Yup, where else but in an early retirement forum can someone say this and everyone rallies around it happily?

Congrats, Nick.

Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.
