Texarkandy, welcome back through the revolving door, “there’s no place like home.”

Guys can change their minds, twice! Hum, that would made a good thread topic.

Be sure to add your name to this poll for 2009 retirees:

2009 retirees

On your first day of freedom, I got myself busted at the theater for this shot of the curtain before the curtain. Loved this title line, “Some are born wicked and some have it thrust upon them.” And this retiree-relevant one, “Let me teach you about the unexamined life.”

What’s on your E-R agenda, TK? Enjoy.

Congrats to you! Now you don't have to suffer the commute to work, have quick lunches, have to go to work even though you are not 100% feeling well ......I am 49 and intend to retire when I am 50. The discouraging thing is that when I told my mum that, she said 50 is too young to retire (she's always been a housewife!). She thinks I should work longer.I was amazed because none of my other sisters worked past 47. One even retired at 38. Of course, she is not happy that they are retired Well, I don't need her approval to retire, so hope I join the retired group when I am 50.

You are so evolved, I got serious about w*rk at about age 48, that was a very energetic time in my life and would have been a perfect time to be free. But it seems to me that the concept of w*rk never goes away, we still have to do housew*rk, our bookkeeping, planning, etc.

Congrats and welcome to the club.

If I see you on the street, I'll be able to recognize you. ... you'll be the one with the big smile on your face, I'll be the sh*t eating grin looking back at you
