Some parts of the country and some crops have done great. Others, not so much. We had a couple of bad storms this summer that were literally gully washers. Wheat was knocked down, making it harder to combine and more likely to sprout. Soybeans were under water in the fields.

I can't think of a single thing in the grocery that hasn't gone up - some pretty dramatically. We're okay, we don't really spend extravagantly, keep cars until well over 100,000 miles, don't go out a lot. A simple life, I guess, is our norm, so easy enough to live within our means. It's not us I worry about, it's our (adult) children and grandchildren.
