    AN ALTERNATIVE RETIREMENT HOME!

    There will be no nursing home in my future......... When I get old and
    feeble, I am going to get on a Princess Cruise Ship. The average cost for a
    nursing home is $200 per day. I have checked on reservations at Princess and
    I can get a long term discount and senior discount price of $135 per day.
    That leaves $65 a day for:

    1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day.

    2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle to the restaurant,
    or I can have room service ( which means I can have breakfast in bed every
    day of the week).

    3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a workout room, free
    washers and dryers, and shows every night.

    4. They have free toothpaste and razors, and free soap and shampoo.

    5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a patient. An extra $5
    worth of tips will have the entire staff scrambling to help you.

    6. I will get to meet new people every 7 or 14 days.

    7. T.V. broken? Light bulb need changing? Need to have the mattress
    replaced? No Problem! They will fix everything and apologize for your
    inconvenience.

    8. Clean sheets and towels every day, and you don't even have to ask for
    them.

    9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a hip you are on Medicare. If
    you fall and break a hip on the Princess ship they will upgrade you to a
    suite for the rest of your life.

    Now hold on for the best! Do you want to see South America, the Panama
    Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, or name where you want to go?
    Princess will have a ship ready to go. So don't look for me in a nursing
    home, just call shore to ship.

    P.S. And don't forget, when you die, they just dump you over the side at no
    charge.

    What a deal :eek: I will see if my Long Term Care Policy will pick up the tab after all they will be saving money. Just sow me up in a canvas bag and slid me off the fantail when I die. LOL :D
