You don't seem so grumpy to me, especially alongside some of the more dedicated grumpy posters.

Are you planning to downgrade to "curmudgeon" or even to mellow to "old phart"?

57 and DW is 58, but with a 1 week old grandson (first one) I'm starting to count the other way, may reach 44 by the end of the month.

61 in two weeks. am really surprised that there are so many younger folks here. smart. if you are really serious about early retirement, learning and preparing can make it possible.

Wildcat did you go to U Kentucky? I am the same age and based on your screen name choice we may have gone to the same school.

Re: how old are you?

I'm 57. I've given up on "early" retirement, just planning to quit working at 59. Looks like there should be an "already there" forum, an "on the verge" forum and a "long ways to go" forum.

Re: how old are you?

Went to Jefferson Community College in Loo-a-vul (part of UofK), though I'm still an IU Hoosier fan (somewhat...). Went to UTD (Dallas/Richarson), part of UofTx.

Don't really root for anyone; I figure I've been out of school so long that no one cares where I went, including me... :P

56 (retired at 55)...what a long, strange trip it's been!

Haven't changed much over the years, just a little more 'tude since most of my success/screw-ups are behind me instead of of ahead of me*

Re: how old are you?

Ok, I had to do a quick tally...at least the ones I could interpret. (Why didn't we just do a poll??)

21-29: Nine
30-34: Six
35-39: Five
40-44: Thirteen
45-49: Seven
50-54: Nineteen (eleven of which are 51!)
55-59: Ten
60- Infinity: Eight
