Tom1956, I have one up on you: I have NEVER in my life owned a car but have had a drivers' license continuously since 1966. My 'car' is public transport.
"Getting by' has, more or less, the same meaning for both of us (and many other readers who might be too hesitant to admit such). For some, financial 'ability' is an oxymoron and those with all the money they could possibly need oftentimes do not really understand that thought. Some time ago I posted about the high price of film and HALF the responders thought I was either crazy or misguided to assert such. I will say again: film prices, with few exceptions, are sky high. I am 63 and when I was growing up film prices were not even an afterthought to ANYONE because they were ALWAYS SO AFFORDABLE, EVEN CHEAP. (And Hershey bars were only 5 cents till I was about 13!) - David Lyga
