                         " What's that you say George ?"                    
                          " The president he said that Marie, I promise! It is in the paper
                       I'll show you as soon as we are on the train."
                        " More Taxes ? Don't they charge a body enough for
                      moving, eating, breathing?"
                           " Of course they do-it is pretty much the same everywhere."
                              " Not where our Martha lives! they have it good up there-"
                        " It is cold where Martha lives- you don't want to go there Marie,
                     be real."
                         " I just want to take that river cruise- the Fjords and all, the one that
                     was advertised in the paper a month ago, remember ?"
                         "Well start saving some more pennies Marie-Savings rates don't help
                    much at all anymore. -Here is the train, Let's try and get a seat on
                    the far side this time, Ok ?"

At their age the only sensible use for money is . . spend it.

I agree with *Trellissimo...of course, I'm one of "those" old people! Money only is good when used, or, like BEING SPENT!

Nice take on the prompt Izzy
