I own my condo. It's initial value was 1/3 of my assets but it is in a swanky beach hot spot and rents year round or how much ever I want for 5,000 a month. Will pay for itself in year 5 or 6, around the bend.

Also, I have guaranteed income until I die of 70- 80,000/year. Not including capital gains or withdrawals from my 650,000 liquid assets. I am single. Happy that way. I'm 60.

I still have a lot of cash and plenty to keep investing as I've been every where I want to go, so far, and done most everything I've wanted to do. I've had some BAD times but I came out ok somehow. Through my union 100% Health Care Coverage, negligible deductible.

It sounds good right? I'm scared. I'm scared I've overlooked some run away inflation era looming or I DON"T KNOW!

What can I or should I do or go from here with my assets. Am I missing something obvious!!!

My son is disabled and works but low income earner. But his father takes care of him. And will leave hima nice inheritance which I'd like to do too. But nothing overboard. He's a simple guy. Small needs and wants. Inexpensive lifestyle. Good wife. That might not last but it should, his dad's almost 70 and not in excellent health.

My mom lived to be 90 and he mom almost 100 her 2 sisters 103, 104. That I don't think about but just throwing in everything. Am I missing something necessary? Fun? Or advantageous to my son?
