    Extremely short article I came upon while reading Yahoo Finance.

    Cliffs:
    Old ladys' husband died, she sold their 10acre Florida estate and started cruising
    Lived on Cruise for almost 7 years now
    Cost for this year estimated at 164k

    According to comments, it's apparently smart to do because retirement home cost 150k/year anyway?

    What say you Rich Sherdogger?

    EDIT:
    Oh yeah, for people that don't Math. It's slightly under 14k per month.

    Good for her. Sounds like she is having a blast.

    We should all be so lucky.

    I agree it's a fun retirement life for a single person at her age. 80+, probably can't travel much on foot anymore anyway.

    EDIT:
    If she was 50~60, maybe the money could be better spent joining worldwide tours.

    Well what the hell is she going to do with all the money she has when she's dead? If that's what she wants to do the it's a great fucking idea.
