What To Do In Retirement

   A longtime friend from South Florida recently invited me to his retirement party.  I was unable to attend, but sent him an e-mail asking him what he planned to do when he retired.  The following is his response to my question. 

   ” I have a lot of interesting things planned now that I am retired.  I recently applied for a building permit for a new home.  The home was going to be 100 feet tall and 400 feet wide and it will contain 12 gun turrets.  It will also have a loud outside entertainment sound system that will broadcast to the entire neighborhood.  It will also have a parking lot for 200 cars, and I plan to paint it green with a pink trim. 

   The city council told me,  ” Forget it… IT AIN’T GONNA EVER HAPPEN. ”  So I sent the application in again, but this time I called it a Mosque.

   Work starts on Monday. ”
