on material things. Been reading in the local paper and even on this forum and I think that I am the only one..that feels poor !!:cow: Husband is now retired and I work a couple days a week now and people sure do seem to make a $l00,000 or more in todays world. My sister goes to the mall and "grazes" through the stores and buys this or that when the feeling strikes her and when she gives me her "old" towels for our animals in the barn..they go into my bathroom. I feel very fortunate in so many ways that I really don't or shouldn't complain at all..but I think I am the minority sometimes.
