After all you could be alone collecting cats instead of old family photos if things were different.....

No matter how impoverished people were in family settings they always had the presence of mind to maintain their dignity fo baptisms, weddings, funerals and meeting with social superiors and authorities. This "politica" made the difference between being poor and being poor without social conscience. =Peter=
