A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee.
'What's the matter, dear' she whispers as she steps into the room, 'Why are you down here at this time of night
The husband looks up from his coffee, 'It's the 20th Anniversary of the day we met.
She can't believe he has remembered and starts to tear up.
The husband continues, 'Do you remember 20 years ago when we started dating, I was 18 and you were only 16,' he says solemnly.
Once again, the wife is touched to tears. 'Yes, I do' she replies.
The husband pauses The words were not coming easily. 'Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car'
'Yes, I remember' said the wife, lowering herself into the chair beside him.
The husband continued. 'Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, "Either you marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20 years
'I remember that too' she replied softly.
He wiped another tear from his cheek and said "I would have gotten out today."

Bob when i discuss with anyone how life is harder now for poor people i point out that if you needed a couple gallons of gas to make it to payday in the '50's you could just scrounge up 50 cents from under couch cushions. I did it several times. You can't scrounge the $5 it takes today.

There`s a lot more to pay for these days... whining about no money to spend, an empty fridge, a piece of month left when the money is gone, but wearing an $800,- I-phone like nothing else matters...I dunno

Devaluation is crazy but the things people think they need is nothing less imo

I want to highlight what Dutch said.
"Devaluation is crazy but the things people think they need is nothing less imo"
If you use the dollar for your yardstick of value, you will get depressed and whine all of the way to your grave. Another angle to watch 'value' from is; it takes roughly the same amount of 'minutes of work' to buy a gallon of gas now as it did in the sixties. People whine about most things costing ten times as much now, but never think that they make ten times as much in wages; evening things out. Now, as Dutch says, we pi$$ away a lot more money on extras now than we used to.

People don't like to hear this, Mac. I know from personal experience.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
