31.* It is great to see other people in their 30's with the same interest of retiring at an early age.

55, pushing hard on 56. Looking forward to retirement at 58 since I was 33. Hoped there would be a chance to go earlier but it's not gonna happen.

I have underwear older than YOU!

When it cant be worn as underwear anymore, it makes a perfectly suitable headband.

Re: how old are you?

And whatever isnt clinging to the 'headband', where it can become a handy neck or eye shade...can be used to wipe oil dipsticks for another 10-15 years.

Men understand this. Women do not.

With hindsight I realized it was all in my head. Thinking waaaay too much about what I needed to do to succeed instead of just enjoying my successes. Thank god I was too scared to jump at the time and DW put up wit me.
