"It's been a wonderful eight years, but I need a break."

At the Happy Sunset Retirement Community, there's Ethel, Myrtle, Harvey, and Tex. And then there's Brian. The retired kid. He's here to escape school, homework, and daily chores.

But retired living has its challenges, especially when you're sixty years younger than everybody else!
