I just relieved myself!

DW and I retired 1 1/2 years ago and the we paid off everything except her car loan because it was at 3.75%. I got a bug today to pay it off and for the 1st time in 36 years of marriage we are totaly debt free.

How is that?

Great, although from the thread title I assumed this had something to do with Ex Lax.

Oh, and BTW, there are some great drugs available to prevent urinary accidents. Your doc there in FL should be very familiar with them....

Not owing anybody anything is a great feeling.

True. The only better feeling is owing someone something that you know you won't have to repay.

Congratulations!!

Though I must admit that on reading the title, I thought "Yeah, you and every drunk in the French Quarter!!"

It is. Now if I can figure out a way to not pay real estate taxes and condo fees, I'd be in heaven.

I'm always surprised how the effects of a market downdraft affect some people.

Cash, sounds like you're willing to pay my taxes and fees. Please send cashier's checks only.
