Now where am I going with this?if you diddn't get bored and leave it begs a simple question:
When it falls apart,and it will......who will be eating whom? ;D
Ponder well,are you a bandana or a cleenex?
A bandana can be used to mop sweat repeatedly,turn into a do-rag,wrap up your lunch and wipe your mouth when its done,can be used as a tournaquit,flag down help at a car crash,mark a load of lumber so some tailgater dosen't get a face full of it.....etc etc.

A kleenex is blown full of snot and tossed. ;D

I agree with most of your "me" things except I don't think I'd like the "quite life in the woods alone". I kind of like my quiet life in the woods that includes my husband, kids, and grandkids! And the rotisserie chicken? I hope you made that yourself from scratch, and preferably with a chicken you raised yourself! Just teasing you now! I know how you feel, annoyed with all the waste and frivolous lives. Makes me think of that old saying about Nero fiddling while Rome burned. It's burning all around us, and yet the party goes on...

Not that I think you should get a mortgage, but they are CHEAP now, wait until the next shoe of the nobama financial plan falls, skyrocketing inflation!

About that rotisserie chicken - - - straight from Walmart :p

MORTGAGE!? Perish the thought - No major debt here, and I don't wan't any. As long as property taxes don't get silly-stupid, I am comfortable in my little slice of Lower Sloburban Heck...... Three vehicles, only paying on one.

And yeah, that Publix rotisserie chicken ain't bad - new flavor - "Bacon Peppercorn" - Umm, ummm, good! :D
Didn't know Wally's made it too?

Wally's rotisserie chicken is delicious, gotta give 'em that much! The first superstore in NW Montana opened last week. 6 car wrecks the first day, just in the parking lot!!! They laid the parking lot out in multiple blocks of short aisles with dividers/curbs everywhere.
Glad I didn't need to stop for anything!
