Week in Review: Wimbledon Edition

by Kay Lynn

Why so sad, Mr. Fuzz?
A lot of people are watching World Cup matches but at the Boomer household it’s about tennis.  The incredible match this past week between American John Isner and Frenchman Nicolas Mahut is indescribable. 

Both men exhibited traits useful in all areas of life (personal finance…) including perservance, mental toughness, sportsmanship and endurance.  In the end they set many new records that it’s hard to imagine ever being broken. 

On to this week’s selected blog readings.

Vacations may be relaxing but require planning.  Christian PF writes about planning your finances for vacation.
