The countdown has begun.

Hi, I am 62 and have 82 working days, until I turn 63. I will retire on June 2, which is the day before my birthday. I'm not an early retiree, but I'm an excited one.
I've been enjoying the forums for about a week now, and I look forward to further reading and contributing.

Slow down and smell the roses. Give counsel to someone younger. Impart wisdom where you can then get out.

Hi! I retired last year at 63, and I still feel like a early retiree compared with people around me, so welcome!

Hi Line Dawg welcome to you. This is a great group of folks that have one religion - LBYM. Perhaps they have other religions but that's the one I think is common among us all.

Also, be prepared for your sense of humor to grow and become twisted. There are several members who have that type of humor.

I am not retired and am thinking about whether I will live up to my screen name. Will find out in the next 6 months or so. Possibly not by choice. But because of LBYM I don't care either way :-)

Hiya Line Dawg! I'm 61 years old w/ 9 months to go - I'll be 62 when I retire. Don't sweat your age and supposedly "late" retirement - let's be thankful for every day the Good Lord gives us. I think there are quite a few of us "late retirees" in here, and remember - not everyone gets this opportunity, so enjoy!

I'm looking forward to seeing more posts from you. And - welcome!
