Congrats Shorty! I turn 60 in a few days but have been writing the rough draft for about a year now. Our plan includes selling the stick n bricks and with the market a bit hot right now, temptation might just push us over the edge in the spring. Seeing all these responses have me thinking I best get going before all the good campsites are taken

I'm 30 days from my last day to have to show up. My last compensated day is November 1. I've made my own money since before I was 10 and I have to admit I have a bit of trepidation about all of this. I hate boredom but I have so many interests. I guess it's just such a drastic change... Our finances are in order. Our Medicare and supplemental are signed up and will start when we need them. I'm not sure what bugs me about this but I still have that little worry worm squirming in the back of my thoughts... It's the same worm that was turning when I got my first paper route... 55 years ago... whispering... "Can I really do this?" Oh well... damn the torpedoes... full speed ahead!

9-30-16--5pm. The time and date I've been waiting on for 51 years. I worked at the first actual job that required a SSN number way back in 1965. 51 years later, I worked at my last job!!! Saturdays start tomorrow.

Congratulations Shorty! Wow, 51 years? In my head, 1965 doesn't seem that long ago. Have fun and enjoy your never ending weekend!

I was going into the USMC about that time 51 years ago! YOu have made it Shorty and enjoy every minute of it. I retired 11 years ago this November and have never looked back. Sold the big house in Florida, bought a smaller house in Georgia, paid everything off and put money in the bank. Hit it at just the right time. Spent the last week in Branson, and on the way home tomorrow. Loading up the 5th wheeler and headed to Hiawassee, GA for 10 days on Tuesday. Going to the Georiga Mountain FAll Festival. Come on down!

It really doesn't seem that long ago. I was 9 in '65 and mowing lawns for $5 each. Made $60 in one summer and thought I was rich! My parents let me buy a new Schwinn 5-speed bike with the banana seat with the money. Congrats again Shorty and I'll be joining you in 730 days.

Hey Shorty!

On Sunday night, set your alarm to get up like you are going to work and when it goes off Monday morning, throw it out the window and go back to sleep.

Congrats!

Murff, I will have to set the alarm Monday. Kitty has five more working days then she RETIRES, Oct 7th.

Thanks to all that have responded. It is the beginning of a new adventure for Kitty and me. Maybe we can stand each other for 24/7 for the first time in 47 years.
