Anybody join the millionaire club recently?

With the action in the Treasury market last week I did finally - yay! With all the shared pain on this board recently I thought I'd start a positive thread.

Don't hurt me ...

Not yet... but I feel like I am being clubbed with a baseball bat and spike sticking out of the business end of it.

No salt intended! It's not all bad, anybody with exposure to Treasuries should be happy.

Hmmm-- a new millionaire, who likes working, and who believes other posters also have exposure to Treasuries.

Welcome... but what makes you think that you have anything in common with the rest of this board's posters?

In retirement - joining is fun(I did it three times).

It's the un - joining that sucks.

Depending on my mood - I can watch the Saint's play the 4th qtr and pray/swear or I can mutliply 25X my pension and SS and feel 'richer' when added to my portfolio.

Or look at the income stream and hum:

psssst Wellesley!

heh heh heh - A little forum joke there.

Yup, I can attest to that. We joined the club 2 years ago, and now we're on the verge of being kicked out.

In fact, we may already be out. I've been reluctant to look at our investment account statements.

Same here - joined 2 years ago - close to un-joining now.

I think the "Lost over a million" club will be drawing a lot of members from your million dollar club.....not that any of us want it that way

If I live for another 30 years the payout from my pension would be 1.3 million dollars.

I can't believe people are "joining" the millionaire's club these days?
I got thrown out un-ceremoniously about 3 months ago. Hoping I can join again during the coming year.

I'm sure it's mega-multi-millionaire-mommy-next-door. After all, she must have seen this downward trend coming.

Like maybe I'd enjoy FIRE too? Said I like my job, don't love it.

Congratulations Architect, that is an impressive feat in this market.

Now if you made it by shorting stocks, I'd be organizing a lynching party.
