  3. Great job Captain! Over $400 is a great haul. Looks like September was significantly higher though. Was that just the timing of payments that caused the discrepancy? All the best in 2018. Can't believe I'm writing that already.

    1. I'm glad you asked and it looks like that was an error on my part. I accidentally added the Flowers food dividend twice. Still my best month ever. It sure smooths out my chart too. I can't believe I didn't catch that sooner.

  8. Beautiful chart you have going on there, Captain! Congrats on a great month. I've been eyeing SO for myself. I need some utilities, but with rates going back up not sure if/when I'll make my move. Keep up the great work!

  11. Congrats on another successful month and getting that $400 mark again. That's a great and strong way to end 2017. Looking forward to following your progress in 2018.

  12. $400 in a single month is nothing to sneeze at for sure. That would pay for about 20% of many people's monthly expenses. Can't complain about that. Onward and upward!
