THE REAL COST OF LIVING
We recently returned from the vet’s with the wife’s favorite cat – $200 dollars, and no guarantee the medicine would cure it. Then she had to go into hospital for knee-replacement surgery. You could say that she doesn’t need surgery, but, to her, gardening is as important as eating.
The bill for the last oil change said that the year-old car’s brakes need work. The cost of gasoline and electricity are mounting. The yearly ‘cost-of-living’ increase on my pension was 97cents/month. I feel the financial walls closing in.
Will we survive this retirement tunnel, or finish, begging on the street?
