Re: Done ERd today

Sounds like me when I left at 54. I was coach of the cross-country team.

You know the term "rabbit".

That was me!

I left in June '97 and I swore I WOULD NEVER BE ONE OF THOSE OLD RETIRED FARTS WHO TOOK AWAY A JOB FROM A ROOKIE.

I remember when I was a kid in the 50's and my dad was in his late 30's. He was a RR brakeman but was being constantly laid off because the oldtimers who had had a long career couldn't give it up and let a younger man earn a decent living for his family.

Contratulations, newguy, I am now in my 7th month of retirement from teaching and still feel the euphoria. We've also relocated to a different state and are relishing the fresh air, freedom from the Southern California rat race, no state sales tax, and our new much lower cost of living.

That is probably my one mistake, the tax structure in NC is not super, but it sure is lower than NJ!!

Plus having my wife HAPPY around her family will help.

So I might have to do a few extra weeks of sub teaching or other easy fun part time work will pay for the small extra tax that I might have to pay. They tax your cars property tax adds up to about 390.00 a year for our vehicles. The real estate tax is 3300K a year. Hey I will make almost a 100 dollars a day sitting in a classroom being a sub teacher with no real difficult requirements. Then I got the varsity track coaching position at one of the best private schools in NC for this spring.

Kool!
