Meals that used to cost me $6.00 including a decent tip are up to $10.00 and $12.00. Other items are going up commensurately. It’s called INFLATION.
Dadgummit, I’m trying to DEFLATE myself! This isn’t helping!! Even pints at Copper Creek have gone up from $3.25 to $3.50. Groan. So I drink fewer of them. Deflation rules!!
At least we don’t live in Uruguay, where at one time inflation was running roughly 200% a month. — That’s a lot of Cruzeros, folks.
Wheeling Cruzeros Rather Than West Virginia (they’re not as heavy!), Ort. Carlton in Ever-Expanding Athens, Georgia.
P. S. There is a Montevideo, Georgia on GA. 77 between Elberton and Hartwell, about 40 miles east of here. (It’s pronounced mont.VID.e.o.) Regretfully, it doesn’t have a post office.
