one last post on my "bridge the gap" account.

SP is right about one thing. I mishandled my "bridge the gap" account. account.

I didn't really plan for the worst that can happen, the biggest risk that might come my way. I have an optimistic personality.

Since it was supposed to last 7 1/2 years I expected it to grow-- while I took withdrawals from it. I only had 35% of it in cash. I lost 30% of it .

I finally capitulated and pulled it out of the market when I realized it should be in some cash equivalent. It didn't get to recover with the market when the market recovered.

It was sort of lose, lose.

Roll on July.
