Wondering

It is now said that the median income for Minneapolis is $140,909 annually. My mama has never even made $30,000. Which is why we do not live in a nice home, and why mama does not have a car, and when she did, she has never owned a new car. It is why my mama has not gone on a real vacation in many years. It is why we are mostly penniless right now. We went through everything the last time mama got laid off. The people who are making this income are the ones that are not hiring mama. And probably do not understand how someone would have to do without a car and doesn't have their own home and doesn't go on vacations. The people who do have all this stuff simply want more, so they don't pay their employees enough.

Well, off that soap box.

They also say that when you come to Minnesota, bring warm clothes. They got that right. Glad I have my furrs. Glad mama has warm socks for her cold feeties.

My sweetie and the Evil Cat came over to snuggle. They were both gentlemen. And my sweetie made a sign for me (*blush*) but nasty blogger would not let me comment on his blog.

Stay warm, everyone. We are off to catch up on other things.

Love to all,

Hi Sugar Pie, I'm sorry it is so cold where you are. I'm glad you have furs and your mommy's slippers too.

My mommy's friend got a jobbie at a senior citizen community doing some administrative work. She lives downtown and doesn't have a car either (since she lives downtown she takes the bus or rides with friends). Mommy thought it might be a good idea for your mommy since she likes to help people.

It was nice hanging out with you Sunday. Tell your mommy "hi" *kitty paw wave*
