Part 4 Social Security Comments … Hopping a Hurricane for Summer’s Second Looong Tennis Tournament – Friday

Hope you enjoyed the mid-week Social Security post audio and coverage around it. Thought it very interesting that an increase in Social Security full retirement age would likely do no good for a total Social Security savings/cost standpoint. Seems very frequently there is some public banter about raising the Social Security age to save future Social Security expenses.

You heard is here, from Clark the expert, that is just not the case!

Mid-week it was brought to my attention that hurricane Barry was barreling north towards the US coast line from the Gulf – must’ve had the head in the sand … some reason thought it was in the Pacific.

No matter, today the 14-year-old tennis player and I take off to hop the hurricane for the summer’s second long tournament. Clay is much different than Hard courts, but she has played on it before – In true win or go home fashion,  winning begets the opportunity to play for a full week!

Thank goodness for technology and frequent flyer miles.

Friday

Ahhhh …. but I digress … today is a Friday, smack dab in the middle of the summer – it’s getting hot here … but that’s summer isn’t it?

Stay cool!

Have a great day, talk to you remotely next week!

Summer Trips … App review … Unique Service Teaser … Our Post Schedule Reminder for some curious in the field …

We know many of you are taking your first (much deserved) trip of the summer … some are already on their trip.

Cruise, family, relocation, beach, cooler climates in the North…just to name a few…

Enjoy! You deserve it!

App Re-Review

Shortly we will re-review a neat App that will make its second appearance in this Tripitquarters coming Newsletter as it has been updated and we have over a year of usage under our belt. The premium version has paid for itself in cost and convenience MANY times over… worth the re-review …

Tennis – Texas Grand Slam

Speaking of trips …Today we take a trip that will hopefully extend into some length. The biggest Texas Junior Tennis tournament of the year begins tomorrow in a small west Texas tennis-2042723__340town. With over 1000 juniors not including parents and siblings, caravanning to the small town, hotels and evening dining spots are at a premium….

In true pro-like format – Play until you have two singles losses and one doubles — then pack your bags and go home!

Unique Service Teaser

As announced earlier here, While the cat is away the mice will not play – Monday we announce our Unique Summer Fun Service that will hopefully put some extra money in your pocket — Yes Money directly into your pocket.

Hopefully we have your interest!

Here is a hint …

Watch for Monday’s Post… this is going to be fun!

Shhhh … Blog Post Schedule Reminder

Shhhh …. Don’t tell anyone, but we post every Monday Wednesday and Friday at 10:30 AM Central time … If you are not getting a post on these days, check your spam filter as we occasionally find our hard work and bright ideas end up in the junk file – oh no!

Ok … maybe too much coffee this am, or maybe excitement for the Tournament … either way … It’s a Friday, heading into a wonderful sunny summer weekend, enjoy yours, talk to you next week!

Have a Great Summer Friday Day! Safe Travels to All!

Capital Markets Ignore … Short Week Concludes … Friday Tennis Weekend

Capital Markets are the ultimate voting machine. Frequently they are VERY irrational, often times they act temperamental, other times they just ignore and move on.

With the recent flexing of various international military muscles and “Breaking News” headlines, Capital Markets …. and their participants, are just moving on down the road and focusing on earnings … which is really what they are supposed to do. NICE!

Short Week

With the celebration of July 4th on Tuesday, Wednesday felt like Monday, making Thursday feel like Tuesday and today …. Oh Boy … Not really sure what day it is. Friday? Yes..

Friday Tennis Weekendtennis-2042723__340

Wimbledon …. Yes it will be going on this weekend, but a more important Tennis weekend to your present party … a National Tournament in a neighboring state (Travels , all good) .. Win our go home, once again, puts the journey into next week if the former occurs…

Ahhh, that is looking into next week and this is a Friday, smack in the middle of Summer. It goes fast, enjoy, relax and spend time with those special!

Boring but beautiful … Olympics … Hot Hot Hot … Tennis weekend…

There is an old Wall Street saying… goes something like this…

“Never short (bet against) a sleepy, boring Market!”

The most recent week was record breaking in lowest volume, boring and non-interest… all the while, domestically and across the globe…. markets grinned in beauty as they climbed higher… NICE!

Things getting better? Markets sure think so!

Olympics

Are you guys as interested as we are? What can you say… Phelps is incredible … more gold’s than he can carry… Looking forward to more events !!

Temperatures

Hot Hot Hot…. Those of you reminding me that as winter ended we stated we would not gripe about the soon coming warmth….So we are not complaining.. just saying, as we wipe our brow…

Speaking of hot…. a slightly western state tennis tournament for my 11 year old this weekend looks to be interesting….

Ahhh…but today is a Friday… Enjoy the last few summer Fridays as they are coming to an end soon ! All Good !
