Week in Review: Blackout Edition

by Kay Lynn

Swamp TV.

Today is the NFL home opener for the San Diego Chargers and I can’t watch the game.  Nope, the Chargers didn’t sell enough tickets by Thursday so the game is not being televised for the first time since November 2004.

So, although not happy about the situation I’ve decided to make the best of it and maybe work on the blog a little this afternoon.  I’ll try not to pout but no guarantees.

Oh no, I hope this isn’t just for the super-financially elite. I hope the product of executing financially sound plans is that we will all have enough to leave a decent inheritance 🙂 I’m just concerned that if put money in the hands of offspring who are irresponsible, the money will be wasted and possibly harmful to them.

Anyway, thank you immensely for including my post in your awesome round up!!!! I enjoyed the discussion in comments!

Kind Regards,

Roshawn, you’re welcome. I guess since my kids are already adults and will be well into their 30s and 40s by the time I retire I don’t plan to structure it differently than one lump sum. I would agree that it should be done differently with younger children.

Thanks for the mention!

The Chargers didn’t sell out? wow, maybe I should come down and finally see an NFL game in person… plus my wife and I loved it the last time we went to San Diego!

Tom, come on down! Make sure you arrange it to be when the Southern California PF bloggers meet as we’d all love to meet you.
