persons" and sentenced to serve two years in prison. Bet he had even more fun in the slammer. The headboard and swag fabrics are ordered and on their way. I also need to get some custom paints mixed to turn period furniture pieces into 'Chika' styled bedroom furniture. This will be fun. Maybe not as much fun as Oscar Wilde had in prison...but to each his own.
