Not naive, but in shock like the rest of us. Someone is paying these astronomical prices but not me- I'll hold out. I've worked too hard for my damn money. Had the day off yesterday, hit Costco and thought about grabbing a couple of steaks to grill up for the Wife when she got home. Filet mignon $23 lb., top sirloin $13 lb. Someone must be buying it. I tossed some chicken in the basket. Yeah I have the money but it's back to that threshold word again and I'd reached it. Sorry to hear about your condition. Live each day to the fullest!
