I'm in the thick of it and very happy with the plan. I think it comes down to the BIG # 1 and thats health. The money is not that big a deal. I spent decades in the security business and I realized I lost the passion after years of listening to and seeing the same misery. So I set a goal for myself, something completely removed from the previous journey, a retirement project that would be something special and it's underway just outside of Huntsville. I'd heard it's the journey not so much the destination and I couldn't agree more. Along the way I've found great driving roads with little to no traffic so thats helpful in the journey.

Now that I have the perfect home made pasta recipe, I'm starting work on the perfect chinese egg fried rice recipe!

Fvcked it up all afternoon. Rice is WAY harder than pasta.

Tidied up a bit in the basement, sorting through stuff I've accumulated in the past 25 years...

Now at my son's major peewee game in Orangeville

Oh for God's sake!! I hope that was tongue in cheek!!

I'll consider scaling back or retiring when I reach 70 or so, retiring before that seems a bit pathetic to me!!

If you can reduce your work week, do it. You'll never regret it.
I'm 58, retired at 53, so I guess I took the pathetic route. Now, my days are mine (or my wife's). I still need and crave mentally-challenging projects, but I get to define them. Travel, woodworking, rebuilding motorcycles, tinkering with cars, looking forward to teaching my grandson which end of a wrench to hold, how to strike an arc, and what all the other tools in Grampie's shop are for. Retiring is the best thing I've done, and I found I'm pretty good at it.

No I didnt , just like I said to the CRA agent , but hold on while I do , then went and read them and asked could you please show me where it says that! Then told him I wanted to speak to his superior as he was assuming things that made him look like he hadnt and taking liberties that he was not entitled to. Its OT and please do not suppress freedom of speech. Political? Politicians lie all the time to get re elected.....or rather make promises and then renege to be PC. ( not the party) . Controversial...... every topic in this forum could be deemed controversial..( best way to get informed of all sides). Slur.... ? Not really, would offend me if it wasnt true nor if it was true.......provacative...... only if you dont like hearing the truth or someone opinion. Read below

Of course it was. This is OT and as per guidlines afaik and iirc lattitude is allowed. Otherwise he must have been one of the many who voted liberal. ( Not that there is anything wrong with that ). And for that I applaud him for stepping out of the closet as I have yet to find someone who did ! T&C as well

I know, Jerry was a funny guy.

Justin on the other hand is downright dangerous.
