Thanks. I understand your response. Makes sense, reasonable.

Of course, I failed to mention that I am using automatic dividend reinvestment on the VBLTX.

I have heard of bond ladders and never seriously considered building one at this point in my life (I'll think about it).

Do you frown on bond funds in general, or at all? What do you think of a 1/3 holding in long term bonds considering my long term view? Do you have any opinion about VBLTX in particular?

As always, anyone's opinions are welcome. Ultimately, I make all of my own decisions.
