I think that I spend too much money on food. I decided to see what a realistic budget would be for a retired person. It was suggested that $70.00 a week would cover food  for a week. I feel like a failure.Did they mean for two people or one? Either way, I exceeded those expectations. Maybe they were not including bath products, dog food, and cleaning supplies in that budget. Or inviting people to dinner. That would break down to $10.00 a day for food. I guess I could do that if I gave it some real thought. My Mother in law use to say that she wished that there was a pill so that she wouldn't have to eat. Just take a pill and feel full .I am a kitchen type myself. I think food, read food , cook food and eat food. I like food. I go to grocery stores when I am traveling. I like to see what is on their shelves . That's probably why I have some strange things on my pantry shelves . I sometimes buy  things when I am traveling that I don't know what to do with when I get home. Like I have Pommagranite molasses in the fridge. It tastes like sorghum molasses. I will say this for it. Its different.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
