 May 1 passed without a word from me.

That's the two-year anniversary of this blog but I'm up to my hind end in work, unpacking and getting ready to go see Clare graduate in Boston. (I apologize for writing "hind end" for my sensitive readers.) 

These two years have been been a trip, baby. One that challenged every single facet of me, energy, intellect, perseverance, shit, sanity.

But I'm here and have been blessed along this long road far beyond my capability to understand. Friends and strangers have helped with money, places to stay, moving my stupid collection of books and typewriters and too much cooking equipment.

They have listened and read my stories and my whining.

There have been setbacks but those have always been outnumbered by joy.

While writing this tonight at a local drinking establishment, I talked with friends and we experienced bountiful laughter and closer friendship,

I'm now in a place where I sense stability as I haven't in some time. And I am welcomed.

I spoke to the local Rotary Club today, many of whom welcomed me a year after my arrival but quoted from past columns they remember. As someone who writes, my heart is warmed.

And as someone who considers himself a writer, tries to be a writer, still wants after half a century to be a writer, this blog still gives me succor. If people want to read my meandering missives, I'll fill that space.

The only misgiving would be that my obituary -- as editor I get 10 percent off but only kid gets to enjoy that benefit -- will include "homeless editor." It is my hope the obit starts with "good father."

And so I fly out to Boston Saturday to see my daughter graduate Sunday. She's promised to take me out to dinner Sunday and then I fly back Monday. I intend to ask when she visits me this summer, in God's County of the Wisconsin Nort'woods, she stay for awhile, even up to a month. She can write in the quiet of our place, perhaps joining me in writing together. I'll also ask her to write a blog post here about what she's learned of me from this blog -- essentially a public diary during this troubled time.

I'm going to blog through the trip to Boston as I haven't been on a flight since 2010 and about the import of seeing my little newborn turn into this intellectual powerhouse a mere 21 years later.

I promise you I will sob for most of the trip so I'm investing in facial tissues and will continue to hydrate. With what I will not promise.

These two years have been the most amazing in my life, for good and bad reasons.

Yet I'm here and look forward not just to the next two years will be but the next two days and two weeks and two months.

A reader sent me a link that the phrase "the Ukraine" is outdated so I shall not use it again. (As an aside, I'm outdated generally.)

Peace unto Ukraine and peace and clarity unto all of you my brothers and sisters.

  2. XAP Credit Solution remains my best guy ever. I had lots of collections, charge offs and an eviction that is 2years old. Lexington, despite all the money, couldn't help until I contacted xapcreditsolution@ gmail. com and made some financial commitment. In less than a month everything was fixed and my FICO score was raised to 810. I was able to apply for a loan with PENFED Credit Union. All thanks to XAP.

  8. I remember in 2023, my credit score was terrible, I had so many collection accounts and would not approve of anything. I had rental debt, charge offs, student loans, tax liens from my credit report. I was then introduced to DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION by Michael Wayne who is my attorney. I immediately contacted them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / +1 713 396 5299. Within 9 days my credit score went up from 571 to 801 across the 3 credit bureaus and I’ve been able to get a home loan and eligible for several credit cards. I will always recommend DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION to anyone who desires to have a better credit life. Cheers!

  9. Hi, guys, let’s talk about the FICO score, those important 3-digit numbers that determine your quality of life no matter your status. Well earlier in 2023 I had a really bad credit score. I would often surf the net searching for real hackers that could help increase my credit score. Well as expected I got swindled twice. Eventually I gave up my search and concluded that it wasn’t possible for hackers to increase credit scores. The good news is that I read on a credit forum about DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION. I was pessimistic at first, but I decided to give it a try. To my greatest surprise, within 9 days DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION was able to boost my score to an excellent score, not only that they added some positive remarks on it. In conclusion, if you have a bad credit score you might want to contact them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM OR Call (713) 396-5299.

A high FICO score is very important and this company to the best of my knowledge understands how to make it happen, how do they do it? I don’t know but honestly, they did a great job of getting my credit score up to 806 excellent score. Not just that they also removed negative items on it and wrote some very positive ones.

  11. Hello guys my name is Lynne Riley, a few weeks back my credit score was nothing to write home about, my credit score was around 520 TransUnion, 517 Equifax and 600 Experian. I had a lot of collections, old phone bills, negative rentals on my rental report. I was on a credit forum in reddit when a lady wrote about DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION how they got to clear her debts and increase her score to a high 800. I quickly contacted them for repair assistance, to which I got a response. To my greatest surprise DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION cleared out all negative items on my credit report and increased my score to 801 TransUnion, 808 Equifax and 811 Experian. They also posted a very good trade line on my report. They are the best of the best. Hit them up via email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM OR Text +1 (713) 396-5299 and have your credit fixed today.

  12. I had eviction removed from my credit report, and I still can’t believe DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION raised my credit to 801 TransUnion, 805 Equifax and 809 Experian within 8 days. He also helped me apply for a PPP loan with the sum of $40K which reflected in my bank account with low interest rate. I saw a lot of good comments about his good works, and he responded swiftly. Hire him now: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / Or Call +1 (713) 396-5299.

