    My payment was never more than $450. It's not a big house. I had a rollover IRA from a couple other jobs, and when I turned 50.5, I decided to take some out and pay the house off. I'm still unsure if the FAA is going to let me fly again. It was my goal to have it paid off by the time I turned 60, and the injury put me back. If I have to just take any job, I'll be in good shape. :thumbsup:

    My in-laws paid off their 30 year mortgage this summer. It only took them 42 years.

    Congratulations Tony. That's more than awesome. I'm sharing the same goal with you. However, we may end up selling the house earlier and moving to a condo to be done with the mortgage in couple of years. Must be really nice to be mortgage free.

    Not so much a weight, as a thorn out of my paw.

    I just wanted to say that I owe money on a credit card. I know I’m the only one that does. I’m special.

    I'm with you there. I have one card that I owe a bit on, but it's less than 10, so I'm not worried about it. That will get done next.

    Pretty good. I just renewed my insurance at ~900 year and taxes are normally ~3,000. 4/3 on 1/3 acre.
