37. Speaking of yurts,

I really like them. Part of my personal long range disaster plan - which I hope never comes to pass - would be to rebuild with either a yurt or dome house either one. If anything bad enough happened to trigger much insurance, you'd be starting from scratch anyway. This 100-yr-old house would cost over a quarter mil to rebuild, and you can bet I don't have that kind of insurance! I'm in the slow process of archiving irreplaceable family photos and storing them in a variety of places including the Cloud. Anything else except life itself can be replaced.

At my age I need less than before too. For instance, clothing. A few outfits appropriate for church and funerals at any season, and the rest is purely circumstantial. When I worked in health care I developed a tremendous fondness for non-medical style scrub tops, and when I counted those recently it turned out I'd accumulated 44. In summer I stick almost exclusively to sleeveless smocks (just counted 14 of those) and shorts, in winter fleece tops and bottoms mostly. If it all went away, I could do fine with a lot less.

What my greedy little heart really wants now is a $5K ELF. Now that would be a very practical expenditure!
