I didn't think anyone on the Boglehead forum ever retired

Here is a post from the boglehead forum that I read this AM:

http://www.early-retirement.org/foru...eply&p=1198587

"$1.5 at fifty and retired. Are you serious?
We are 64 and 70. I have a pension and VA compensation from Vietnam, both have health care coverage and SS and we wonder if OUR portfolio of $1.4 will last the rest of our lives. As some of the others said, you might want to work a little longer or work p/t. You have done a tremendous job up to now, but you might be a little impatient."

It is interesting to see the different perspectives between this board and the boglehead board. A lot of the Bogleheads don't seem to be as worried about running out of time as they are running out of money.

That goes for a lot of people I know. Time is always short, either for us or for the people we want to spend it with.

Hey that is good. We need those taxpayers to keep up their contributions.

(I was surprised when my brother retired at 42 but then he only was retired for 28 years.)
