Tesla, I've been telling my parents the same thing for years now, but they refuse to cooperate. They simply refuse to retire. They are active and healthy seventy-three-year-olds who still enjoy what they do. Perhaps just the knowledge they can walk away any day they want to is enough for them. They aren't tour the country in a motor home types. All the kids and grandkids live within twenty minutes, so they aren't moving to The Villages or Arizona. And they both remember my grandfather who retired at 65 flush with cash and just "sat on his ass in front of the television until he died." My grandfather lived 27 long years after he retired and he was bored, grumpy, and did absolutely nothing productive all those years.
