My first reaction, I fear to admit, was, “Wow, that seems a bit old to be making that kind of stressful change!” Then I recalled my wife, less than a decade behind you, who rode a bottomless roller coaster with our nephew three times on the day she qualified for early Social Security this year. So good luck, enjoy the ride, and remember to keep your vital documents in your carry-on bag and your carry-on bag with you at all times.
