Photo provided as prompt
Hank thought they'd make the transition from working to retirement quite easily, but forgot his wife couldn't swim.

Grandma's daughter Calico provides the word of the week before she sees the photo. This week's word is transition. I have used it in my submission of 115 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

Good take on both the image, and the mandatory word. Rather than being 'succinctly yours', it is more like 'tweetly yours'.

He forgot??? I'm not buying that one. He was probably just planning for a quiet retirement! :D

Uhoh! (Maybe he didn't forget at all -- is this the start of a murder mystery? ;>)

Uh oh. I hope the empty chair doesn't mean that things went dreadfully awry in their retirement. Thanks for the chuckle, Kay!

Hahaha! I can't swim either, but I love the beach. There have been several times when somebody had to leave their dry, comfy beach chair to jump in after me. Good one.
