Reflecting on some folks who've posted here I'd say that's old news.

Congrats! A friend of mine, former coworker, asked if I wished I had waited until 60 to retire. (I retired at 55.) All I could do was shake my head NO! I wasn't expecting the question. But I spend 50% of my income from pensions and other investments. I'm sure he and his family spends most of his even though still working. Stepping off the treadmill was one of the best decisions of my life. You will love it!
