    For many years, a young stock broker at Big Steet Investments would plan a yearly weekend getaway at a mountain Inn.

    He would rendez-vous with the innkeeper's daughter while he was there.

    Looking forward to this years trip he departed with his suitcases in hand. When he arrived at the Inn he made his way up the stairs to his usual meeting room. The door was open and he walked in glancing at the Innkeeper daughter sitting on the bed.

    There she sat with an infant on her lap!

    "Who is that he asked."

    "It's your son" she answred.

    "Why didn't you write when you learned you were pregnant?" he cried. "I would have rushed up here, we could have gotten married, and the child would have my name!"

    "Well," she said, "when my folks found out about my condition, we sat up all night talkin' and talkin' and we finally decided it would be better to have a bastard in the family than a stock broker.


    In the midst of the shaky stock market we have had this week many brokers are getting calls from their clients requesting they liquidate their holdings. One broker recounts such a call.

    One of my clients call me on Thursday all anxious and out of breath with this urgency in his voice.

    He says to me "Howard sell it all sell everything , fast right away."

    I try to explain to him that the market is cyclical in nature and that for long term outlook stocks still remain the place to be.

    He says" John, let me tell you a secret. You know I've been married for 6 years now and I've been your client for 5."

    "yes go on" I say.

    "Well. My wife Lucie has this thing about the market. It's a phobia of sorts. When we got married I promised her that I would follow in her parents footsteps and never venture in the stock market and always leave all our money under the mattress. Her Great Grandparents lost it all in the great crash and ever since then her family found investing in the market akin to original sin."

    "Wow Howard I didn't know that. I guess you want the money because the market is going down in case she asks for it."

    "No John I want the money because she ordered a new mattress and it is being delivered in two days."
