I've posted about it previously. A few times. Rather than bore everyone again, I'll give the short version. After mine and my wife's health issues I realized -I mean really realized- that "average" life expectancy is just an average. Lots of people don't make it to the "average". I didn't want to die chained to my desk. If COVID had not hit I would have retired last fall. I plan to retire by the end of this year. Live life while I still can, before I become infirmed or worse. I have no assurance I'll reach "average". No one does.