  13. Hi all! I’m 29 years old. My credit started to tank around 2021 when expenses were outpacing my income. I got a lot of loan offers and foolishly took them, adding more expenses to my income. Didn’t help that I was in a relationship with someone who I greatly outnumbered and took on the burden of the bills to seem fair. Won’t be doing that again. I had a lot of collections and charge-offs from personal loans and CCs. From looking at my Experian I had several charge-offs that became collections and few that didn’t. Which all brought down my credit score to a low 586 score. I needed advice on rebuilding my score back to 700s. DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION came through for me, my credit report cleaned up with all negative entries removed; charge-ffs and collections wiped out. Now: Jan 2024 my score is Equifax 801| TransUnion 808| Experian 811. Yes, it feels good to have a worthy credit profile. I want to use this time to appreciate DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION for bringing me out of a bad credit report that made my life miserable. My goal is to also obtain higher limits 5K-10K on CC which has finally been achieved. I’m happy to have come across DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION here, you can contact them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM Or text 1+ (713) 396 5299.

  16. I was in the process of purchasing a house and they were something that was hurting my credit. Some of these items that were hurting my credit are: Affirm (30 days late 3/2023), Affirm (30 days late 4/2023), First Premier (scheduled to be removed 3/2024), Rent Recovery (Paid Collection) Never received prior notification of a debt. I asked this community because you guys are awesome with your advice, and I have been successful. A guy named David from this community spoke well about a credit expert called PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST who helped him remove medical bills and raised his score to 780 in a few days. I emailed him on: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM and he responded ASAP asking me to text him on his personal number +1 (409) 231-0041 for further discussion. Well, I did and eventually got started with the project with him. I was amazed after a few days he pulled through for me and removed all my late payments and raised my score to 811. I just purchased the home of my dream, all thanks to him and his team for helping me. Contact him with the above email and number for your credit repair.

  17. Today I called PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST and asked to have my BK7 removed from my CR, and they did. It was scheduled to fall off next year. So that’s that. A horrible chapter in my life but I’ve come out on top. So much wiser, better prepared for the future, and peace of mind where finances are concerned. Thanks to this forum and the good folks that spend their time here to share their experience and share the knowledge they got from PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. Thank you PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST for all your assistance, guidance and cheerleading. Especially in the early days of my rebuild. With my scores now in the 800’s I’m tempted to app just to know I’d likely be approved, but there’s nothing I need right now. A sincere thanks to all of you! Contact them by email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM / Or call +1 (409) 231-0041.

  18. I had a couple of things happen in 2021 that caused me to get extremely behind on several bills. I had about 3 credit cards end up in charge-off status. Only one of those cards was ever sent to collections and I have since paid this before the collection ever hit my credit. 2 of the cards were through Capital One. 1 of the 2 were sent to collections. The unpaid one has been referred to an attorney and kept in house, although I received documentation that the attorney was dropping the lawsuit against me. My credit was hovering at around a 620 Equifax FICO and a 618 Experian FICO. I had so many lates from these three accounts. This forum gave me some hope regarding PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST came through for me and increased my scores to 801 Equifax, 806 TransUnion and 811 Experian and deleted all the negative items on my credit profile including charge offs and collection. If you need a hacker to fix your credit issues within 6 days, PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST is good to go. They get the job done as quickly as possible.

  19. After my marriage 3 months ago, I applied for a home loan, so that my wife and I could move to a better apartment, but I got a negative reply, which I was told was because of my credit score. When I pulled my score, it was below average. I have a $10,000 student loan, some credit card debt, charge-off and an eviction. PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST helped me erase all the above negative reports and boosted my score to excellent within 6 days. I’m recommending them to any person in need of credit assistance. Contact them by email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM OR their mobile: +1 (409) 231-0041.

  20. I’ve come to the point in my life where I realize the importance of having good credit. So, this year, when I received my tax return, I made it my goal to rebuild my credit. I’m very happy that I contacted PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. I had one credit card with a high balance, and it was through Synchrony Bank (PayPal credit card). I was always on time for payment but paid the minimum due monthly. I went from a balance of $700 to $515. Then, they lowered my CL from $900 to$530, putting me at a 97% credit utilization rate and lowering my score by over 10 points. I was extremely upset when I found out that my CL was lowered for no apparent reason. I decided to pay off the remaining balance. The synchrony Bank (PayPal CC) claimed that they lowered my credit limit because I didn’t own any real estate, but that wasn’t a requirement when I first opened the account in July 2023. My credit score was EX 585, EQ 580, TU 587 (Fico 8). My goal is to improve my credit score and maybe even push it over 700. Few days after I contacted PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST, they increased my credit score to EX 811, EQ 806, TU 802 and improved my credit profile by removing charge offs, collections and inquiries. I sincerely acknowledge their relentless efforts and urge you to contact PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST for any credit related issues. Contact info: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM Or Call +1 (409) 231-0041.
