Ok, I'll play.

1--Various Quality Assurance and Compliance managment positions in Medical Device and Pharmaceutical manufacturing. Retired last Friday.

2-- Age 54

3--Married (almost 3 years ago for 3rd time; divorced, widowed and now happily married)..I have two sons, ages 22 and 27; both are single with no kids (I hope!) DW has two daughters...31 and 35 both have two kids each so I was an instant grandfather.

4--Utah but lived in TX, TN, Puerto Rico, NC, IL, and PA.

5--2-3 times a day but who knows now that I am retired?

Re: Where are you from? Age? Retired yet?

I really expected more of us to be Californians, preparing to retire on a nestegg enhanced by home equity.

There are a surprisingly large number of Texans in this thread, so far, and not all that many Californians, so far. Interesting!

2. Age 47. Hope to hang it up at 50 or earlier even though job is for the most part pretty good.

3. Single no kids.

4. Grew up all over the place. Currently in suburban San Diego.

5. If I'm in town I check in most days.

Actually still open to marriage but the window for child rearing has closed.

PS Just saw want2retire's message. I have sort of decided to stay put here in SD even though the home equity moved elsewhere would enable me to ER in Jan 08. I'm a little wobbly on that decision. Temptation abounds!
