Had a thread some time back by "imoldernu" on the subject but did not go back to check the details. He and I are getting a little long in the tooth but can't remember who is the oldest.

I'll be 77 in September. Retired 5-1-88 at 51.5 years of age. In a couple weeks I'll be celebrating my 25th year of retirement. What a joy it has been. Never regretted for one minute the fact that I went out so young. Every day has been an adventure and if I die tomorrow, I'll have no regrets. It feels good to know the only day I have to get up at a certain time is on my golf days.

Best wishes to everyone.

I hope to maintain my positive outlook through retirement like you are doing Johnnie! I'm 48 and retired at 45.

Some of us weren't this old when it all started. We got older over the last ten years.

Retired at 50 and turn 54 in a month. Many things in life I would do different, but retiring at 50(or earlier if possible) is not one...

I am a fortunate man.

That last post by Dawg 52 is a tough act to follow!
Anyway, I'm 62 and have been retired for two years now.
