WE are allways gotng to have Grasshopers and Ants. I guess, I am an Ant I invested the max in my 401K, I lived below my means and, saved money all my life with the goal of retiring early. I had alot of Grasshoppers I worked With that that never saved nothing.

Now I am 50 years old, I retired in May of this year. At my retirment dinner I had a lot of Grasshopers tell me " I sure whis I could retire" .

So no matter what we do some people will never be prepared for retirement.

Glad I am an Ant.
