I'm slow to understand the message at times, Alf. Or, so it seems.

I will at least be ramping down over the next couple years, likely dropping employees, and just picking up the odd job here and there, something that gives me lots of time off in between.

Full retirement by 60 would be nice.

But you will have aged by then too. I think I have to resign to never getting to be as old as you.

As most of us retirees know as will Jim when he finally retires, there are many ways to spend money while working which you don't do when retired. In Jim's case he won't have to run that big truck anymore. He already has some savings now like not having to visit the barber

For a while, I will likely only semi-retire, so may need to keep the big truck. However, I am considering just dumping the Pilot instead. It is no good for work, and I can use the F-350 whenever I need to tow. I took it to Osoyoos, and actually got better mileage than I have in the past with the Pilot. Not as good for destination driving while the trailer is in the campground though.

I have amortized the cost of the hair trimmer and electricity for my hair cuts over the last 15 years, and it now works out to being less than $0.15 per cut, with the average price going down as the trimmer ages.
