Nanny-Co -

W-a-y too rich for my blood! I down-sized seven years ago, and the 
thought of all that stuff and responsibility conjures up nightmares. 
Still, it was a beautiful sight, left to younger and more affluent folks.

I confess that when I was younger, I lusted after the latest and 
greatest, particularly on the electronics front. Given global warming 
and my evolution to senior status on the humanity front (and happy for 
the privilege), I find myself less inclined to buy anything. I even 
patch jeans to wear on the weekends when walking the arroyo with my dog. 
I'm repairing a 20 year-old bookshelf stereo that suits me just fine for 
listening to the radio while in the kitchen area. I somehow took the 
Story of Stuff <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GorqroigqM> to heart. 
Wish we could find a way to recycle plastic to repave roads - or some 
other beneficial outcome.

Anyhow, I just hope that the planet survives and serves our 
grandchildren well.
