DEPOSIT, n. A charitable contribution to the support of a bank.
2010 Update: A portion of there allocated to the establishment of a new here.
Planning for retirement, Doug?
Deposit: The sediment of fat around my hips. It just deposits itself there. Possibly related to the contribution of food into my mouth. nah. No relationship there. I'm so sure.
Hey Doug, is this our last issure of Walking Ambrose as we know it? If so I am glad to have found it. Jammie Dawn (we stay in touch) told of you on her blog back when.
Deposit: I am wondering where those foreigners holding our bonds will put their money now that our treasury is 'buying' some back. $600 Billion of newly printed money will go someplace.
Maybe they will buy more of our goods now that they will be cheaper along with the cheaper dollar.
Or deposit some directly into our banks? Will the government now burn the bonds or will it repay the treasurey (burn is my guess)?
Did you ever buy back an IOU from someone with your own money? I.e. forgive them.
Ha ha TLP - that is one definition I hadn't thought of.
Deposit: Something my bank account sees far too little of.
With me, of course!
Waking Ambrose made a permanent deposit to the repository of my memory. This blog will always be with me.
I will miss it very much.
I can't imagine wanting to blog when there are no others who make me use my brain as this one does. Sure you won't reconsider Doug?
* 1 cup water
* 3/4 stick butter (6 tablespoons)
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 1/8 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup flour
* 1 cup eggs, about 4 large eggs and 2 whites
* Vegetable oil, for frying
* Powdered sugar, for topping
Boil water, butter, sugar, and salt together in a saucepan. Add flour and work it in until it is all incorporated and dough forms a ball. Transfer mixture to the bowl of a standing mixer and let cool for 3 to 4 minutes. With mixer lowest speed, add eggs, 1 at a time, making sure the first egg is completely incorporated before continuing. Once all eggs have been added and mixture is smooth, put dough in a piping bag fitted with a number 12 tip. Heat about 1 1/2 inches of oil in a heavy pan. Pipe dough into oil, making a free-form lattice pattern; cook until browned, flipping once. Remove cake from oil, drain on paper towels, and top with powdered sugar. Continue until all of the batter is used.

I feel as though I should break into

Planning isn't really what I'm doing, Nessa.
TLP. what the mouth enjoys, the hips will wear pleasantly.
You bet, Jim, for those who don't read the Saturday stories. this was it. I'm glad Jamie Dawn introduced us as well. See you around your blog.
Terry, my account seems to enjoy its twice monthly temporary changes of balance. Like a comatose man sneezing.
JJ, why not?
Ariel, I think your shadow answered correctly.
Is that where they keep those, Actonbell? In the riverbank and under the sea?
Me too, TLP. We'll have more fun together, though.
Terry, are you really going to hold me responsible if you stop blogging?
Peace. Bear, and thanks for the memories see you around.
