My buddy laughs at me. He knows my proclivities. His observation is: "Once Poor, Always Poor." I think the idea is that no matter how much loot you have if you grew up poor, and I did, it is hard to let go. I guess RMD will change all that, but I should spend some now while my health allows me to enjoy it.

There probably was some one at the bank watching. Just say no when they ask you about Emperor's Club.

I think the habit of LBYM starts early and does not change easily.

However, depriving yourselves of life's essential is something that no one will thank you for...get help!
