I paid $4.60 for milk last night. it's short of highway robbery i tell ya.
I did this just today!! I found sort of a funny picture and just had to share it. It's funny but it's not. It's sad the direction that we're headed right now. Anyway, I tried to make light of it with my picture I posted today. It can be viewed at http://armyfamilyok.wordpress.com/2008/07/21/signs-of-the-times/ and let me know what you think about the sign!!
