Don't Gamble on Your Retirement Wishing for a Lottery Win

Get real!

A recent study reported in Vancouver Sun in an article called Don't Gamble on Your Retirement found that one-third of Canadian female Baby Boomers are hoping for a lottery win to fund their retirement.

Now I could be wrong, but my guess is most of them don't even buy lottery tickets.

In the same vein, I could say that my retirement plan is to run away from it all, just like I tried to do when I was a kid, to no avail.

Both retirement plans, of course, have little chance of success.

Here are some money quotes, retirement quotes, and gambling quotes to put the topic in proper perspective:
