Years ago, I would have jumped up in seconds. Now I was straining to rise. This is what happens to old guys, I thought. Despite the fact that I lift weights and still jog a couple of miles, the months and years roll on. As much as I’ve fought it, I’m growing older and I hate it.

I’ve talked with silver analyst Ted Butler almost every morning for fourteen years. I believe he has it figured out. That means silver is going to explode in price. Fortunes will be made in silver and I’m counting on being a participant. I’ve had patience and now I’m ready for the big move. I want to enjoy this silver rise while I’m still here. As Robert Browning wrote, “Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.”
