So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Brother, can you spare a dime?

Or maybe $5,300 to $8,500?

Perhaps, there is a sugar daddy out there in the North Texas area who might like an almost-40 MILF? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Our AC unit died around the middle of October, but no worries as Texas is mild this time of year. Well, March is slowly approaching and with it comes the sun again. *Now, I'm singing George Harrison* But, I digress.

We know we need to get it done before the companies start jacking up the prices. I started getting bids to have the AC unit and furnace replaced. OH.MY.GOSH. First bid was $8,500. Second bid is $5,300. I have another guy coming out on Friday for his bid. I wonder if I could sell a kidney or something?

    Electric Companies often finance replacements (especially energy-efficient models) for homeowners who have good standing with them.

    Check with yours to see if the option is available.

    You could always do like the guy here in Houston did. When they busted him in downtown for panhandling they found something over $7000 on him, and poor thing was sleeping in the shelters and everything. Guess you could say he knows how to save a dime. Also, check with Hud, they've got some links that if you're boosting your energy efficiency they help sometimes, something called weatherization, but that probably depends on income too. Sorry, can't give you any more info than Hud, but it's a start.

    Do you know about the Texas Veterans Land Board? They offer home improvement loans of up to $25,000 to Texas veterans. They run a credit check but it cannot be used to turn you down. The main thing is a DD214 showing that you served 180+ days on active duty and entered/left the service from Texas (12 months residency before applying also counts). See http://www.glo.state.tx.us/vlb/vhip/index.html for all the details.

    Forgot to mention that Texas also grants 120 free hours of tuition and some fees at all state colleges/universities to Texas veterans who have used up or are no longer eligible for their GI Bill funds.

    Hell, I'd pay for it.

    If I had the money.
    If I wasn't married.
    If AoD wouldn't kick my ass.
    If I could remember what MILF means...
