...Jimmy Buffet took a single hit song and built it into a billion dollar empire of restaurant chains, tequila, lifestyle accessories and concerts.

Now retirement communities for aging boomers.

Brilliant.

except that it's in Florida and there likely will be about a dozen homes
per acre, and all the residents will be old, and I'm sure the morality
celebrated in "Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw" will not prevail there ...

Sigh ...

My understanding is that retirement communities have a high percentage of STDs. Color me shocked.

...the age of the places begins at 55.

And they are Baby Boomers - the ones who coined that phrase.

Bet there will be a lot of that going on - it's called "Margaritaville".

I'll keep Jimmy's new venture in mind when my wife and I get tired of dealing with the snow and the cold winters and the hassles of maintaining our acreage here in the Colorado Rockies. A retirement place in Florida or a similar clime might start sounding good by then :-)

Cheers,
SB

Buffet said the song was originally written for Elvis. Lucky for him Elvis died and was unable to use it.:)
