    Fantastic, and good luck.

    Do not hesitate coming back to this thread if you have any questions of frustrations. Most men find the greatest problem of retirement is bordom. Most women discover the greatest problem with their husband retireing is having him underfoot, micromanaging, wanting to be involved in everything. Take it slow, find a pace that makes you comfortable. Do not eat more. (And that's from personal experience.)

    I just thought I would slip this in here to get it off my chest. One must be very careful what one says at the office right now.

    Capt_buzzard's now retired
    We hope he's having fun
    With well earned loot and wicked gals
    Cavorting in the sun

    Bricapspi's also now retired
    He got it off his chest
    Spoke in the garden carelessly
    And copped eternal rest RIP

    Lon retired at age 56.
    He's never been bored and he's almost 76
    He greets each day with a great big smile
    And for a gourmet meal he'd walk a mile
    He plays lots of sports and does adventurous stuff
    Computers and high tech things are just not enough
    FG and other forums can be a delight especially when you can't sleep in the middle of the night.

    I love my work and don't plan to retire.
    It's a good thing, too, 'cause I never saved any money and will have to rely on Social security if I do retire.

    Unless my 401-L comes in.

Enjoy work while you can, you'll never know if retirement is for you untill you are living it!! Like others have said, maybe to never "fully" retire is the answer!!!

    Well lookie here, it's almost "5" years ago (end of next month is full 5) I retired!!! I had doubts, concerns, and fears of the unknown, and I can now say with absolute certainty that "retirement is great"!!! Everything my retired friends told me before I retired was true, "every day is Saturday & Sunday"! You're your own boss, to do what you want, when you want, "if" you want! A word to the wise, while you're working, just be sure to save as much as you can for retirement, cause it sorta just sneaks up you when you're not looking! Cause "time" without "money", can turn out to be a bad thing!
    I always had a percentage of my salary automatically deducted from my pay each month. Luckily for me, I really heavily socked it away the last 10 years before retiring. And am now very financially sound!

    Well the retirement age in this country now is 67 for men and 65 for women. It used to be 65 for men and 60 for women. It's still 70 for doctors.


    the empty nest syndrome for women is very much like the retirment of men from the workforce although it tends to happen a lot earlier. so guys take care of your women when the last child leaves home .....it can be daunting for women and an extremely stressful and emotional time for them.
