Hey guys - great to have had the preview pics yesterday by text! Annie and I feel like we had front row seats at the Ed Sullivam show for the Dave Clark 5 (that's a TV show and band some of us old mutants were fond of). Maybe try the Google or the Wiki...

So let me know what ya decide on Rockport - Drifters or Lagoons. It's about 360 miles from Dallas to Rockport - so you could do it in a day if ya had to from here. Like I mentioned yesterday - Vineyards is close to where you will be for that show - and close to the highway headed south.

Anyway - it's great to hear from ya and look forward to seeing you in Rockport - regardless of the week. We'll be there in one park or the other from 11/14 - 12/1.

Take care! Keep in touch.

At times you go into panic mode, not wanting to spend anything but little by little you remind yourself this is what you've been planning for your whole life, and besides you get tired of eating cat food! Lol

And, everytime you pay something off you get a raise! More money for fuel!

Steve was smart ( I'll regret I said that, he never forgets ) he had a plan to be debt free and has stuck too it, as far as I know.
We did stick to it. And - in the words of Robert Fort - that has made all the difference.

But - the truth is - getting comfortable with retirement in general - especially early retirement - takes planning, execution and faith. Even if you've worked yourself into a equal or otherwise comfortable retirement income that ₩#*k provided - your savings rate goes down. We are plowing a ton into the 401k right now. When the market goes down, it's troubling - but faith dictates - buying more for less is a good thing in the long run.

Once ₩#*k ends, downturns are little more serious - at least to me... To avoid the worry of needing to draw money in a downturn - I have set up a transition IRA account. When my 401K is ++ I make some sales and move the cash into that account. But you can't do that until 59.5 years old. Sometimes I put it in a bond fund or utility to earn a little something but mostly its cash and serves as that cash reserve we should all keep.

There is only real way to avoid the fear of unknown financial needs and that's to have Waynes money!!! I'm pretty sure he's thinking of adopting me.

Also - don't be greedy - take profits - and keep the cash reserve funded even before 59.5...

Crickets...
About to roll on out to get Bonita and run her up to have shades installed on the - command module - I will be glad to replace the black night shades and the side curtains. They worked but aren't very festive... or homey.

No ignoring, you guys just flap too much and I can't keep up to you and your posts all over the place! LOL

I mean.....23,000 posts? Come on! LOL

Actual truth is I still work and too much. Only so many hours in the day. Spent all day yesterday at the office for a new server installation and migration. It sucks being the only one in the company that knows what to do in dealing with the IT guys.
