Solace On a Low Budget


Feeling blue? Expecting a visit from the termite inspector? No way to pay except a credit card?

We are expecting such a visit, though I hope we’ll muster up some other way of paying. Though we’ve been making substantial inroads, lately our credit card debt has been increasing. Yes, increasing. Each frugal bone in my body sheds a spartan tear at such a time — to flagrantly mix metaphors.

In any case, the wife is reading Orwell’s Down and Out in Paris and London, and I can attest it is one of his most entertaining books. It describes a period where he lived as a bum, and how that affected his mind, outlook, health.

At five bucks or library cost you can’t go wrong.
