Excellent, thanks.

I find myself tempted to fill in the distance between 7'0" and 10'0" in six-inch increments, inclusive. Maybe two 10'0"s would be even better. That way we'd have enough for all our houseguests without having to rent...


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.

67, according to your first post you shouldn't have a problem living off of your money. I think most forum members would have retired long ago in your position.
