Is the Falling dollar changing your plans
Thanks Jack!!! My name is Tom, not trying to be secretive. We''ve pretty much decided that one more year is the most we''ll work before retiring. My wife''s 56 year old co-worker has cancer and has been sent home to die as the cancer has spread too much. She has cried a lot over her friend. Another year will allow us to have a paid-for boat.. But we''d like to leave NOW. My brother in law retired early(that or be laid off) just before the stock market crash and has since gone back to work at less than half the salary. That has made us a little more cautious. But one thing is certain, "if we wait long enough we''ll be dead"
