Comments on: Talking About Priorities with My Pal, Buck One couple's story of escaping 9 to 5 until 65 Wed, 20 Jul 2016 17:22:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bryan Sun, 22 Nov 2015 03:07:48 +0000 I have lots of imaginary talking animals and friends… keeps me from going too crazy! I agree, Hershey should jump into these conversations, then I can share his words of wisdom with the millions of readers of this blog. 🙂

BTW – Hershey owns the house and only allows us to cohabit with him. At least that is how it often feels to me.

ARB, the statement “Hey, I think I just described my generation. No retirement.” is sad but unfortunately seems true. I am concerned about how my daughters will fair in today’s work environment where retirement seems to be a pipe dream. Hopefully they can stay focused on building some marketable skills, save as money as possible along the way, and create a side hustle on the side just in case.

Plenty more debt extinguishing updates coming soon. Two weeks from today we knock one more rental property loan off – only one will remain. It appears that we many be debt free with our our investment properties in early February!

We don’t get deer where I’m from. Just possums. They don’t really say that much, outside of how much fun it is to scurry from one dark corner to another and about how they can give their possum diseases to my dogs.

Buck’s life is certainly a double edged sword, just like a human’s. He has no debt and owes nothing to nobody (financially or otherwise), but he also can’t accumulate wealth. He has only the fur on his body and the food in his belly. There’s no such thing as passive income for him. There’s no freedom from the need to work for his meal. There’s no retirement.

Hey, I think I just described my generation. No retirement.

Hope Buck finds himself a new doe that isn’t looking for children. Best of luck to him. Next time, you should let Hershey join in the conversation.
