You should have seen me last November as I found out that my dream of someone else managing my assests were torn away by the Fools and their book (MFIG).
Panic might be a bit strong but.....

Anyhow I have tried to learn at a great rate of knots since then, so the one thing that I can say is I have not been bored with retirement so far, and then there is also learning to bank via computer etc.
Hell I never owned Quicken till last November (was the first thing I did, try to figure out where I really was, I sorta knew in general but...).

And I, like you, have been getting smarter (more Foolish???) by using this site and books and maybe before I die I will know what I should have 30 years ago.

LOL. Who says an old dog can't hunt? Now me, I'm only 29, and in four months will celebrate my 31st anniversary of attaining that age. Nevertheless, I still am learning what this investing business is all about. Ain't it great to be Foolish?
