New and Happy I Think.

52 and just took an early retirement from teaching in NYC. I said it was just too much money to live on the Island. Long Island anymore. Moved to Wilmington NC and have a pension of about 35 thousand dollars with good medical for both meand the wife. She gets a small pension in the range of 3 thousand dollars this december from a job she had for over 20 years. Anyway we paid cash for a real nice house and well kinda look around at all the mess in the markets and say wow, I think we are ok. Have some money in an online MM bank at 3+ % and owe money to not a soul. Kids are grown and doing well. I do some freelance work on the side and will make I guess another 15 to 20 thousand a year.

Hope to be able to participate on this forum.

Been reading for years.

Welcome to the form YR and welcome to North Carolina. I'm an adopted Tar Heel living with my familyin Winston-Salem. My eldest daugher is in college in Wilmington and loves the town. Lot's of beauty, history and character there, especially in the downtown area. DW and I may RE there in the future, as we love it too!
Hope y'all are happy there and enjoy.
