Welcome to the good life.
I retired at 65.5 years, not quite 3 years ago.
Lovin' every minute of it!

Ah, the retired life. Where the honey-dos replace the work week and the weekend. Best defense is being old and tired instead of happy to be retired. Congrats!!

Well done Jim, another 20 years or so for me, or until I hit that $5 mil mark in my retirement fund. So I guess 20+ more to go

I retired at 56. Once the numbers work for you, do it. If you love your job, keep doing it it.

Congratulations Jim. I can't imagine how good this must feel. But in another 16 months I will be in your position.

I retired at 60, but didn't realize it until 62 which is when I gave up a fruitless mid recession job search.
Frustrating then, but I am really enjoying life now though. I took my oldest grandson to bowl a couple of games this morning.
