101 Things to Do With a Retired Man
To Get Him Out from Under Your Feet!
Hardcover ISBN: 1846015561
Sunny days and heady nights await you in retirement, not just for two weeks each year, but forever! You have been looking forward to this and have an endless list of things to do, but only once you have sorted out your other half and got him out from under your feet. 101 Things to do with a Retired Man is designed to inspire and tease your retiree into having the time of his life and to fill his days (and yours) with sometimes silly, sometimes useful, but always interesting things to do, which do not include lying on the sofa, watching daytime television, tidying the garden to within an inch of its life or stacking and restacking the dishwasher in the most efficient fashion, as apparently only a man can. Retirement is the perfect time to learn a new skill, get in touch with old friends, and explore the great wide open, so get out there and get started! This hilarious look at retirement is cheaper than marriage counseling and makes the perfect tongue-in-cheek gift for anyone facing their (and their husband's) retirement with excitement but more than a little wariness.
