Andrew, after I got out of the Marine Corps in 1954, Dad told me to put my nose to the 24 hour a day grindstone in his building construction and real estate business or leave. Years later, he told me he had just been bluffing. He didn't think I'd really do it. I was quite willing to leave the business, but I wasn't so willing to leave the liberality which which he let me share in the profits. I said, "But Dad, I don't want to be poor. I want to keep on having adventures, and the like. That part of my life I don't want to stop."

Dad said, "Gene, at your young age of 25, you've done more than some men have in their entire lifetimes. So quit complaining. You've had more than your share."

I'd still keep this up, Andrew, if I had more money. As my wife and I get older, our savings decrease, forcing me to limit myself more and more. I am now down to just one or two extended vacations per year to Mexico. Each of these vacations lasts about a month. But we also take shorter trips of two or three days, such as our trips to Yuma, Arizona, near the Mexican border. My wife tells me that this limitation of activities suits her just fine. She loves to stay at home.
