Fun Monday March 9
Sayre is hosting Fun Monday this week.
So here's da rules:
What are you and your family doing to deal with the current economic situation
on a personal level? Obama's got a plan for the nation, but how do you/will you
deal with your own economic stress?
Obama doesn't feature in our economic plans much here in Australia, we have
Kevin... that sounds like a bit of a lame name for a leader doesn't it.
Kev has joined the frenzy to see who can throw the most money at the problem
in the hope that it will go away, trouble is when giving handouts along with a
plea to spend up to help the nations economy and at the same time talking of
recessions and tough times ahead the tendency is for people to sock it away for
the rainy day they have been warned about.
OK that covers the general population... I'm a bit more patriotic than that,
(read, I'm something of a spend thrift who can't resist a bargain!!!!)
So as things have got tougher and the stores have been bundling their stock
out at bargain prices I've been buying/spending just like I've been asked to.
We perhaps should take a moment to be serious here... I live alone in a house
that I own which is filled to overflowing with the things that I want/need, so in
fact there isn't a lot of things on my want list.
I am hoping to leave my children a few trinkets when my time here is up, so I'm
really just getting by in the best way I can and putting aside any small excess
that happens along for the stated purpose.
I could easily have written about the habits of a lifetime not catering to waste
or extravagance... having been around since 1936 there isn't a whole lot of new
stuff they can throw at you that you haven't had to dodge or learn to live with
already, so to a large degree its "business as usual" until things calm down
again, as they always seem to!!!!!
Just in case anyone thinks this post has got a little morbid, check out this one.
