I've retired three times now. It ain't what it's cracked up to be.

HA! I told a friend that once, he said he didn't have a problem giving up working. I told him from where I was watching he had never started.

Odometer has turned over 'bout 3 times for me. The shocks are shot, paint starting to fade and the tranny slips. So far no rust, but do run a little rough in the morning. Car Fax? Don't even think 'boutit. Not for sale anyway, just park me in the front yard when I quit runnin'

At about 90 or 95. I enjoy working and enjoy spending time w/ coworkers.

Thanks C-dub! I retired at 53, again at 60, again at 62. If I can get this old back patched up I'll be out looking again in a few months. The same people that ask why I don't stay home wouldn't do the things I can.

"Anybody with a trade can work as long as they want. A welder, a carpenter, an electrician. They don't necessarily need to retire. My music wasn't made to take me one place to another so I can retire early."

I retired in January, but I'd go back to work at the right job.

I believe the USA has about the highest retirement age in the world. The French retire I believe at 47. CEO's pay raised 12% but the working class didn't see that salary raise. I'll retire when the Aliens probe me for more information on area 51. Lake Clark glows in the dark under the right conditions. These conditions cause me to BS on Journal World blogs so I might retire if I can save up enough $$.

I am 32 and I can probably comfortably retire at 60. As long as my health holds and I still have a job, I will probably work until 70 because my wife is a few years younger than me.
