We have owned homes in the Shreveport area (24 years) and our new home in Pearl River (built 2005). We have just been coming home once a month at these locations while working out of state.

The upcoming move next week will be the last time we are moving. We will now have two households of furniture, lawn equipment, kitchen wares, beds, towels, electronics, etc. to do something with.

My sympathies on the move. Did it last summer and don't ever want to do it again.

+1 Compressing from two houses to one is not easy, particularly if one of the two of you is a packrat and has difficulty letting things go (DW in my case). It was painful.

Since 1989 we have moved every 1 1/2 to 2 years.

I am not a packrat, but I am an electronics nut. We now have 4 PC's (one is a HTPC), two HD projectors with screens (133" & 92") plus 4 other HDTV's (60", 55", 40" & 32"). Two complete 5.1 stereo setup's including speakers and subwoofer's. Three blu-ray players and two DVD players. I will be having a huge electronics sale once we get settled in.

I've fished some tournaments launched out of the Pearl River near Slidell/Rigolets.

The $800 I mentioned is her estimate of what she will draw when she retires at 62 not off of mine. All of the $ amounts I keep bringing up are our estimated retirement incomes. If I get $1,600/month (SS) and then draw out 3% of the $500,000 for $1,250/month for a total of $2,850 month. This is what I could get (if needed) while she is still working. I do not foresee needing this much. Once she retires then the $1,850 will increase by $800+- for a monthly total of $3,650/month. Of course she is hoping that we can survive on my $$ where she can quit early.

Welcome!

I have a lot of family in the Pearl River area. My grandfather operated the local airport there for decades before he passed away.
