Friday – Bring on the Weekend!

I hope everyone is ready for the weekend! My family and I will be spending some quality time with Jocelyn who is in town. Albert is making preparations in case he needs to rescue us from any Pirates, Crime Syndicates, or covert International Espionage Agencies. We do get into some interesting situations…

Nothing better than time with family and friends. A comment made by Coachdaddyblogger reminded me of how lucky I am to have such a wonderful son. In tribute to my son’s patience with his insane mother – I thought I would share a photo of him enduring my parenting.

This is a picture of his birthday dinner.

I can’t believe how tall he is – my baby boy.

Welcome to the World Little Mia!

Hello Cranky readers!

I had a great weekend with my beloved family! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.

We had a new addition to our little group with the birth of little Mia on Friday morning! Congrats to her wonderful parents John and Nancy and my sweetheart Albert on the birth of his beautiful niece.

As it is never to early to start thinking about you future, I have been explaining to little Mia that she has a great future as a tax accountant. I realize she is only three days old however I could tell Mia was very interested…

Mia’s mother is very understanding about Auntie Gez and her tax law obsession.

Let the week begin!

One Year of Taxing Crankiness…

WordPress just informed me that today is the one year anniversary of this, my humble blog.

On this momentous occasion – the first anniversary of the internet sensation that is my obscure blog. I would like to thank all of you who made Cranky and Taxing such an amazing, astounding success.

To those four people who actually read or watch this drivel… thank you. To those who actually follow me – you are my raison d’ĂȘtre. I love you more than Chocolate Covered Frozen Key Lime Pie on a stick. (Which is a lot! Cause that stuff is awesomeness x infinity)

Well I do exist to do actual work as well – but the sentiment is somewhat valid. Well I think it is… Anyhoo…
I hope year two will be more fun-filled and wacky!

Thanks Again!

Gez

The Joys of Friendship…

I am blessed to call some truly remarkable people friends – but I am exceedingly fortunate to have my true friend, Jocelyn.

She is an amazingly talented writer and all around exceptional person.

Recently, I recorded some of our conversations while testing video recording software. When watching the videos later I realized something profound – the two of us are insane.

In this conversation Jocelyn was relating her vacation adventures with her Dad and another mutual friend Mel in North Carolina.They were traveling in a tiny economy car which wasn’t a remotely comfortable ride in the best of circumstances – especially with four people crammed together. Despite the challenges of a microscopic automobile and horrible road conditions Jocelyn’s Dad decided he must find the fabled waterfalls of Asheville North Carolina. It is important to note that once Jocelyn’s father has decided on something he wants to do no amount of discomfort or threats to personal safety will keep him from his objective.

This video is the story of one man’s unwavering effort and his daughter’s patient suffering. It was very difficult to find five minutes of coherent dialogue that didn’t contain generous amounts of profanity. (we are both of Irish lineage)

I felt perhaps some readers/ watchers might be amused by the tale.

Enjoy!

Also – I may have something to say about the recent IRS scandal soon…

Avast Ye Scurvy Dogs!

Hi all -

I had just enough time to make a quick video on a subject that comes up a lot – the tax laws that apply to finding treasure.

I know, I know! It’s about time!

I didn’t really edit this video’s captions, so if there are typos, sorry – I’m pretty busy!

Enjoy!
