I admire your tenacity Bob. Sure, it is prideful to brag on stuff, but it seems to me you worked hard for it and took advantage of opportunities as they presented themselves to you. I don't have near what you do, but I'm danged proud of every piece of property I have collected over the years, and I believe if you like to show it off, that's ok. I'm not in the least jealous of what you have, and if you like to show it off, then more power to you. Even if it is a beat up old trifive, a man should be proud of making the best of an old car and be proud of it. You keep on at it, don't matter much what others say, I enjoy seeing someone do well.

Thanks Bill. We've all paid our dues, and some of us are fortunate to have a little left over. It's called our "Nest Egg".
Some continue to find ways to build on it. Others are content with the equity or interest earned from it.
My opening post had neither of these in mind. I was just stating my surprise at the accumulated value of a home I no longer owned.
Since I bought a home by the beach last year, I wondered out loud if it would have been more frugal to buy my old house back as a better investment. It was nobody's business whether I could afford to pay for it.
Buying the old house back was just a fleeting thought, as I am quite happy with the purchase of our dream home. It may not have been the best investment, but then again neither is restoring old cars.
It was the statement I was in over my head that bothered me, and I should have ignored it. But I felt it was a personal insult even though it was a thoughtless remark. I should have left my friend's remarks settle it.
I own nothing to be envious about as it is out there for all to attain. I am very happy you find yourself in a position to enjoy life.
Thanks again Bill
Bob

It ain't worth the time getting 'frayed' Bob. Some guys only skim read, then respond improperly without even understanding the statements they're responding to. I've been in that boat here before, and when I respond a second time to try to straighten things out the perpetrator still only skim-reads THAT. Frustrating........but not worth the time.

Many here know how you feel about things my friend, and the ones that actually study your statements truly understand what and why you say what you do.

I found nothing brash or boastful in your statements. Burn out and drive away!
