A Little Humor From Cape Coral

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sellstate Advantage Realty

Well the humidity is gone and the nights are cooling down to the 6o's, But that is the only thing cooling off in Cape Coral! The real estate deals are hotter than they have been in years. Buyers are everywhere and it is a welcomed change!

I was reading recently that baby boomers retirement will peak in 2011! More people retiring at one time than ever before! I would like to be one of them but that will probably be a little premature for me! Since turning 50 a few years ago I continually receive emails from friends who want to remind me of my age! Here is a sample:

 

Perks of reaching 50!!!!

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.

3. No one expects you to run--anywhere.

4. People call at 9 pm and ask you, “Did I wake you?”

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

7. Things you buy now won't wear out.

8. You can eat supper at 4 pm.

9. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

10. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

11. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the
room.

12. You sing along with elevator music.

13. Your eyes won't get much worse.

14. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay
off.

15. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national
weather service.

16. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember
them either.

17. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.

18. You won't remember where you saw this list.

And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.

Most important of all……………………….

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on
the same night!!!! 

I hope it brought a smile to your face! Have a great week!

Mike - Thanks for the humor.  I'll be able to put these to use next year.  I was just in your area last week during an annual girlfriend getaway on Sanibel.  As they say, "what happens on Sanibel, stays on Sanibel."  We had a great time even with the clouds and cooler weather.  Enjoy this new decade!

Well Mike... the last comment certainly got me laughing.  All of the statements above seemed to be more of a checklist lol and I think I've experienced all of them.  You can rest assured that your new friends will be an optometrist, your family physician, etc, and a whole brand of commercials that you never paid much attention to will now interest you.

Hi Mike- Cute list!!  Glad sales are picking up in the Cape.  I too am receiving more calls from Realtors interested in staging their listings to get moving faster.  There is only one way for us to go.....UP, UP, UP!!  Regards-Kathleen G
