Wolverine, are you dripping into a mix of large and small cap stocks?

Large caps. The only less-than-large cap I have is Lancaster Colony. The rest of very familiar names. My thought process being that I have a job that is physically demanding, and at age 56 (less than two months) an unplanned early retirement is always right around the corner. If that sad event were to happen, I'd need current income to survive. I am also a military retiree, so I get a check every month from Uncle Sam.

Between the two streams I get $20K a year. Hardly a king's ransom, but enough to survive on for one person.
