Thank you dear Bogleheads

Dear Bogleheads:

As the day of my 94th birthday ends, I want to thank Paul and all the others who so thoughtfully have taken the time to send me your Birthday wishes. Your words and thoughts are the best Birthday present I could receive. I read and appreciate each one.

Let's hope we can all share our sentiments again a year from now on my 95th birthday.

Thank you and best wishes.

Taylor

Taylor, we wish you a heart-felt happy birthday :happy

Taylor's first post on the Vanguard Diehards forum on Morningstar was in March 1998, 20 years ago this year!

Twenty years of posting thoughtful, intelligent personal finance help to thousands (millions?!) of investors around the world in the most decent, cordial, classy manner with a touch of delightful humor :D

There is a reason why Jack Bogle calls you the King of the Bogleheads :D

Taylor,

Wishing you a happy birthday last year was my fifth post here. Amazing that a year has flown by so fast, that it's now time to make sure to tell you thank you and happy birthday again. We wish you many happy and healthy more!

Happy Birthday Taylor, from Whangerai, New Zealand.

Hope all is well with you. We sailed from Tahiti to Rarotonga, (Cook Ilands), then NIUE, then the Kingdom on Tonga for a few months and finally down to Whangarei, NZ. We are really enjoying being in a first world country for the first time in years and as a bonus they even speak Engilsh, albeit Kiwi English which is a bit different. We hope to be able to stay here a year and get alot of work done on North Star who has basically been cruising since 2009 without a major refit and the time is now. We are planning a visit back to FL in June/July, maybe we could get together again. Would be good to see you. We'll see and keep in touch as time draws closer and we get back into your hemisphere. Maybe you should come do a long bluewater passage sometime if you like. We have New Zealand back to Tonga coming up next year.

Congratulations again my friend for hanging in there. We appreciate all you do here on BH's.
All the best and get out on the water some.

Belated Happy Birthday Greetings to you, Taylor.

You're to personal finance what Michael Jordan (fellow Tar Heel) is to basketball.

There will never be another "you."

Happy birthday! When you get there, I'm sure you'll be more appreciative of reaching your third digit in age than your seventh digit in investments. Meanwhile, the rest of us will always appreciate the three funds of your portfolio! :beer.

Sounds like a fabulous trip for you Taylor! Reminds me of The downhill run to Pape'ete

It must be an extraordinary experience to sail on such a boat.

I also am a bit late after apparently missing the OP a few weeks ago but wanted to let you know that from my first response from you on the M* forum when I asked about asset allocation until now I have admired your help, consideration, and expertise responding to sometimes dumb questions.
Happy Birthday!
