....at least for the next ten days. In a few minutes, I'll be driving wifey to the bus. She is going back to Chicagoland for her high school class reunion. Very excited. I refuse to go. #1 reason, I never again want to go back to Chicago or suburbs. It's where I grew up and things have changed. Too many roads, shopping centers, industrial centers, traffic, pollution, high crime rates, everything costs too much, etc. Last time we were there we stayed at an 11 story high resort motel. From the top floor, looking out, I didn't recognize a thing. And this was exactly the neighborhood where I grew up. Where the hotel stood used to be fields I hunted pheasants in. Enneyhow...while she is gone, I'll clean out the freezer. That's how I eat. Lots of single items in there once 'saved'. If still edible, I eat. If not the raccoons will enjoy. I get to drive her car and save some gas money compared to my truck. I'll stay busy, mostly in shop. Oh...#2 reason, I have no desire to compare stock investments, kids going to expensive colleges, Caribbean vacations, ownership of fancy condos, expensive cars, etc. with my status in life. Might be an excuse, but I put value on other things less materialistic.
