This is pay day for me but I am sending daughter and will stay home. I have really felt bad for several days and I had been thinking I might have to give up my poultry because it was almost more than I could do taking care of them but I do feel some better today.
I woke at 5 this morning and the temperature is 27 degrees this is a little warmer than yesterday.
I guess Fleta has arrived at work and is pretending to work and Betty is warming the car. Helen will be up thinking about what work she can do today. I am on the computer reading the news and trying to stay warm.
I have to make a list for daughter to get my wants from the grocery and I have to figure my bill and write the checks then it will be back to having no money. I will say lest you feel I am in a sorry shape financially that my income is more than I had when I worked for wage. I never was able to make enough money to pay my bills and went through those years with fear and trembling every day now I may not have much but I do have enough to live on.
I will tell you some thing about poor people you may not know, they feel down cast and inferior and feel that they don't measure up some how to the rest of the world. They feel so ashamed they can hardly hold their head up most days. Life is a struggle from day light to dark and many of the working poor find even unemployment as a relief for during those days they don't go to work they will not have to go out in the public and feel the scorn heaped on them by the public.
To be poor in this country is a sin and the poor are treated with contempt.
