New 2 comma member

Post by FRANK2009 »

Title says it all. Like a lot of people here, there is no way in hades I would tell anyone in person, so you guys, in relative anonymity, are it. It only took 30 years of investing (all with Vanguard).

Thank you all...I've learned a lot here.


Most of all, Thanks to Jack Bogle. You've made a retired police officer wealthy enough not to have to worry (too much) about retirement.

Retirement is a game best played by those prepared for more volatility in the future than has been seen in the past. The solution is not to predict investment losses but to prepare for them.

This is a nice milestone. It may not last out the year or it may be the first of many. Doesn't matter. Enjoy the moment. Life is all about goals and experiences so share a nice bottle of bubbly with someone special. Also, congratulations on reaching the two comma club!

I've been retired for 10 years. My frugal nature, decent pension, and a mostly cooperative stock market have allowed me to invest throughout most of my adult life. Certainly wasn't easy at times.
