I am retired.
And I don't care how big your truck is."

64 here - not even married yet! (he makes me research stuff - but I enjoy it, so got full credit for learning new stuff as a result of the partner! LOL) He still makes me giggle and laugh...and does not really piss me off. Our strengths & weaknesses complement each other's...maybe a first born, last born or yin-yang thing...who really cares - it works, and I like it!

Ha - she's awesome...good luck with your relationship musings

I started keeping score on a piece of scratch paper but around the third question I realized "C'mon... straight 70 here!"

As I scanned this text without realizing my parsing error, my first thought was "Well, that depends. What else is she wearing?"

The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
