Paid off my car loan and put that on the mortgage, but then back then the rate was 11% so I felt that was a good return on my money. I went to part time work in '97 and fully retired this January...

If I waited until I had a million I'd still be workin'. We don't know if we'll be able to do anything physically later on, or heck, if we'll even wake up tomorrow!



That's the truth. :o)
And... if my mortgage was 11% I'd be paying it off tomorrow!
But with less than 6% (and deductible, too) it's hard to decide.
