You've mentioned. Oh, you've mentioned. Over and over and over. Congratulations.

You've also put down every possible luxury or enjoyment that ANYONE on this board has ever had.

This is, once again, the "L"BYM board.

If you have the "M" and it contributes to the "L" why do we need to drag it into the depths of despair and stomp on it?

This may be a surprise to you, but you won't live forever, and no, you really *can't* take it with you.


THANK YOU for saying this!! Dad passed away in June and mom and dad are also multi millionaires (although THEY never, ever talk about money, let alone brag about it). In talking to mom last week, she said that although they did travel, they never splurged. On cruise ships they booked cheap, windowless rooms. They always flew coach on very early or very late flights, took buses, stayed in cheap hotel rooms, etc. She did express that they were so used to being frugal that they never stopped even when they could afford it. She wishes they would have lived it up more, while dad was here to enjoy it.
