Hopefully, you will, like me, discover that you don't have to count sheets of toilet paper, and hopefully, you will discover that sooner than I did.
A buddy of mine that covered personal finance said retirement is described as "Go Go, Go Slow and then No Go". Need to keep in mind that the older you get, the less you will need.
Health is a greater issue than money.

Great to hear that Donna. I believe that you will find out that retirement is NOT over-rated one bit! Now Ten Forward can finally be on the road as much as it wants to be.

THANKS so much everyone, truly. WHY does everyone start working (in their 20s?) and worry about the future? My 91 y/o mother (bless her) has often told me.. you can ALWAYS make more money... but you can NEVER make more time. It has taken me 63 years to realize... my Mom is one smart lady.


Wishing you ALL well, and a whole lot of time... for those memory makers!

But still am waiting to hear about the new and improved mold improvements.... not sure how that happens when you've already reached perfection (without slides and something less than 25' long).
Congrats on the retirement. And I hear that one of the new options ETI is going to offer is an automatic cleaning/waxing exterior and self cleaning interior, although the technical details are still under wraps.
