Just thankful

My wife and I were just discussing our childhoods and how poor we were. She thought a large can of Dinty Moore stew for five was proof, until I told her about the Saltine soup we had one night per week! If you have a "world view" please know you are all in the wealthiest 10%. so to have a car, truck, and 3bikes in the garage....well I'm just really blessed.

Yes, be VERY thankful. I've been to India.....gives you a new perspective of what poor really is.

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Yeah, we're absurdly rich. And free. Hell, we WASH stuff with potable water. And we can speak our minds. Very lucky, indeed.
