It was a joke. I'm glad you are so capable.

Welcome to the forum Aruba.

Hmmmm I have a couple of little ones that I just put to bed... how can I lease them out to help fund the FI bucket?

My little ones costed a bucket full and will continue to cost a bucket, but well worth the cost ... on target for FIRE by 50 as a choice/option. Looking forward to a silly grin!
