HAPPY 93RD BIRTHDAY, TAYLOR!

Post by Mel Lindauer » Wed Jan 25, 2017 10:47 am

Just wanted to let everyone know that today is the King of the Bogleheads, Taylor Larimore's 93rd birthday.

I'm pleased to call him my partner-in-crime and my co-author, but I'm most pleased to call him my very dear friend.

Here's to many more birthdays, Taylor. Onward to the century mark.

Bogleheads:

The telephone rang. I picked up the phone and someone started singing Happy Birthday in a beautiful mellow voice that I recognized. It was my hero, Jack Bogle!

Thank you, Jack! Thank you, Mel! Thank you, Bogleheads!

Best wishes.

Happy Birthday, Taylor!

People might be interested in this fact. Taylor often references Google and he often provides the number of hits a subject has to show it's popularity and validity. Well, if you Google Taylor Larimore, you will see 358,000 hits. Not bad for a humble Boglehead leader.

Stay the course, Taylor. :sharebeer
