Thank God for royalties and IRA accounts. These assets free us up to become courageous. Prior to that financial freedom, most of us are worms and suck up to the Dubyas of this world so shamelessly that we should all be HIV positive.
Now, having worked for the Federal government as a bank examiner and for various commercial banks as a loan officer, Bubba can say this without equivocation. It is far better to bask in the sunshine of Lake Chapala any day rather then be a banker with one's nose up the butt of some phony wine grower dilettante in the Napa Valley. Why in God's name, UD, would I ever want to associate myself with that sort of world again whether among working or retired people?
You already know the answer and amuse me because you pretend otherwise.
