Perhaps It’s Time to Part With YOUR Wishbone Collection
We recently came across a strange and entertaining article in a Vermont/New Hampshire paper. The article was about a Vermont man who has been collecting the wish bones from chickens he’d eaten over the past decade. After more than ten years, he had amassed 62 chicken wish bones, as well as one from a turkey, and felt it was time to ‘do something’ with them. He put an ad up, hoping perhaps that a school teacher might want them for a project, but no responses have been forthcoming. It looks like the Vermont man may be holding onto his bowl of wishes for a while.
You may not have a collection of wish bones, but you may have collected a lot of other things during your lifetime. Figuring out what to do with these things, both in your lifetime and after you are gone, can be challenging. That’s why it’s important to periodically review your estate plan. Is everything in order? Is everything up to date? Are the instructions still what you want? Has anything changed?
Staying current with your estate plan means that you will be prepared when you need to be and won’t find yourself with a bowl of wishes but no concrete plan. A chicken bone will not magically improve your luck, but some advance planning surely will. Remember that the start of a New Year is a great time to reexamine your plan.
