Well I will be 63 in a couple of weeks. And I have to agree with all of you and your comments..... It started hitting me around 50. Both hips replaced, needing knees done, had really good vision up until about a year or 2 ago. Needing reading glasses all of the time now a days. I have been retired now for about 4-5 yrs. When my wife and I were having to go to all of these Clinical Trial Studies, weekly and almost daily hospital visits for her Leukemia, and of course some of my own health issues, it came to fruition.

Between the 2 of us, her retirement income from her work, and my savings and 401K, all the bills are paid every month, and some left over for play money. But getting older is no joke. Never would have thought I am a Senior Citizen. I used to party my ass off and never thought it would end. It does and it will become reality, and hit you like a ton of bricks.

Bottom line, enjoy and love your family, and enjoy your life. It goes by fast, and it won't slow down for you to catch up.

I turn 52 on the 19 th. At my company, when your age plus years of service equal 65 you can take early retirement package from the company. I qualify for that in Oct if I give a 6 month notice. I would be fully vested in stock options etc. I’m considering taking it and then looking for a new job. Our company was sold a few days ago but won’t close until 3 rd Qtr. Who knows what’s going to go down at that point. Or I may wait and see if they offer me a package to walk. Salary is usually for 15 months and half of what normal Qtr bonus is
