Early Retirement?

"You mean you and Jackie tried to retire?"


"But you went back to work thereafter?"


"And then you started this successful business?"


"And now here you are."

"Clearly so."

"May I ask a rather personal question?"

"Sure. Shoot."

"How old, precisely, were you when this happened?"



"Well, it's hard to remember that exactly. I'd say I was about 25 or so."

"Only 25? And you were retiring?"

"Well, yes, but Jackie was older. In his late 30s."

"And retiring?"

"Yes. He did very well and had made some rather good money, and thought he'd settle down to a quiet life. But this opporunity came up-"

"Yes. So you said."

"-and we couldn't pass it up."

"I see."
