PLACE:  My desk
SUBJECT:  Targus wireless keypad

As the accountant and CPA in my family, it has naturally followed that I am the one who does the tax returns, not only for me and HandsomeHusband, but for my dad, brothers and sister.  I don’t mind, their returns are fairly uncomplicated (except for those pesky multiple state tax filings they all have!).  My tools are a tax software program and most importantly, my wireless keypad.  I absolutely abhor using the row of number keys on the top of the standard keyboard - too cumbersome and it slows me down when inputting figures.  I much prefer the keypad, but alas, my notebook did not have one.  Thus my procurement of the wireless 10-key.  Definitely one of my smarter purchases.
