About 35 years ago as I was working in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, and contemplating the future, I had the opportunity to speak with a fellow who was older and wiser about the subject of Life after Traveling the Mideast for a few years.
My friend and I worked together in one of the largest GM Dealerships in the world. In his many years of working and saving he’s managed to buy 1/4 mile of a Texas River front property.
His take on elder and retirement plans went like this;
“I want to go fishing every day and get the checks out of the mailbox.”
Well that certainly seemed like a reasonable goal, and I felt a sense of comfort thinking along those lines.
