X2...I told my parents a very long time ago, spend smartly and as much as you can...just leave me instructions how you want any remaining money to be spent (charity, missions, etc...) when y'all go as I don't need/expect it for myself

Career firefighter since '89. 3 years Engine work,7 years Rescue Squad and the rest a Ladder guy. Yes, things are starting to hurt for no reason except getting older. I just hope my pension is there when I retire. The wife is disabled with back issues. Just glad to be working and able.

DW and I are both active duty Army. She's going to retire at 20 and I plan on staying to 30 or until they point to the door and start playing really loud music... Still a long way to go but so far loving every minute of it. She plans on teaching after the big green machine and I plan on doing something that involves not being in charge of anyone, especially 20 year olds, ha ha!

Well, it *would* have been.....

but since you rudely asked....

Nuttin' honey, gonna leave it all to a no kill animal shelter. So if you still come around, we'll know it's not just suckin' up for inheritance.

(actually we've considered droppin' that bomb, just to see if they *do* still come around....then if they do, April Fool's!....or claim Alzheimer's)

I didn't get the nickname Weezer cuz I'm all sweetness and light. /snark

Offshore. Stupid money and 6 months off a year. All I did was take a break from college to make money, and that was 18 years ago. Some people may say I'm not home much, but do the math, I have more time with my wife kids than the average 9 to 5 job would allow. Not many jobs work a 21 day on, 21 day off rotation, thus giving you a 6 month vacation.

This job allows us to practically live like we're retired. No debt, full timing, homeschooling kids, live where we want, and we're only in our upper 30's. Can't beat it. Of course, none of this came over night. We did work VERY hard to get where we're at now.
