Flunked retirement

Hi All,

I'm a 50 yr old guy who burned out and quit the rat race only to be lured back a year later. So now I'm on retirement probation until I accumulate just a few more acorns. Long time lurker and fan of the board...

Welcome! Did you flunk because you needed more acorns or just too good of a deal to pass up?

A little of both. Besides, they are crunchy and full of protein.
