Just wrote the check to pay the property taxes. I'll cruise on over to the court house later this morning and drop it off. Taxes not due until the second Monday in November, as always, and I used to wait until the very last hour to pay them. That was back in the day when the bank paid an honest rate of return for the use of my money and I tended to leave it with them so long as I could. Now, it matters not, and the County might could* use the money to meet an imminent payroll, or please a long-suffering creditor.
So today I will pay my property taxes.
*The phrase "might could" is used deliberately and correctly. Grammar police: pass on by.
