A wife imagines her husband's retirement as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Finally they will have time to do all the things they never had time to do before. Things like enjoying exotic vacations, walking along the beach together at sunset, or taking ballroom dancing lessons. Then the day comes, and a familiar voice calls from the door, "Honey, I'm home...forever." Being together twenty-four hours, seven days a week makes most wives of retirees question not only their attitude toward retirement but also their sanity after a few months. This humorous advice guide from a wife who has experienced it all will have heads nodding in agreement from seasoned wives as they caution the soon- to- be wives of retired husbands not to quit their day jobs just yet.
