We must be the last people in the country, but we *still* haven't received our stimulus check yet. I confess, I already spent it (like the majority of Americans). But I already have a savings account (unlike the majority of Americans). We bought a new deep freezer because the old one had stopped cooling. It had lived forever -- almost. Great-Grandma Tollner had it since pre-1980, we think. She gave it up after she moved into a retirement apartment. We inherited it in 1995 with our first home. Best of all: It had a built-in ice cream freezer. What a bonus! I was the proud housewife who kept the freezer full of hormone-free beef raised on the prairie near Seneca and frozen fruits and vegetables from the organic co-op.
