    We are so excited, although we are elderly, but bearing no unforeseen complications, we are retiring to
    South Walton at Christmas! So many years of renting the properties, worrying about the hurricanes, watching the
    Markets, buying and selling at the best and worst, are hopefully going to bring us to the place we love the most!
    We will be the old folks on the beach with the elderly Golden Retriver drinking Miller Lite.

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    :welcome: njackie! Retiring in South Walton is our plan too. The home where we plan to retire is under construction. Everything on the first floor is for us and ADA. The second floor is for our daughter and son-in-law and our future grandchildren. Once the real estate situation gets better, we will put our big home in GA on the market. No rush because it's paid for. We always thought it would be passed down through the generations, but I think our daughter and son-in-law will end up in Boston after he gets his Ph.D. in robotics. When that home sells, we will probably buy a condo as a second residence wherever our daughter and son-in-law end up.

    Hope that your plans work out as you desire. And you're only as old as you feel. Personally, I am an 18-year-old trapped in the body of an older person. Not retirement age yet, but the clock ticks faster the older one gets.

    What a Christmas it will be! How many Miller Lites does it take your Golden Retriever before he looks at you and says, "&*%$# it! Go get it yourself?"
