In the 80’s, I was a Sales Manager for a new home builder. 11:30 a.m. on a glorious Sunday, the agent scheduled for the model home called in sick. I gave Mary a hug and said, “I’ll be at the model till 5.” As I settled in at the model two cars drove up and 4 couples, twice my age, were walking up to the two story town home. I greeted the first gentleman and he said, “Hi I’m Bob” and then the second gentleman, “Hi, I’m Bob” followed by a laugh. Now I knew they were here for the good time and I relaxed, determined to have as much fun as they were having.
After they scoured the place from top to bottom, we gathered in the living room,“Here’s the keys to a twin home rambler under construction, I think you’ll like better”, and they did! When the dust settled, 3 sisters and 2 brothers along with a best friend, moved into 5 contiguous twin homes and enjoyed each other’s company for their retirement years.
