The pros say to look at the drops as an opportunity to buy more of the funds. Not easy to do when you're retired and needing to use the money from them.

I have watched a few years of retirement fade away lately. Oh well, it will come back, I think, I guess, someday, hopefully.

I suppose there are other options.
Escape could ramp up production by limiting options and/or decreasing quality, they could also raise prices till demand slows.
I don't really care for those though.

61 is not too far off for me. Better get living, despite the drop in my retirement funds. Better they drop, than I do.

You're just a kid Jim. I expect you to be around to keep us in line for a long time to come.

Anytime you get wobbly and think another brand might be ok, just take a trip to the local RV Superstore off the interstate and kick the tires on their stock (but watch out, something might fall off!.). Time will go by before you know it!

One good thing about aging that I have found is that I can't drink as much as I used to so my liquor bill has gone down. Watch that Bucket List movie, read the obits in your local paper for 5 days and average the ages. Then go to the store, stock up and go camping or at least cook a meal outside and have a campfire you can stare into. You'll feel better. There are no pockets in a casket and no Brinks trucks following hearses.
