I guess I just break rules by my nature. <s>

I did take some out this year because we NEEDED some to finish our addition! However, it is already climbing back up toward where it was when I started withdrawing, so... I guess it's not so bad.

In our case, Social Security (mostly) and a small pension pretty much cover retirement living expenses, except for major purchases and/or a construction project, of course, so occasional withdrawals (when we are not taking any out otherwise) don't seem that bad.
