Sounds like PERFECTION to me!!!!When we retire in 2-5 years (I think after 62 we will take it year-by-year) we want a 19-24' toy hauler RV... something that can haul out Can-Am outlander to adventure jump-off points, have setting up camp is a snap and never worry about sleeping dry, comfy, and not on the ground (seems to become a little more important after 60 ).
That’s actually low end for some of the luxury brands. Not that I paid that — or anything remotely close to it — for any of the Coach line that I have (the newest of mine is at least 15 years old and most I have are 30-40 years old with some even older) but wandering around Paris one rainy afternoon about 25 years ago I saw leather bags by some of the designers based there that were were a lot more than $3,000. They were gorgeous, and I enjoyed seeing them, but certainly they were not something I would ever want. I’m very happy with my little vintage collection. Some were gifts from my mother starting when I was in college and continuing after I was married. Some were birthday or anniversary or Christmas gifts over the years. Some I bought for myself — usually when I was traveling and looking for something that would always remind me of that city. All have lovely memories attached.
Lol you REALLY don’t want to know what bags like Hermès go for. About 5 years ago I was in Manila and I was able to pick up what’s called a “ghost shift” Hermès bag for a relatively low sum (way more than the typical knockoffs there, but worth it). Absolutely gorgeous leather. None of her friends reallly noticed the bag - they are not the high roller snobby crowd - and she wasn’t trying to show off at all. A few times in ritzy areas of town she said well-healed ladies would come up to her half in shock and asking to touch it lol
Mixed breeds have the potential to suffer from a wider variety of breed specific illnesses. Sticking to ethical breeders with good bloodlines is the way to go for a purebred. One thing I wouldn't spend money on though would be a so called "designer" breed, because a mutt is a mutt.I have also always had rescue dogs, all of them mixed breed. My conscience won't let me buy a pure bred puppy when there are so many lovely homeless dogs who need rescuing. They are far healthier as well.
Mixed breeds and mongrels are always healthier than pure bred dogs. I know so many people who had pure bred dogs who had many health issues.Mixed breeds have the potential to suffer from a wider variety of breed specific illnesses.

My only mixed breed died at 3 from cancer.Mixed breeds and mongrels are always healthier than pure bred dogs. I know so many people who had pure bred dogs who had many health issues.
Of all the dogs I have had and the many people I have known who had cross breeds and mongrels none had health issues and they lived to an old age. My five were v healthy and all lived to 13-15 years of age. Barely had to take them to vets despite the bad start that some of them had. Two were strays.
Yes but not for the brand stated (Coach) they aren’t really considered a high end bag IMO. You can get a Coach bag for under $100 on eBay. I buy at least one or two high end bags a year 3k is pretty much an average price for one I’ve paid more and I’ve paid less. I know of some that have wait lists to buy and cost over $100K if you can even get one (Hermès Himalayan Birkin). I’ve never bought a designer bag with the logo printed all over the bag, those are just tacky.
You just reminded me of something when you mentioned tennis.A few years ago I went to a tennis tournament with a friend who loves Federer. It was like going to another world. The amount of money walking around that place was crazy. As we watched the match, I noticed the woman in front of us wearing some really ugly shoes, so I looked them up. That led me to look up her whole outfit. She was sitting in Miami, in the sun, sweating like the rest of us, in 100 degree weather. Yet, she was doing it in a $10,000 ensemble. Crazy.
