The piece contains a lovely quote about a family that had just enough from a 1873 novel 'The Gilded Age' that I'd never come across. I think it describes the position that my boy and I are in.
Having only riches enough to be able to gratify reasonable desires, and yet make their gratifications always a novelty and a pleasure, the family occupied that just mean in life which is so rarely attained, and still more rarely enjoyed without discontent.
And for the Christian millionaire who won't feel secure until he has a billion in the bank, perhaps I could remind him of the words of the big beardy guy in a white dress.
Those robins around here are looking mighty fine and healthy at the moment without a pocketful of dosh!
