Good news--for me, at least

Just saw a story that asserts that my home state, Massachusetts (a commonwealth, actually), is one of the 10 worst states for retirement. Whew! I don't want to spend my retirement (when and if) among a bunch of old people, any more than I want to be surrounded by tourists when I travel. When I travel, I want to be the only tourist (well, with the lovely Diane), and when I retire I want to be among younger people.

So, all you alte kakas out there: Go to Florida!

Old Man Killers? That seems to be the literal translation of alte kapa
according to Wikipedia.

Is this a Yiddish saying?

Way down in South Massachusetts, down in South Massachusetts, that's as far south as I want to be. In the south they substitute "North Carolina" and "as far north as I want to be".

Here's hoping that you and the lovely Diane have the best holidays (any and all that you observe) money CAN'T buy.
