Second decade of owning the shares. I hope to be fully invested in Berkshire well before that day. Hope he beats Methusaleh's record and live for a long time. Hope he can see his painting sell for a Million dollars per share.

I've never owned Berkshire directly.

When my first niece was born 32 years ago my parents wanted to put some money away for her education. I recommended a share of BK, which was ~$3.5K at the time. It made sense as a longterm holding with no expenses and no distributions to mess with. My folks elected to put the money in savings bonds. That was one lucky recommendation I can still rib my mom about.

No, don't own any class A and at this point, probably never will. It's too unwieldy. I wouldn't mind taking a look at class B however . . .
Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.

I bought 1 share in October 1987 after Black Monday for about $3200. In the late 1990s I converted my share to 30 shares of class B. And, then proceeded to sell 2/3rds of them and buy individual company shares... Sure wish I had kept my 1 share intact...

Yes, I plan to keep my remaining B shares for awhile. I trust Warren has picked good successors, just as he's picked good companies (mostly)...

The Big Lebowski: Are you employed, sir?
The Dude: Employed?
