Strange Day

A place to talk about anything well just about anything (this is a family show remember).

Strange Day

Postby Blue Bravo » Wed Dec 05, 2007 8:31 pm

Went into Newcastle this morning for an appointment with Financial Planner to talk about retirement in February. Made things clearer and helped make some important decisions. :)

This afternoon attended the funeral of a work mate who dies at age 57. :(

Certainly reinforced that the decision to retire while we are still in pretty good health was the right one. :)

Come on February :armsup

The sad thing is that no one has any idea of how long they are here for. I lost my Fiancé a few years back and he was only 29. It would be good if we knew exactly when our time was going to be up so that we could use some of that money and enjoy it while we are here.
Sorry for your loss.

Hear what your saying guys. My family buried my 96 year old grandmother yesterday and her husband died 27 years ago. You can't plan for that. Perhaps better to retire earlier with less than die rich at 65. Scott.
