Reintroduction time

Hi All,
Iíve been a member for quite some time, but havenít posted for awhile. The reason for this is: I retired October 2017 and have been running around doing all sorts of cool retirement stuff

I had more time to participate in the forum when I was chained to a desk

But post retirement projects are nearing completion and I find myself home more now with virus related travel reduction. I can say that ER is greater than I imagined, and the folks on this forum were a real encouragement to just trust the numbers and make it happen. I look forward to participating in the discussions and sharing my experiences in the world of ER.
Hankster

Welcome back! I remember those days posting here while chained to a desk. But hey - at least we were getting paid for it.

Thank you. The only thing I miss: getting paid to surf the web

I still remember how happy I was when I first calculated how much I was being paid for my morning bathroom at my first job after receiving my degree.

This was well before surfing the Internet from work was possible. Zen and the Art of the Internet had just been published!
