Means Ret. Military won’t get one either. Since we both are over 65, he is Ret. SCPO, even if I used the just as costly Commissary for food, We’d still have to eliminate or RATION a lot of fresh foods and beef, some pork, cereals, eggs, milk as these are the food groups that have risen the most.
It is only because gas has gone down we have made the past few months with out extreme rationing. As both of us have had more than usual medical trips we’ve had to make. And since we live in the boonies it takes a 60-90 min round trip drive for a doctor’s visit or testing. Only thing we have close is a Rehab place. Refuse to use a GP as they have snot nosed sick kids in their waiting rooms that don’t know what a Kleenex is or to cover their mouths when they cough. They touch every thing with their germ infested hands.
I love kids, BUT I also raised them and know that they are a big spreader of germs once school starts, along with bringing home Lice they didn’t have when they went to school. DUH, try a head inspection as they walk in the door, turn away those that are infested to be treated before they come back to school would cut that issue down.
