I met Rich in Tampa

I met Rich & his lovely wife recently (an hour ago ) . He is incredibly funny ,charming and much thinner than I had thought . Rewahoo , back off on the retirement push because he does not look a day over 45 . So what was his burning question when we met ? How did I manage to retire on a nurse's salary ? What do I think of the markets ? What interesting money books have I read recently ? No, it was why is my punctuation so weird ? Is it a secret code ? Yes, It is a secret code to when the market stabilizes and for $9.99 I will send you the decoder ring . Hurry this is a one time offer and if you act fast I will include my secrets to lose money in any market .


P.S. Rich & his wife are soooo much fun !

Heck, I just think Rich is waiting for the right SWR and he's out. Another 10 to 20 years I'd guess.

Bosh! We were so poor we never saw so much as a semicolon in a fortnight. We'd have been livin' the life o' Reilly with an apostrophe. In fact, me old Dad would regularly beat us with hyphens -- just for good measure. These kids today, what with colons and parentheses floating about everywhere free for the taking, can't possibly understand.

He didn't have any sample drugs to correct your punctuation problem? I thought doctors had a prescription for everything........

If I posted pictures hundreds of women would be showing up in Tampa with vague symptoms and wanting to see Rich and I like his wife too much to do that .

So Moe, did you and Rich agree to meet, or did you just happen to run into someone else wearing an ER Forum T-shirt? ER flash mob?
