This is my 20th year in retirement. I've always been very careful to limit my exposure to fixed income securities (currently 94% stock, 6% fixed income)

YAY!!! I thought I was the only one who kept nearly all stocks and very few fixed income. I'm only 7 years into retirement, though.

A couple of times I had an investment manager (*not* a FA, just essentially a private mutual fund) running some of my money, and I had to lie to them that I had 30% in bonds in other accounts, just to keep them from having a heart attack.
