Priceless! Also, a little too close to home.

Re: The Cost Of Retiring Late

I see yet another use for dryer sheets. Beats wanting to poke my eyes out with a stick to stop the pain.

Re: The Cost Of Retiring Late

Am I the only guy who winced at seeing him use a lawnmower like that?

He should be wearing steel-toed shoes!

I was going to post this book link as a counter-argument but... well... never mind.

Re: The Cost Of Retiring Late

After picking the new motorhome last fall, we stumbled back to New England, haphazardly picking campgrounds.* More than a couple of campgrounds prompted a good deal of culture shock.* *I guess it pays to research before you plop.

Anyhow, upon checking into one campground, the clerk dryly advised us that "the small pool and hot tub are clothing optional."* We looked at each other, paused, and simultaneously said "Woo Hoo!"*and started laughing before we caught her look.* The clerk was annoyed.* She scowled and shooed us off to our campsite.

Anyhow, perhaps it was the weather, perhaps just plain good sense, but most of the folks there (hey, I had to look) partook of the clothing option.* Your photo would put the remaining few free spirits to shame.** *Everyone there was well past their salad days, and that is what clothing is for.
