And not that tattoos mean anything, but this guy had two full sleeves that you could not place a dime on either of his arms and not touch a tattoo. His back was the same way. He said it was from a "different life", when he had a motorcycle shop. It was a far cry from being a 31-year old white-collar worker wearing a suit and tie. As he progressed, I wondered "how can you go from that much ink to a million-dollar lifestyle at just over 35 years old?" It was a bit of a fascination for me.

Ferrari's, Range Rovers, a Shelby, $60K+ motorcycle, $800K house in MN, home in Malibu, CA, a horse ranch, etc. And that was only the stuff I saw. His wife joked with me once that most of the neighbors probably thought that they were drug dealers.

Money was no object. I even did a dumpster dive when he was cleaning out his house, picked up about $300 worth of new tools and supplies.

It was interesting when I searched his name after his wife said that they were a bit short on money and wanted to negotiate my prices.

I guess I am what Dirty Harry got accused of every movie....A relic...a dinosaur.. I should have been born in the 1800s when people met the noose for offenses of similar ilk. They get off too easy taking what some people have spent a lifetime working legally for...But that is just me...

My HSA is with Fidelity. Same place where the 401k resides.

I used to buy alcohol and cigarette stocks with it. Seemed like an appropriate place. I have recently switched them all over to ETF funds.

I don't know if an individual can open an HSA fund with Fidelity. It may have been part of some package deal that MegaCorp put together.

My HSA is also just a regular brokerage account at Fidelity, with no fees. However, my understanding is that it's only available in conjunction with a Fidelity-administered HDHP through your employer. Evidently, keeping it after you retire is no problem.
