Richard second-guesses his decision to stay at home when retirement simply means more obligation to his real boss, Hyacinth, in these three leisure-themed 28-minute episodes from the BBC. The lady of the house has her husband both up a tree and up a ladder in "How to Retire Early If You're Not Careful." Whether looking for Iron Age remains or a despairing teddy-clad Rose, Richard is up to the task. A weekend on a moored yacht strikes Hyacinth as the perfect opportunity to dazzle the neighbors in "What to Wear When Yachting." But a motorboat isn't very impressive and neither is a spill in the lake, as the waterlogged couple discovers. The final installment, "How to Go on Holiday Without Really Trying," finds Hyacinth making bogus plans to take an expensive cruise so she can outdo a neighbor who once snubbed her, but there's nothing grand about Richard in a bar with brother-in-law Onslow on a Sunday morning, nor about the married vicar with a suggestively clothed Rose in his arms, now, is there? --Kimberly HeinrichsFrom the Back Cover:
How To Retire Early If You're Not Careful - Now that Richard has officially started his early retirement, Hyacinth has great plans for their time together. First there is a trip to the countryside to search for the Iron Age remains but further cultural excursions are curtails when Hyacinth's sister, Daisy and her husband Onslow, inform her that their sister Rose is behaving in an outrageous manner. As the eldest sister, Hyacinth is called upon to sort things out--preferably before the vicar arrives!
How To Go On Holiday Without Really Trying - If Delia Wheelright can spend a month in the Caribbean, then Hyacinth is determined to go one better--even if it's only better quality holiday brochures, which mean a trip to the travel agents for Hyacinth and husband Richard.
What To Wear When Yachting - The opportunity of spending the weekend on a cruiser thrills Hyacinth. But there is so much to arrange in advance--a telephone call to obtain the shipping forecast, purchasing the correct yachting gear for herself and husband Richard, and preparing a "nautical light buffet" to share with family and friends on board.
