Hello at 72

Hi, I am 72 years old and retired for 11 years, but not too old to get some more education. I am looking forward to reading and posting in this forum.

I see you retired at 61. That's also my plan. Anything you learned about retiring at 61 that I could learn, please pass it along.
Can't you see yourself in the nursing home saying, " Darn! Wish I'd spent more time at the office instead of wasting time with family and friends."
