The Bragg Team
4th Quarter 2014: Cowboys on Wall Street
By Benton S. Bragg CFP®, CFA®
My son Charlie (7) was given a gift
certificate to Toys & Co. for Christmas by his grandparents. As you might imagine, after receiving the gift, not a day passed without Charlie reminding Alice and me that he was ready to go shopping. "Are we going today, Mama? How 'bout tomorrow, Daddy? Why can't we go right now?" As we live on a small farm outside of Huntersville,
making the trip to Toys & Co. in south Charlotte would normally require a
little planning. But conveniently, our
whole family was to be in Charlotte
one evening last week for our annual
Christmas Lights Tour" and we
thought it might be fun for all six of
us to stop by Toys & Co. at Cotswold
Shopping Center to help Charlie pick
out a toy. Needless to say, Charlie was
excited and the rest of us were pretty
fired up too. Read more

As my children grow older, it seems life moves a little faster each year. In a couple of years, both my children will have left the nest for college and my husband and I will, we hope, have a few years before they possibly move back in. Before I know it, my 50's will be behind me and the golden years of 60's and retirement / medical decision-making will be upon me. Read more
