I have not really thought about this too much, because up until recently I was a lot more concerned with more mundane and immediate things. I had kids to keep fed and clothed, had to worry about getting them into college, then I had to get them cars and worry about car insurance rates for teen drivers. All of that great stuff that comes with growing up and becoming a responsible adult. It sounds all too dreary in the past tense, but at the time you just muddle through all of it. Now suddenly Meg and I have rather little to worry about, aside from our own mortality. The kids are grown up and out of college, in fact they did really well and we did not have to spend all of our money on tuition, because they had plenty of money from scholarships and the other stuff. A Pell Grant I think is what is called. Regardless it was only half as expensive as we had anticipated and we got to keep the money we had saved.
Now the house is paid off, and we have a fair sum of money invested in various places. It is a long way from Easy Street, but it is not nearly so far it once seemed it would be. So we are thinking about what to do with ourselves. We have been thinking about getting one of those big RV's. Of course I can drive a big truck pretty easily, although it has been a very long time. I actually did it when I was a teenager. That was back before they were too picky about rules, and I grew up on a dairy farm. So when my dad wanted someone to drive the tanker into the dairy he just told me to do it.Click On This Link
