WoW! Your grandma is an inspiration for me.

Thank you for your kind message.

Happy birthday and thanks for all that you have done, on and off the Bogleheads. May you continue to enjoy your House that Jack Built for many more years. (I am in the fourth year of mine.)

I appreciate your kind words.

I assume you are a surfer. I learned to surf on Miami Beach and placed 3rd in a Hawaiian Surf Board contest (about 1948). My 13 foot hollow board later became our living-room table. I can't imagine how they ride the huge waves I see on TV.

Thank you for posting your photo Danielle!

Here is another nice photo from our South Florida local chapter meeting last Sunday when we all sang Happy Birthday to Taylor. The picture windows show the beautiful aquamarine waters of Biscayne Bay in Miami, where Taylor still sails every week (he's the skipper, not the crew :wink: ) and where Taylor lives in the "house that Jack built." :D

Happy Birthday Taylor! Also thank you for your patience with us on the boat a few weeks ago. You're amazing. I can still see you hanging onto the boom in high winds, fixing the sail. You are a man to be admired.

Best,

Hi Taylor,

Wishing you a belated very happy birthday. To paraphrase Jack Bogle, I want to be like you when I grow up. Your leadership on this forum has been and continues to be immeasurable. You and Mel were a pleasure to work with on "The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing." You are a great friend, King of the Bogleheads and a prince of a man. It is an honor knowing you.
Best wishes, | Michael | | Invest your time actively and your money passively.

Hi DD (Sherrie):

So nice to see your name on a post. Takes something really special like Taylor's 93rd birthday to bring you out of hiding! :D

Long time, no see or chat. Perhaps it's time for you to think about attending our 2017 Bogleheads Conference so we can catch up.

All Taylor has to do is reply to all his Birthday wishes and he will be to 26,000 in no time!

The other thing I was thinking of is how nice it is to see the honors pour in upon one's old age. We haven't forgotten about Taylor and in return he hasn't forgotten about us! If I get to age 93 someday, I hope somebody will still care about what I have to say. I also hope to be active and sharp then too! I think that is why Mr. Bogle does lots of interviews, he gets a kick out of them, somebody still pays attention. We are also glad to hear a lot from Taylor as well.

Also want to express best wishes to Taffy as well.
