My Dad…I think about him everyday - 06/16/08 08:04 PM
My dad, Leslie Hilton Shadwell, was born in 1922 at the beginning of the Roaring Twenties and came of age during the great Depression. The last of six children, he was what was affectionately known as a “change of life baby:” Well loved and yet never spoiled. A classic Libra, he was slow to anger, quick to forgive, unassuming and his word was his bond.

A client of mine called me up the other day to ask me about Time Shares. It could just be because it's almost June and we're still wearing our coats. That being said, I'm trying to pull together some info on the subject. I have to admit that I have no expertise in, or even opinions on, this area. So I'm asking you all to share any of your experiences: the good, the bad and the ugly. Thanks! What are the typical cost? Are they ever a good investment? Do they take dogs and cats?
