You'll reflect back on this post often while you're waiting on the phonecalls from your children that never come, and you'll say 'Why didn't I listen to Dave?'. You'll spend your last days in some blemish on a map like Sarasota, begging for the opportunity to do it all over, BUT YOU CAN'T.

This why I believe "retirement" age should be from 20 to 40 and working age should be 40+

Everyone would be happier and healthier.
