Default Life is good.

I had 2 great things happen to me this last week.
1 being I am retired and can drive my Vette when and where ever I want, Can you say road trip?
2nd being I paid off my car.... I am 1 happy camper.
Life is good.

Awesome Mr. Bill.....gotta be a great feeling.

I got my "final payment" notice today so one more and it's mine.

Retirement is not quite so immediate for me but it's getting close.

Road trip indeed dude.....where ya going?

Retirement and no car payments - that's the ticket!

Congratulations! You know you're truly retired when you can't remember what day of the week it is. It's also nice knowing when you get up in the morning that you can do whatever you damn well please. Enjoy!
