    65 7/12 now, seems like I didn't realize how old I was until a cancer diagnosis 2 months ago. They tell me that I'm probably good now after surgery, but I'll be a cancer patient the rest of my life.
    No matter how old I am, I've never thought the clock was ticking as fast as it is until now.
    Told my doc that I had no time for dying, too many projects to finish. Went back to work in 3 weeks, cause I'm self employed and get no sick days or vacation days.
    I only learn the important things in life when they kick my ass.
  7. Yeah, that cancer thing snaps you into reality real quick.

  10. Hey Dan Pasadena,
    Figure out the difference before you decide,
    In my case waiting 'till 70, it would take
    9 years to catch up! I didn't think it was worth the gamble!
    I started at 65! Haven't regretted it yet!

  14. I started the day I was eligible. A guy I worked with decided to wait until 70. He never drew a dime and never will.

We are fortunate to be able to pursue our hobby. So kept on truckin, as in IMG_0635.JPG IMG_0880.JPG IMG_3539.JPG IMG_0563.JPG IMG_0979.JPG IMG_0564.JPG I wish all my fellow H.A.M.B.ers all the best, live out your dreams, keep the Faith, and make everyday the best it can be....that’s from my ️ Mercman@bulldog
