Re: Car fund vs IRA

I don't think Wab needs to LBYM. Power to him!

Cheers,

Charlie

Hi Wab. *Still on the diet. *Only a little cheating *
I'm at the end of month three and just went in for some more bloodwork to see how phase II of the experiment is going. I'll post an update when I hear the results.

I'm certain that Rumsfeld came up with that on his own. He's a genius. An evil genius, but still a genius

I've cut my burn rate way back. There was a brief period when I might have bought a toy like that, but I'm showing tremendous restraint. And I'm sure it wouldn't fit in the garage anyway.

Who needs a garage?

Re: Car fund vs IRA

Hey TH and Wab, I thought you guys had a nose for humor. Hope you are not cowed by my superior
anecdotes. Anyway, I read somewhere that in 2059
nasal milk will be available at Krogers. It was predicted by Nostrildamus.
