Now that you have reached the stage of life where golf, tennis, fishing and bridge games dominate your days, taking the place of full-time employment or the time spent raising a family, your attention and free time has logically turned to more esoteric subjects such as visits to the doctor’s office and a new pastime – “financial/estate planning.”
