Sorry, if you were maybe expecting this to be about sex. Hate to disappoint you folks! What I’m talking about is a bargain! No matter our financial situation in life, I think most people will agree with me, that finding a bargain ranks right up there with winning the lottery. It is a real andrenaline rush for most of us.
So, Hubby and I quite often take little road trips, on weekends, to different places and different States. As I mentioned before, we are well located. Don’t let the older people fool you. Marriages that last can still be exciting, well maybe not in the way your thinking, but there is a lot of life left yet, after the kids leave home. There definitely, is a life after 40, 50, 60, whatever age you are when they do leave. If you had a good marriage before the kids, and didn’t treat each other, like they were your worse enemy, or go into a thirty year pout, life is never better!
In a lot of ways I was lucky for having crippling arthritis in my late twenties to early thirties, as there is nothing like young children to keep us on our toes and jumping through the hoops. Now that everyone else is reaching the age, of physical health loss, that I was 30 years ago, I am an old pro.
No time here, for that bitching and moaning that drives us all nuts. We grow old as we grew young, and life is nothing more than an attitude, so if you know now that you are responsible for your own happiness, it can’t help but get better. However, if you get some kind of high out of playing the victim role, then I’m sorry, you need help. People SHOULD NOT crave sympathy!
There I go digressing, again. We picked Pierre, S.D. to explore today. Hubby was looking for a double pump action rifle. NO not to use on me. He is a life long hunter. I have collected antiques for 40 years and where ever we go, I check out antique shops, or thrift stores or pawn shops. Today I found a lovely, large size coral and detailed gold ring. At the time, I wasn’t too certain of the coral and neither was he but it definitely is marked 14 carart gold.
I brought it home and took a look at it under my special light, after cleaning it of course, and sure enough it is the REAL thing. Probably a $1800.00 ring, because of the size of the coral, as well as all the detail in the generous amount of gold, all for the grand price of $40.00! It made my day, to say the least! Have a nice night everybody!
