My 403B had grown nicely to about $206,000 ...
So now I am living on like $17,000 a year and loving it.

This strikes me as a scarily high percentage withdrawl. Is this indexed at all for inflation? How will it hold up in a prolonged bear market? Not to rain on your parade, but there may be some things to think about here if you don't want to go back to cleaning animal cages.

Of course, you may well have already thought of them! Please don't take these questions as mindless poking, if you have good answers I'd love to hear them!
