Yes, I Do Buy Green Bananas!

I know people that do not want to pay taxes anymore because their children are not in school and they don't go to the park anymore or maybe don't even drive. They have ceased to care about the future and all those generations that follow them. I find myself avoiding those people because they just make me depressed. I like to think about the future and, yes, I still buy green bananas.

My Future has a very young face! Three
of my 12 grandchildren with my husband and
I in Florence, Italy.
On the other hand I know so many people that do care about what their grandchildren or great-grandchildren will become and are willing to contribute time and even money toward what they will never see. And I suppose they realize that taxes are an investment in the future too. I certainly hope so.

As for me I still buy small plants and trees so I can watch them grow. I think that schools are the foundation for the future and if we don't pay for them, the community will fail. I like change and all that it brings. I honestly live as though I will see it come to fruition...who knows what the future will bring.

So I will continue to buy green bananas and small trees.  I think our future is very bright...that is a good thing.

  2. I agree with your view on taxes, in principle, but boy-oh-boy does it hurt when we have to write those checks. Anyway, regardless, I like your attitude!

    1. Thank you for that Tom. My husband was a school administrator, worked 10-12 hours a day and helped so many people realize their dreams. Yet, when it came to our school budget, people did not want to pay taxes. Their solution was to cut his salary. So for over 30 years we were asked to pay "their taxes" and still provide a wonderful education. It was a heavy load to carry. Yet, we have such wonderful memories and that is what matters.

    2. In a way, we wrote the check for everyone's taxes.
