    Hey Snooz, good to see you got to retire!

    I retired over 11 years ago, (I took early retirement too) as I saw too many of my friends waiting for their full retirement age, and before they got to retire they checked out! (went to heaven)

    Anyway, after only a few weeks into retirement I said to myself how in the hell did I ever like working! I can't imagine ever having had to work.

    And you're right, enjoy all you can do now while you are still young enough to do it! As you get older, you may slow down some on wanting to travel and go sightseeing all over a foreign country, or wherever!

    Retirement is Grand! (You'll see) Enjoy it to the fullest!

    Well, our retirement just hit a delay.
    A major repair job is needed to the Dancer. It will take a nice chunk of our meager retirement fund. another few months of working to replenish.

    Body. The overhead area got water in it, and the plywood disassembled.
    Apparently, it had happened before, and someone had glued it back together before we bought it.
    Then we had a pretty massive wind storm blow through.
    It took out my nephew's barn. I didn't notice the damage on the Dancer, until after a week of rainstorms.
    By then, there was plenty of water in there, which I discovered when I moved it to give it a bath, and water started pouring out of the paneling.
    Hopefully Insurance will cover some of it.

    Re: What retirement looks like

    I'm not entirely sure what "retirement age" means these days but it used to be the age at which the state pension benefit begins unless the recipient asks for it to be deferred. In the UK it was 65 for men and 60-61 for women until the last couple of years when these were equalized at 65 years and the retirement age started to drift upward. The drift has so far only involved a few months. Where the government intends to take it is undecided, so they claim.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    In the US, we can begin collecting a reduced pension at 62, and depending on age, full pension starting now at 66, or wait until 70 and collect an increased amount. All of those depending on what you earned over the time you have been working. Well, the last year and a half, at least.

    Slap a bit of Plastic Padding or Silicon in the holes, whatever is easiest.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth
