“You told me you would buy me a beachfront villa for retirement,” Alice whined.

“So I did, and so I have!” Luther answered.

“This is no villa!”

“What are you a walking dictionary now?”

“You think we can live in this?”

“Our first place was worse than this,” Luther argued.

“I cannot believe you spent actual money for this.”

“You’re never satisfied,” Luther replied.

“Who would be satisfied with this?”

“Harrison Ford loved it,” Luther answered.

“You bought this from him?”


But I expected more.”

“Wait are you looking at the cabana?”


“Step to your right.”

“OH MY!”
