In 1957 we paid $25,000 cash for our first house - 3 BR, 2 1/2 bath,
about 1800 sq. ft., Roman brick. It sold for about $120,000 several
years ago.

We mortgaged the house we have lived in for 52 years to buy a house
for our oldest son because investments paid more than mortgage
interest. We have owned 4 other houses, none of which had a mortgage
by us.

We paid cash for our last several cars also. And none of our family
has a student loan.

And we did it while earning probably a heckuva lot less per year than
you do now.

What's so unusual about that?

Hugh
