Perfect Father’s Day; Greece Elections; Fed Meeting Tomorrow

My Schedule…and a Little Extra:  My wife said yes to almost everything.  I had breakfast in bed after the kids jumped on top of me to wake me up (even though I was already awake).  I had pancakes and coffee.  My son made me a trophy and my daughter made me a chapter book…then they gave me a dance performance.  I told my Dad how much I love him. I called my father-in-law and wished him a happy father’s day…but no sappy stuff.  Then the four of us went strawberry picking and mini-golf.  Then we went home, made fresh strawberry daiquiris and fresh strawberry pie.  I had a beverage and watched the game (my team won) while my wife bathed and got the kids ready for bed.  Pretty much a perfect Father’s Day for me.  Here is the card my four year old son made for me in school:

My Daddy’s name is Phil
My Daddy is 65 years old (I’m 44)
My Daddy plays racing cars with me (this is true)
My Daddy looks like a fish (this is true)
My Daddy is special because he likes trophies (he made me a trophy as a gift)
I love my Daddy because I love him every day and every night (this is the dagger 🙂 )

My Mystery Quote:  Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind —  Answer

My Market Watch:  Rates are unchanged from Friday.  It’s all about the Greece elections yesterday.  The victors will try to back the country’s bailout and the markets are happy as a result.  But it’s far from over. Starting tomorrow there is a Fed meeting and as you know what they say and don’t say can shift the markets tremendously.  With all the disruptions in Europe, many think more stimulus discussions will occur and if so, expect rates to continue to remain low.  All these events would normally create an improvement in prices, but being that prices are already rock-bottom, rates have come out essentially the same as Friday.  Disclaimer

My Schedule:  Available all morning until 1:30p and then my schedule gets sporadic.
