Isn't great that we are all at different stages of our life. It gives time to reflect on what we want. It enables us to work more dilengently towards a preceive goal. It aid us in looking into ourselves and thinking about JUST what is important, and then we do what we must to get there. Work if you must, but remember those that left this world as soon as they "retired". Please keep that in mind in your travels.

I hear you webegone. While I was working a co-worker decided to work until he was 65. Well_ he had a massive coronary less that 30 days after he was 65. He still had his un-cashed first retirement check in his wallet. I got the message, I retired at 58 and never looked back.
The other side of the coin is; my kids think they should have all the "stuff" now that I worked 45 to obtain.

It sure sheds a new light on the saying "never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.", doesn't it? Wise advice.

I did it wrong for 35 1/2 years.

For the last 8 years I have been paid not to come to work.

What a concept!

As mentioned above, I saw several coworkers die way too young, so I retired as soon as I could.

I am so happy to see that VEHICLE IN TOW sign on the rear window. With all those crazy drivers out there running late to get to work, shopping or just going somewhere every little bit helps to keep you safe.
Yes pull the pin as soon as you can, it really is the good life.

For years when I worked in Dalton,Ga in the carpet mills I begged my supervisor to fie me. All he would do was laugh. Later after I retired I called to talk to him and found out he went on vacation and never came back.

Hi ... Mariel here. I was working at a CPA firm ... one of the STIFF, ANAL, NEUROTIC CPA partners was on the war path ... AGAIN! I would have NONE of it. I put him in his place, as much as possible ... without getting fired.

His wife phoned me one day to say "you are a maverick. Do you know that?" ... I said "Thank You ... that is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me!" ... She was speechless. She asked "WHY would you thank me? I DIDN"T mean it as a compliment!!"

I explained to this beautiful, young, RICH beyond compare housewife that mavericks MADE this country. Mavericks blaze trails ... start companies and find cures for diseases. It couldn't be anything BUT a compliment, and I hung up. No, never got fired.

A colleague retired this past summer at 65. Just recently he fell off a hiking trail in California and died.
I have 159 days left. Lucky for me they are paying me to leave so it will be early for me. People say "aren't you too young to retire?" I say "NO"!

I turned 61 last week, don't know if I can stand the lunacy another four years. Work really gets in the way of the things we want to do like heading on down the highway with our 5'er.

When you have a great job and a good boss and they pay you well, I never felt like I was working that much. So never being out of a job and I don't mind working, I didn't retire till I was 65 years and 3 months. After five years now RV'ing now I still work now and then when the company needs me to do a project for them. For me working when I want and keeping busy keeps me young.
Yah I know, some of you think I am nuts.
