I got this in my email, not sure if John McKain is really responsible probably not, but it is kind of funny.

This is NOT an outrageous idea at all when you think about it!! NO Nursing Home for me!

With the average cost for a Nursing Home per day reaching $188.00, there is a better way when we get old & feeble. I have ascertained that I can get a nice room at the Holiday Inn for around $65.00...that leaves $123.00 a day for beer, food (room service), laundry, gratuities and special TV movies. They have a swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge, washer, dryer, etc. Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap.

Super 8 is somewhat more economical and they have a free breakfast,
though you usually have to walk next door for lunch and dinner. There may be a bit of a wait to get that first floor room, but that's OK, it takes months to get into decent nursing homes. There is the Senior Bus, the Handicap bus (if you fake a decent limp), a Church bus or van, cabs, and even a regular bus.

For a change of lunch take the Airport Bus and eat at one of the fast food cafe's there. The Inn has security, and if someone sees you drop over, they will call an ambulance. And should you break a hip, the American Way is to Sue. What more can you ask for? As a bonus, they all have AARP and other Senior discounts.

When I reach the Golden age
help me keep my grin
Just check my old rickety ass
into the nearest Holiday Inn!

Oh, that is funny. And true. I loved the story of the woman from England who sold her house, got rid of the furnishings, and booked passage on a cruise ship. She lives there, and the monthly rate is less than her room and board would be at a comparable home. All the food she could imagine, first class service, a full staff to wait on her, and entertainment every night! I think that the cruise line gives her a discounted rate.
