On second thought, does 15 years make one veteran retiree, or just a werl experienced one. Kind of like master of the trade, as opposed to and apprentice retiree?

There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.

Congratulations audreyh1! I always enjoy reading your posts and the insight you share here. I am only into this retirement thing 4 months now and your 15 year post made me want to go back and look at some of your original threads. Especially liked the"Was it freaky to start living on investments?" one. You said, "I think it took me 2 or 3 years of living non-paycheck to start feeling financially secure again. Just thought I'd throw this out there. It's quite a psychological adjustment." I certainly feel that way now and am looking forward to the time when it will be normal. I still feel kind of like I am on vacation. Not complaining though, I am completely free of any remorse for leaving or any desire to go back. Just waiting for it to be normal. Looking forward to seeing many more years of future postings from you. Congratulations again!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

As it happens, I'm turning 55 in October.

Fingers crossed!

Thanks so much everybody!

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
