Forbes recently released its list of “The World’s Billionaires” list for 2017. Guess who just BARELY missed it again this year?!!! Ok, I MAY have missed it by a LOT 🙂 !!!
The richest lady in Texas according to their list? Yep, you guessed it!!! That honor goes to 67-year-old, Alice Walton. Name familiar? Yep, she is an heir to Sam Walton, founder of Wal-Mart! What’s her net worth? $38 BILLION!!!!! I don’t know about you but I think maybe Alice needs to buy Elizabeth and Max a new car!!! All I want is a Honda Civic with all the bells and whistles…don’t need a darn Lexus. Help a sista out Alice!!
Who is the wealthiest Houstonian according to Forbes?? That’d be 72-year-old, Richard Kinder who is the founder and executive chairman of Kinder Morgan. They estimate his wallet at $7.2 BILLION!!! Pretty sure he could gift me a Honda Civic too…although I might need to knock off some of the added features 🙂 Actually, after my car’s air conditioning went out recently with heat indexes over 100, I’m just thankful as all get out to have air again!!!
Glass half full??? They are poverty-stricken when compared to Bill Gate’s $86 BILLION!! I wonder where Max is on the list of wealth??? 🙂
Granted, I have no doubt Alice, Richard and Bill give their fair share to charity but today I watched the news and thought…this guy has TRUE wealth!!! Allow me to introduce Mr. Rocky Synder. He may not be on the money list but he’s a top 10 guy in my opinion!
