One last thing, tomorrow is my 15 year wedding anniversary. It has been a great 15 years...many all-time highs along with a few rough drawdowns. Exactly what life and investing are all about. What's funny is my wife and I were discussing our past anniversaries:
  • our 5 year we stayed in Galveston and they evacuated the island due to a hurricane.
  • our 10 year we stayed in a b&b in Kemah that at first looked remote and enchanting set off on its own peninsula. Which quickly turned into isolated and horror movie'esque..that is after big honkin' wharf rats scattered about outside all night long.
This anniversary we plan to keep it simple, just stay home. Of course, this upcoming front system could bring a tornado with our luck. Ha. Regardless, to my wife...thank you for the dance.
“The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.” -- Hugh Walpole Sr.

If you've been married 15 years you've already won at the game of life. If you have kids...that's a bonus that can't be valued.
