Benefits With Friends

I don’t begrudge anyone some fun or how good it is to attend charity events, like the Central Coast Wine Classic advertised in your paper last week. Maybe I’m out of touch with the rest of the world, but in the next two to three years, when I retire on my big $15,000 per year local government retirement, maybe then I can afford to attend some of these now fairly pricey events. They sound like fun and now that I’m almost priced out of Santa Barbara County Bowl events, I just might go to one.
