I agree with all of your points, esp. the last one.

I plan on about three massive spending years, like next year when the camp gets a metal roof and the house in the city gets siding and new steps and windows. I have three major years planned over the next 15. All the rest is stuff I can do in a regular year's budget or wait for a year when the markets are up. I planned it this way to force myself to make physical/monetary investments in property. I tend to get used to problems and ignore them.

I think W2R would be a little concerned to find you sleeping in her bed.

But hey, I could be wrong.

I was on a noble quest looking for the GRAAAIIILLLLLL, when I stumbled upon a strange man, in many lands known as............. TIM.

Long story short, I took a picture of this Cute Fuzzy Bunny, before it transformed before my eyes, to a creature with BIG NASTY POINTY TEETH, at which point I soiled my armour.

Well I'm flattered, but the above was the "last point" I referred to.
