Isn't it against the law to rip that tag off the side? Unless it has a cover on it....

Re: A little bit worried about retirement

[QUOTE=hydro462;10450994]I think about how happy my parents, aunts and uncles were without having a lot of money back in the old days..

My mom is the " Baby of the family" She will be 80 in March. the youngest of 6 kids, four are still alive and actually, pretty well.
I love visiting my Mom, and my Aunts and Uncles. What a great and happy group of retired people!
My Father passed at 52. Worked hard his whole life, Finally became an empty nester and BAM! Cancer
My father in law is a tough old bird too and will be 88 in June.


Me? I can start collecting from my retirement in 2.5 years at 56. I can also serve until I am 60 ( or retire and start to collect at 59)
I just signed my last reenlistment. a buddy once said that at 50 it is like someone flipped a switch and stuff starts hurting.
Stuff is starting to hurt despite a few workouts a week when time permits.
I am dreaming of my 60th Birthday / retirement party and I will draw SSi at 62.
All I have to do now is stay healthy, pay off my debts and live frugally. I plan to be at Zero Debt by then.
Good Luck to everyone! Watchout for that childish a-hole in the '59 El Camino rippin up the streets on his way to a golf course or fishin hole in 2024!

Re: A little bit worried about retirement

Well fellas,

I started this thread almost a year ago.

Just turned in my notice. I'm retiring Feb. 28, finally. Still worried about it, lol, but its time. I'm tired and ready to do something else. Thanks so much to all the responses I received on this thread. Some very good advice. I may put together a couple of cars to sell. I'm also getting back into flying and building RC airplanes. I've already have a hobby shop and a couple of guys willing to buy what I build. They actually pay decent money for that, lol.

Anyway, thanks again. I'm not going anywhere, still have my own chevelles and will have till the day I die.

Re: A little bit worried about retirement

Yes, enjoy your retirement. Before you know it you won't remember what day of the week it is because they all become Saturdays.

Re: A little bit worried about retirement

Good for you, Richard....ENJOY!! Hopefully, you have some sort of plan in place that can be easily modified as circumstances dictate. The important thing is you have made a choice that is yours alone so.....move ahead, have fun, cruise when you can, and keep checking in here.

Re: A little bit worried about retirement

Been a great thread to follow for me as I am probably a year behind you. And share some of the same concerns. A few of my customers have retired the last couple of years and we keep in touch. Two common remarks

You do not need as much money to survive (depending on good health of course)
and
You need a hobby

I guess at some point it is like doing anything else for the first time. A combination of excitement and fear at the same time.

Hope it works out well for you. Thanks for the thread.
