I just saw some headline about the rich and famous.

I quickly realized given the choice I would choose to be rich and unknown, NOT famous.

What is the advantage of being famous?

Nothing for me that I can see.

Unfortunately, I will be neither... Poor me...please shed a tear for me if you have time...

Lol, no offense Henro but I think you need a hobby, you have way too much time on your hands. ;)
Yea I guess so...just doing nothing in the shop this afternoon, rather than accomplishing something. But sometimes that is good too.

But STILL, I would choose rich over famous...LOL

Edit: I think this is something those retired suffer sometimes...:ROFLMAO: I don't mean the poor part...

I really don't need either, been a great life, been with the same girl since she was 17 and I was 18 and still crazy about her but I will admit there have been times where a little more money would have helped and I gotta tell ya famous means nothing to me.

I know of rich folk who try very hard to remain inconspicuous. Its quite common. In Texas there is a saying "Big Hat ,Small Herd". That about sums it up.

I would choose neither but I guess that it all depends upon one's definition of the two.

I am certainly not rich in any description of the word but I am comfortable in my own skin. There are not many folks my age still working and for that I am fortunate and thankful.

I am already famous, and I am already rich. I am well known to the people that I call friends, and I am rich because of those friendships. All the money in the world can't buy happiness or good health. I am rich because I have both, albeit old age has slowed me down a bit, and I can't get off the floor without a helping hand. My wife and I have worked all of our lives, and we saved and spent wisely, and now we can live a comfortable life, but we are not what you would call wealthy.

"There are not many folks my age still working"

I am VERY happy to NOT still be a working stiff!.

I was forced into retirement (downsized) 27 years ago at age 51, so my "retirement" certainly was not planned. Yes, I am still working, (I have a "one man" portable sawmilling business) but the fact is, I am happy.

Rich for sure. I never Understood the famous thing. I hate being in a small town and not being able to go anywhere without even running into 20 people who want to talk all day lol

Rich, I'm the opposite, I like the small town and wherever I turn knowing someone. I guess I could be one of those people you get tired of talking to. :)

My wife makes fun of me, we will travel and it seems like somehow or another we will find someone we know.

It appears that we share the exact same philosophy!
