HARD TIMES ARE COMING
metalman here, for years i wrote about the black cloud coming, buy gold, silver
oil etc. to protect your lifesavings.
most of us worked hard most of our lives, most are still working with no choice
most of us lost our nest egg of savings including myself in the high tech boom, trusting
our investment companies, banks, only to find out the hard way, you don't trust them period!!! what i learned the hard way, your health is number one, having health with no fear is the answer to ride out any storm.
i'm blessed that i lived in verdun, most don't know that verdun was a training ground for hard times.
most of us lived on very little, most of us were not overweight, we shared our stuff
candies, cigs, beer, whatever we had we shared to our verdun buddies.
i personally think we had a better lifestyle living on flats, sharing 1 bathroom with 5 family members or more.
just look in a mall and see the people all over weigth, over loaded with credit debt
buying homes, cars.on and on.
as a little verduner and other little verduners, we would make our own job, back then
you get that little wooden wagon and deliver groceries, greet the customer, take there order, chat with the customer, carry the boxes of groceries up 3 landimgs of stairs
then the 25 cent silver piece, yes real money, back then you get a comic, a bottle of coke, candies, comic 12 cents, coke 7 cents, 2 cent return on empty bottle, 5 cents for a bag of humpey dumpy chips.
and stiil get change from the 25 cent peice.
verdun gave the best education, we had no easy credit, we were hard working
families, most of us had vacations in july on our balconies and had a great time.
sharing that pepsi, fries, or sharing that 24 of molson.
it will be a shock for many in the next few years, myself its the good old days coming back.
