Thinking about the Philipinos

Our family rented this huge two story in upstate New York for a couple of years, lots of good memories there.

Postscript on breaking 90....almost...an errant shot on the 18th kept me from the elusive goal. Next week.

As the returning golfers shared summer events, one gentlemen spoke of selling his family home and moving into a condominium, and when I asked how they disposed of the furniture in downsizing, he said they still have 3200 sq. ft. in the condo.

I belong to that generation and class where our streets were filled with homes with large families living in 13 to 15 hundred sq. ft. Our home when our kids were teens had 3100 sq. ft, and I loved the space.

My point is that we are a prosperous and blessed nation, and the shrinking middle class faces perhaps a future without this abundance if things don't change....and....nations like the Philipines live their lives with so much less, that the wind and water had very little trouble destroying the fabric of hundreds of thousands of families. May the help continue to flow as those poor people seek to rebuild.
