"According to a recent poll, nearly 28% of baby boomers (born 1946-1964) say they are retired. But only 11% of boomers say they are "strongly convinced" they will be able to retire in comfort. (Clearly there are some who are "retired" who would rather be working.)" - Goofyhoofy

I'd only go back to work if I absolutely had to. Not sure what I'd do either if I had to go back to work; or if anybody would want me. I'm pretty much shot and no way could I compete with some young whippersnapper fresh out of college.

I'm lucky I got it as good as I do. Life has been kind to me. Always in the back of my mind is the idea "there but for the grace of God go I."
