TOPIC:  Show Me The Money…

Posted:  9/8/2017, 4:52 a.m. EDT


Dad says that there's nothing he's learned from being a father that he couldn't just as easily have figured out by simply setting all his money on fire.  That seems a bit cynical, but then that's what I expect.  He also says that one way to have a million dollars when you retire is to invest 10 million.  Again, very cynical, and I must say it is not very respectful of investment companies.  I have offered to help manage his meager life savings.  I know that he needs me because, as far as I can tell, his entire investment strategy is to occasionally go online and check to see if his 401 (k) has a positive balance.  Now I say, go henceforth, take on the weekend, and pick some Honeycrisp apples!
