This has such a ring of truth to it, and is written with a good dose of humor as well. BTW, I think I know your husband. I enjoyed it a lot.

Do I have this to look forward to? A nice humorous story about retirement - very good pace and some good details.

I loved the music connection between him and the 85 year old mother, that was particularly rich. Very nicely done!

I hear you on the talk radio/Fox New Network thing. I had to break my husband cold turkey -- and we're in our 40s! And I refuse to go to my in-laws -- Fox News 24/7. I know this is supposed to be humorous, but it gives me the shivers. That aside, this is clever and well written.
You present the realism of retirement with humor and hope.

A great lesson on "meeting in the middle" - literally and figuratively. I enjoyed this very much.

Humor, nicely tied up with a great message!
Very humorous. I've often wondered how to handle "wall to wall" husband. I need a basement!
