"The worries about the house repairs and a new auto purchase and redoing the
kitchen become a tad mute."

Really.

What REALLY can keep you awake at night, as you age, is the BIG "What if...?" "What if my spouse or I contract a serious, life-threatening illness or condition that costs gihumungous sums of money, far beyond what we have?"

With some medicines and procedures costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, how many of us can deal with such things -- unless you are truly wealthy (a millionaire) or a D.C. politician (with platinum medical coverage)?

THOSE worries are real, certainly in this country!
