Recommended Posts

Both Chuck and I retired from Aerospace on the same day. I got him by 2 hours because I left at lunch. But I stated practicing by not coming until 8:30am and leaving at 1pm for the last 2 months, and taking a few sicks days, didn't want to be overcome by the sudden shock of going to full stop.

I retired Nov 1st 2011 after 40 years in Law Enforcement.

I do get to see some of the guys when they stop me for speeding, etc.

Man, you guys get up way to early; I get up at 0930, except on Match days.........................

Like Pat said, best job ever................

]getting jealous reading this posts... We decided we want to be financially independent with the ability to retire whenever we want. I really like my job but can't say the same about the Mrs. so even though I'm younger in the market (31ish and had med school to deal with so started late) We're socking away as much money into retirement as we can. working on learning how to invest in the market, too. I think this financial foray might hurt the gun budget short term but really make it happen long term.

Any tips or ideas or things I should be reading to catch up/get ahead?

"The Millionaire Next Door", 1998, by Thomas Stanley, PhD and William Danko, PhD

The book is 17 years old, but while the dollar amounts are dated, the concepts are not. These two researchers don't present a get rich quick scheme: what they did was to apply research protocol designed questionnaires and interviews to first generation self made millionaires to find some basic characteristics and approaches to wealth building that anybody with some common sense and a little discipline can apply over time.

I recommend it to anybody who is serious about making themselves financially secure.
