    Hal, (in red above). That's what I told Lon and he got, well, you know. I told him that, by know, everyone in the forum knows he's been "financially secure" for years upon years. The cars, the places he's been to. All of that cost money, including where he lives.

    Well, I had a rather high priced walking horse. Does that count?

    I done both a "Like" of your post. My wife actually was the same way, when it came to managing income and savings. As for me, I had a fairly low "lower income", but that was my fault. I always wanted a nicer vehicle than I had, but just couldn't afford it. IOW, no credit and low paying jobs.

    As a very young child my parents had a 37 Plymouth with running boards. My mother always talked about that car.

    The 1930's was Depression Time and many people did not have a car or a job. We lived in Newark, New Jersey in a apartment and both my parents worked.

    My mother, who just turned 98, grew up during the depression, and didn't learn to drive until she was almost 40. Bought an early Corvair (remember those?) with an automatic transmission. She could never learn to drive a manual transmission car because there were 3 pedals and she only had 2 feet.

    Okay, back to the thread topic...
