Who cares

I might, but I need more details. - WorldRecordGuy | Date: 8/31/06 10:28 PM | Number: 25

My wife retired at the end of the second week of August. She went to work the following Monday as the office manager at my daughter's start-up law firm. She is getting paid there, but about $20K less a year than she was making before. I have been retired since October 1995. The fencing club costs $100 per month for fencing twice a week for 90 minutes. There is another club that I can join for $45 per semester, fencing once a week from 19:30 - 21:00. When my wife gets a $20K per year raise, or if I restart an Investment firm I started in 1988, then sold and retired in 1995, and I can earn a six figure income, then I can go back to paying $100 per month.

I could actually afford to pay $100 per month, but there are other things to do with $100 per month besides pay for a fencing club membership. I could also just take individual fencing lessons at the club for $15 per session. One individual lesson per week would be $60 per month.
