Trouble, love, personal and financial
(Pictures.... animals in trouble, People should take the cats advice, read, especially instructions)
Over the years I have known folk who no matter how hard they worked, they could never seem to get ahead. They lived from payday to payday. I know of cases where it was the ‘buy now enjoy it, pay later’ (sucker) Ads.
There are many problems in life that are ‘self-inflicted’. Many times it is ‘not understanding the simple Financial fact that it is ‘IMPOSSIBLE’ to ‘borrow’ yourself out of debt. I am afraid our government has taught many of our citizens just the opposite, by trying to borrow the USA out of debt. OUCH.
In marriage there are too many ‘self-inflicted’ errors. I see one of these as ‘man’s work’ and ‘woman’s work’ mind set, in both sexes. It is easy, if you are old, to see how this came about. Many parts of our great country sustained the citizenry by farming. House hold chores were enough to keep a ‘woman’ busy 12-14 hours a day. Animal care, hunting and tilling the soil was a sunup to sundown job for the man. Both jobs were tough, but they did it.
Pearl Harbor infamously came around and women went to work in factories because the men were off to war. When the men returned, many women kept on working and we became more a nation of mama and daddy’s working.
UH oh, he is in trouble!
Like my blue nose?
That produced the ‘Archie Bunker’ syndrome, the man sitting listening to the radio while the woman, who had worked 8 hours herself went into the kitchen to ‘fix supper’. That has never been fair but was accepted, for a while.
Over the years some of us men never learned, and the divorce rate climbed. The marriage problems were many times self-inflicted because of ‘the man’s ego’. Many men decided they would not do ‘women’s work’, and later learned the hard way by keeping house themselves. A survey lately found men washed and changed their sheets 3 or 4 times a year (honest) !!!!! (Men don’t want to wear out the sheets)
