I wonder how many posts I would have if this was the length of each response.

O.k., quit making fun of Chaz' short posts. I believe he is at least 90 years old and might have arthritis, etc. The fact that he could still post should be an inspiration for all of us.

I may be wrong, but I recall Chaz once said he was in his early 70s. In any case, I've never seen anyone get his message across with fewer words than Chaz and that IS an inspiration. Thanks, Chaz!

He's been averaging ~5 posts a day. He made 14 posts today - so he may be done for today. We'll see what tomorrow brings. Not that I'm stalking him or anything. 8-)

Chaz hasn't written anything in almost a day - I think this thread must have caused him a case of the "writer's block".

I think Chaz does a great job in keeping members focused on what is really important. I have also benefited from his knowledge of
estate planning. I really appreciate that he is always such a gentleman. Thanks Chaz.
