Happy Birthday, dear friend!
What a great treat it's been for me to know and work with you all these many years as we've built two financial forums and co-authored two books together, as well as starting the annual Bogleheads Conferences which will be celebrating its 13th reunion this October.
This Marine salutes his paratrooper friend and wishes you many, many more happy birthdays.
Together, you and I have contributed 34,820 posts on this forum to join in Jack Bogle's crusade: "To give ordinary investors a fair shake."
It's been a wonderful experience for me with thousands of caring on-line investor friends.
I also want to thank the thousands of Bogleheads who taught me much of what I know about mutual fund investing. Your friendship has brought real meaning to my life which (thankfully) is starting 89 years today.
Thank you and best wishes.
