I retired in 2000 at the ripe old age of 47. Two years after bypass surgery which the rehab folks attributed to job stress, so I fixed that problem. Fortunately for me my slightly older and wonderful spousal unit still works as a hospice nurse to provide us with health care.

I retired 6 yrs ago (at 55) after 33 years with Hewlett Packard as a regional Customer Services Director. 1973 was a good time to be in Silicon Valley so we're fortunate enough to be able to live off of our investments.

I have worked for The Chemistry Department at East Carolina University in Greenville NC as an Electronics Technician for almost 38 years. My wife works at The ECU School of Medicine in the Telemedicine Department and at Pitt Memorial Hospital part-time in Patient Placement. We both proctor test such as the SAT, ACT, and PRAXIS for the ECU testing center a few Saturday mornings during the year.
I also do some volunteer work with my Church, The Clark's Neck Fire Department, The Amateur Radio Emergency Service, and the State Employees Association of North Carolina.
We both plan to retire from our state jobs next year and start slowing down some and enjoying life more.

I was a CAD Support Engineer for a semiconductor manufacturing company here in Silicon Valley for over 30 years until I "retired" at the end of 2008. Wifey was an administrative assistant for 7 years until she,too, "retired" about 2 months before I did. We decided to make our retirement official since the job market is not really geared to old pharts like us, and now we spend our time doing a bit of traveling locally. Last week we got a new "hobby" - our oldest son and his wife turned us into grandparents for the first time! Their son (our grandson) was born on 2/25/11 - 8 lbs 13 oz, 20 inches long and a TON of enjoyment!

Our house is paid off and we're living on our savings until I'm eligible for SS - two more years. My 401(k) has been turned into a Rollover IRA and is currently making us 28% per year so it will keep us comfortable once we start taking distributions...

I've re-invented myself so many times I'm loosing track. Let's see....28 yrs in healthcare administration, started three home health agencies, 6 years selling industrial equipment, bought a home improvement franchise, now an independent contractor for industrial maintenance. I'll grow up some day and figure out just what I want to be. Retire? Not in my DNA! I'll slow down to about six months a year in about 5yrs. DW is in healthcare administration with 5 to go.
