Congrats to OP and all the other retirees. Thanks for all the stories. Keeps the rest of us inspired. Heck just the other day DW told me that I was talking in my sleep. Appears that I had a nice long conversation with someone about early retirement hehehe.

Mentally we are ready but financially not there yet. So Im gonna continue to enjoy posts like these and dream the dream.

Congrats on 15 years, Audrey. Something to think about: if you'd retired "on time" instead of early you'd be 80. The value of all those years of relative youth in retirement are truly priceless.
