Happy Birthday Taylor! 96 years young!

Post by Miriam2 » Fri Jan 24, 2020 4:09 pm

Happy Birthday Taylor!

Taylor's Birthday is January 25, and he will be 96 years young :happy

Taylor, as the inspiration and creator of the Bogleheads forum, you have helped all of us more than you can imagine. You are a true gentleman and a helpful mentor to every investor, always decent and cordial and kind, tall and straight, blazer and shined shoes, a war veteran with indelible memories, a mischievous smile and sparkle in your eyes, and Dean of The Three Fund Portfolio.
