Unexpectedly retired early

Hi all, HexadTom here. I am 63 and have been disabled since 2005, so I "retired" early whether I wanted to or not. I am married; my wife is still working. We have two grown daughters. We do have a mortgage that will last another 12 years. We live in Bristol, TN/VA and really enjoy it here.

Our portfolio, as it is now, is way too heavy on equities for our situation and I am working on a total restructure. I am going to post some more info and my proposed portfolio on the FIRE & Money forum for comments & suggestions on allocations and fund selections.
