Houston’s Big Bucks…”Baby Got Back”…Greenbacks! But We Also Have Folks With A Lot Of Heart!!

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!!!

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!!!
