Well, in a little more than a month from now I will turn 58 years old. My wife is retiring in September and wants me to also. We built a house in Havasu five years ago as a "weekend" home and now she wants to move there full time. RETIRE! Heck you gotta be old to retire. I'm not old, am I? I've been going to the river since I was eight. Had every kind of boat (4 of them now), muscle cars, sand drag cars, buggys, motorcycles, RZR, Jeep, etc. I still feel like I'm young. I still love my toys. Heck, I still want some more! If I retire, I feel like I'm just waiting to die. How did I get this old?

Heck with all those toys your lucky you got to be that old. I retired a 56 and like you I love my toys. I still Jet ski several times a week and we go the the sand dunes as much as possible during the cooler months. 58, you are not old and enjoy it while you can. I go the the VA once in a while and see some of the guys that go there that are my age or younger and am thank full for my health. Retire and enjoy!!!!!:):)

"Old"?

You are only as old as your health and attitude allow. If you enjoy what you do, and have your health, I reccomend you continue to work. Maybe work a shorter week to allow more "play time". I retired at 65. I am now 68 and building my second street rod since retiring. I still enjoy boating, and retired to a beautiful lake in southern MO.

I was 50 last October and am disability retired a couple years ago.
I, to wonder how the heck I got here so darn fast.
Get out there and enjoy the life you have earned. Work a little if it gives you pleasure, but living life with the wife is where your focus needs to be, IMHO...

Steve...just keep running with the young guys. Maybe we need to go run that daytona. I'll probably be out there this weekend with my dad. We are picking up the magic deck. Tell Mel i said hi, and give me a call sometime.

I went to the mall today in Brea.....That will make you feel old quick :)

I hate friggin' malls. Ended up buying a new pair of flip flops and that was it. Some lady grabbed me and try to sale me $100. worth of expoliating creams and washes. She was cute so I let her do her thing but wasn't going to buy anything. If nothing else she got to practice on me :) She knew the deal though.
