1966-2006. Even owning high yield corp, REIT's, utility stocks et al, intermediate treas. and of course - psst Wellesley from time to time.
For better or worse I have retired from being a 'legend in my own mind'.
jan 2006 Target Retirement 2015. No guts no glory. Of late I try not to look. Full auto rebalancing and periodic deduct to checking. ER(jan 93 -jan 06) was a lot more frenetic when I had my hands on the throttle.
heh heh heh - ok so a few good stocks (less than 8%) to keep the hormones quelled til football season.
And yes I am old enough to remember 'The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.'
